Family

Putative outer membrane protein (IPR003678)

Short name: Put_OMP

Family relationships

None.

Description

Helicobacter pylori is a causative agent of gastritis and peptic ulceration in humans. As the first step towards development of a vaccine against H. pylori infection, many attempts have been made to identify protective antigens. Potential targets for vaccine development are H. pylori-specific proteins that are surface-exposed and highly antigenic.

This family consists of putative outer membrane proteins, mainly from H. pylori.
