Opa protein repertoires of disease-causing and carried meningococci

Abstract:

The meningococcal Opa proteins play an important role in pathogenesis by mediating invasion of human cells. The aim of this investigation was to determine whether carried and disease-associated meningococci possess different Opa repertoires in 227 disease-associated meningococci, isolated in the United Kingdom over a period of 6 years, were compared to the repertoires in 190 asymptomatically carried meningocci isolated in the United Kingdom from a contemporary, nonepidemic period.
