Staphylococcus aureus Cowan 1 cells were armed with anti-flagellar (anti-H) antibody produced in rabbits immunized with flagellar core protein prepared from Vibrio vulnificus. This reagent was assessed by coagglutination for its capacity to agglutinate and identify V. vulnificus. A species-specific H antigen is expressed in the core proteins of the polar flagella of V. vulnificus. Of 435 V. vulnificus isolates identified bacteriologically, 432 (99.3%) were agglutinated in the slide test within… CONTINUE READING
