Identification of a 19.3-kDa protein in MRHA-positive Edwardsiella tarda: putative fimbrial major subunit.

Abstract

The hemagglutinating properties of Edwardsiella tarda isolated from fish were investigated. Hemagglutination of E. tarda was not inhibited by D-mannose but was strongly inhibited by fetuin and N-acetylneuraminic acid. Extraction of hemagglutinating activity from bacterial cells was achieved using n-octyl-beta-D-thioglucoside (NOTG), and the NOTG extracts… (More)
