Domain

Bacterial surface antigen (D15) (IPR000184)

Short name: Bac_surfAg_D15

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The protein sequences of d15 from various strains of Haemophilus influenzae are highly conserved, with only a small variable region identified near the carboxyl terminus of the protein [PMID: 7737523]. D15 is a highly conserved antigen that is protective in animal models and it may be a useful component of a universal subunit vaccine against Haemophilus infection and disease [PMID: 9284140]. Membrane proteins from other bacteria have been shown to elicit protective immunity. Oma87 is a protective outer membrane antigen of Pasteurella multocida [PMID: 8757848].
