Virulence and immunogenicity in experimental animals of Bacillus anthracis strains harbouring or lacking 110 MDa and 60 MDa plasmids

, : Virulence and immunogenicity in experimental animals of Bacillus anthracis strains harbouring or lacking 110 MDa and 60 MDa plasmids. Journal of General Microbiology 132(2): 557-559

The virulence for mice of B. anthracis strains cured of the 110 MDa or the 60 MDa plasmid was less than a hundredth of the parental strains harbouring these plasmids.

A comparative study was made of the virulence and immunogenicity in mice or guinea pigs of Bacillus anthracis strains harbouring 110 MDa and/or 60 MDa plasmids. Strains cured of the 110 MDa or the 60 MDa plasmid were more than 100-fold less virule...
