A bacterial population change involving chromosomal rearrangement and phenotypic changes in antigens, proteins and lipopolysaccharides is described for strains of Leptospira biflexa that were previously grown in media containing homologous oligoclonal antibodies. The chromosomal rearrangement phenomenon showed that the variants differed from the parent… CONTINUE READING
