BACKGROUND Decorin adherence is crucial in the pathogenesis of Lyme borreliosis. Decorin-binding proteins (Dbp) A and B are the adhesins that mediate this interaction. DbpA and B of Borrelia garinii, Borrelia afzelii, and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto (ss) differ in their amino acid sequence, but little attention has been paid to the potential difference in their decorin binding. METHODS We expressed recombinant DbpA and DbpB of B. garinii, B. afzelii, and B. burgdorferi ss and studied… CONTINUE READING
