Outer membrane protein (OMP) from Pasteurella multocida serotype B:2 was extracted and studied for its ability to immunize animals against P. multocida infection and to resist phagocytosis by murine peritoneal macrophage. Inoculation of OMP in rabbits resulted in the production of agglutinating antibodies which passively protected mice against P. multocida challenge and caused lysis of virulent P. multocida cells in vitro. Mice vaccinated with OMP vaccine resisted the challenge showing a… CONTINUE READING
