Mycoplasma synoviae has two major membrane antigens, MSPA and MSPB, both of which are phase variable and which may be coordinately involved in adhesion of the organism to erythrocytes. A single gene (vlhA) from M. synoviae was characterized, and polypeptides were expressed from nonoverlapping 5' and 3' regions in Escherichia coli. The expression product of the vlhA 5' region reacted with specific reagents against MSPB, while that of the 3' region reacted with specific reagents against MSPA… CONTINUE READING
