  • The ospA and ospB genes encode the major outer membrane proteins of the Lyme disease spirochaete Borrelia burgdorferi. The deduced translation products from the ospA and ospB genes were: (OspA) 273 amino acids long with a molecular weight of 29334, and (OspB) 296 amino acids long with a molecular weight of 31739. The two Osp proteins showed a great degree of sequence similarity indicating a recent evolutionary event. Molecular analysis and sequence comparison of OspA and OspB with other… CONTINUE READING
