Moraxella catarrhalis is an important human pathogen that causes otitis media, sinusitis, and lower respiratory tract infections in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Outer membrane protein G1b is a approximately 29-kDa protein that has a high degree of homology among strains, contains surface-exposed epitopes, and is a potential vaccine candidate. The ompG1b gene was cloned, expressed in Escherichia coli, and purified. To assess the expression of outer membrane protein G1b… CONTINUE READING
