Bacterial lipoproteins of varying size and functional role in physiology/pathogenesis are widely prevalent among Gram-negative bacterial species. Among virulent bacteria, Pasteurella multocida is known to be associated with diverse infectious diseases of livestock worldwide and possess several outer membrane proteins (OMPs) as virulence factors. In the present study, we cloned and sequenced omp16 gene of different P. multocida strains (n = 9) of Indian origin and compared with representative… Expand
