Identification of a Bordetella pertussis bvg-regulated porin-like protein.
ABSTRACT: Bordetella pertussis 18323 produces a bvg-regulated 39.1-kDa porin-like protein, OmpQ. OmpQ had 61% similarity to the major porin of B. pertussis and contains conserved regions common to both the neisserial and enteric porin families. The results of Southern blot analysis indicate that strains of Bordetella parapertussis and Bordetella bronchiseptica but not Bordetella avium contain this gene.
