Sequence variability of the 40-kDa outer membrane proteins of Fusobacterium nucleatum strains and a model for the topology of the proteins


The complete nucleotide sequences of the fomA genes encoding the 40-kDa outer membrane proteins (OMPs) of strains ATCC 10953 and ATCC 25586 of Fusobacterium nucleatum were determined using the genomic DNA, or DNA fragments ligated into a vector plasmid, as template in a polymerase chain reaction. The deduced amino acid sequences of these two proteins were… (More)
