Detection of gonococcal antigens by an indirect sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

The detection of gonococcal antigens by an indirect sandwich ELISA system is described. The feasibility of using rabbit antiserum raised against whole cells of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain 9 to detect gonococcal lipopolysaccharide, whole cells, and outer membrane (OM) protein was investigated. OM protein was found to be the main antigen detectable with the… CONTINUE READING
