The Chlamydia pneumoniae genome-encoded open reading frames Cpn0146, Cpn0147, and Cpn0308 were expressed as recombinant proteins for detecting C. pneumoniae-specific antibodies in samples from three groups of individuals including 183 with C. pneumoniae-associated respiratory infection (group I), 60 healthy blood donors (group II), and 32 with no known respiratory infection (group III). The recombinant Cpn0146 was recognized by 71 (38.8% positive recognition rate), 15 (25%) and 1 (3.1… CONTINUE READING
