Disease relevance of Neisseriaceae


High impact information on Neisseriaceae

  • Beta-lactamase production in commensal Neisseriaceae [5].
  • The Neisseriaceae can acquire iron (Fe) from lactoferrin (Lf) using host-Lf receptors on the bacterial surface [6].
  • Many pathogens of the Pasteurellaceae and Neisseriaceae possess a surface receptor that binds transferrin (Tf) as an initial step in an iron acquisition process [7].
  • In contrast, bacterial lactoferrin receptors have only been described for human pathogens in the family Neisseriaceae, and were believed to consist of a single protein, Lbp1, which is highly homologous to Tbp1 [8].
  • Two monoclonal antibodies (G6 and 7B), generated against a 63-kDa stress protein (GSP63) from Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain VP1, were used to investigate the antigenic heterogeneity of GSP63 among the Neisseriaceae and its antigenic relationship with the Hsp60 heat-shock protein family [9].
