  1. Antigens of Rickettsia conorii recognized by seropositive healthy people from Salamanca (central-West Spain).

    Article - En anglais

    The antigenic reactivity in Western immunoblotting assay of individual Rickettsia conorii components with sera of healthy people living in Salamanca Province, an endemic zone of Mediterranean spotted fever, is evaluated.

    Polypeptides of molecular weights 100 kDa (92.7%), 135 kDa (75.6%), 160 kDa (70.7%) and 115 kDa (48.8%) were recognized by a higher proportion of sera with indirect immunofluorescent antibody test titers >=1:80.

    Reaction with apparent rickettsial lipopolysaccharide was found in 15 (36.6%) of these samples.
