Abstract
The omp1 genes encoding the major outer membrane proteins (MOMPs) of avian Chlamydia psittaci serovar A and D strains were cloned and sequenced, The nucleotide sequences of the avian C. psittaci serovar A and D MOMP genes were found to be 98.9 and 87.8% identical, respectively, to that of the avian C. psittaci serovar A strain 6BC, 84.6 and 99.8% identical to that of the avian C. psittaci serovar D strain NJ1, 79.1 and 81.1% identical to that of the C. psittaci guinea pig inclusion conjunctivitis strain, 60.9 and 62.5% identical to that of the Chlamydia trachomatis L2 strain, and 57.5 and 60.4% identical to that of the Chlamydia pneumoniae IOL-207 strain, The serovar A or D MOMPs were cloned in the mammalian expression plasmid pcDNA1. When pcDNA1/MOMP A or pcDNA1/MOMP D was introduced into COS7 cells, a 40-kDa protein that was identical in size, antigenicity, and electrophoretic mobility to native MOMP was produced. Recombinant MOMP (rMOMP) was located in the cytoplasm of transfected COS7 cells as well as in the plasma membrane and was immunoaccessible. Intramuscular administration of pcDNA1/MOMP in specific-pathogen-free turkeys resulted in local expression of rMOMP in its native conformation, after which anti-MOMP antibodies appeared in the serum.
