Catalogue number



Borrelia is a part of the genus of bacteria of the spirochete phylum. Borrelia causes borreliosis, which is a zoonotic, vector-borne disease transmitted mostly by ticks and some by lice, depending on the species. Of the 36 known species of Borrelia, 12 are distinguished to cause Lyme disease or borreliosis and are transmitted by ticks. The Gram-negative bacterium Borreliella spielmanii is one of the pathogens of the Borreliella burgdorferi sensu lato complex causing Lyme disease. DbpA, also known as p17 or Osp17, is a heterogeneous protein among the human pathogenic B. burgdorferi sensu lato species.


Recombinant Borrelia Spielmanii Decorin Binding Protein A produced in E.coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a calculated molecular mass of 17kDa.

Borrelia Spielmanii DbpA is expressed with a -10x His tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
