C-reactive protein: a predominant LPS-binding acute phase protein responsive to Pseudomonas infection.

Abstract

As a structural component of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, endotoxin, also known as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) exhibits strong immunostimulatory properties, rendering it a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of Gram-negative septicaemia. Our attempt to identify LPS-binding proteins from the hemolymph of the horseshoe crab led to the isolation and… (More)
