Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is a highly prevalent pathogen which colonizes the ciliated epithelial lining of the porcine respiratory tract. Expression libraries constructed from genomic DNA of the non-pathogenic strain M. hyopneumoniae J were screened with porcine hyperimmune antiserum against M. hyopneumoniae. One clone expressed a 28 kDa protein which was… CONTINUE READING
