Serological and morphological observation on the outer membrane of ruminal bacteroides ruminicola ssp ruminicola



Serological and morphological observation on the outer membrane of ruminal bacteroides ruminicola ssp ruminicola



Japanese Journal of Zootechnical Science 61(8): 714-718



Serological and morphological properties of the outer membrane of ruminal Bacteriodes ruminicola subsp. ruminicola were investigated. Purity of the outer membrane preparation was certified by electron microscopy. In the immunodiffusion test, the outer membrane antigen of B. ruminicola subsp. ruminicola showed a single precipitin line between rabbit antiserum raised against the homologous specimen. No precipitin line was observed with heterologous antisera of the other bacterial species such as B. ruminicola subsp. brevis B. succinogenes an Selenomonas ruminantium. Indirect immunoflourescent test showed that the antiserum raised against the outer membrane of B. ruminicola subsp. ruminicola was intensely reactive with the homologous organisms. The antiserum was not reactive with any other bacterial species. The outer membrane antigen was detected not inside the confines of cell wall, but in the outer cell wall of B. ruminicola subsp. ruminicola by immunoelectron microscopy. The results demonstrate that the outer membrane of B. ruminicola subsp. ruminicola contains subspecies-specific antigen.
