The cell surfaces of two Chlamydia trachomatis serovars were explored by immune electron microscopy with monoclonal anti bodies that recognize a number of chlamydial outermembrane components. Species, subspecies and serovar-reactive epitopes on the major outermembrane protein (MOMP) of a lymphogranuloma venereum biovar strain, L2/434/Bu, and a trachoma biovar strain, F/UW-6/Cx, were exposed on the surfaces of both elementary bodies (EBs) and reticulate bodies (RBs). Three epitopes on MOMP were… CONTINUE READING
