The tbpA and tbpB genes encoding the transferrin receptor proteins Tbp1 and Tbp2 from a serotype 7 strain of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae were cloned, sequenced, and expressed in Escherichia coli. The tbpB gene was preceded by putative promoter and regulatory sequences and was separated from the downstream tbpA gene by a 13 bp intercistronic sequence suggesting that the two genes may be coordinately transcribed. Determination of the nucleotide sequence of this region facilitated PCR… CONTINUE READING
