Proteomic comparison of virulent phase I and avirulent phase II of Coxiella burnetii, the causative agent of Q fever.

Abstract

Coxiella burnetii, a category B biological warfare agent, causes multiple outbreaks of the zoonotic disease Q fever world-wide, each year. The virulent phase I and avirulent phase II variants of the Nine Mile RSA 493 and 439 strains of C. burnetii were propagated in embryonated hen eggs and then purified by centrifugation through Renografin gradients.
