Abstract: The adhesin F18ac purified on Sepharose CL 4B column chromatography and SDS-PACE stained with Coomassie Blue and Western blotting using specific anti-F18ac serum presented one band of approximate to 17 kDa. Gold immunolabeling revealed that the adhesin F18ac has a fimbrial structure on the bacterial surface. The first 27 amino acid residues of the N-terminal portion of the adhesin F18ac, showed 92.5% homology (25 amino acids) with the F107 (F18ab) fimbriae. (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
