Whereas the complete genome of Coxiella burnetii (C.b.), the etiological agent of Q-fever, has recently been published (Seshadri et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA. 100, 5455-5460, 2003), the C.b. proteome is still under study. Using the bioinformatic approach, we found in total 309 proteins on two dimensional electroctrophoretic images of C.b. whole cell lysates. Eighteen major protein species were subjected to peptide mass fingerprinting and identified as the products of 6 known open reading… CONTINUE READING
