The hemagglutinin genes hagB and hagC of Porphyromonas gingivalis, a putative periodontopathic microorganism, have been cloned, sequenced, and characterized. However, the roles of these putative virulence genes have not yet been determined. In this study, an in vivo expression technology vector termed pPGIVET was constructed and used to determine if hagB… CONTINUE READING
