Introduction

Treponema pallidum is a gram-negative spirochaete bacterium and is considered to be metabolically crippled. There are at least four known subspecies: T. pallidum pallidum, T. pallidum pertenue, T. pallidum carateum and T. pallidum endemicum. The helical structure of T. pallidum pallidum allows it to move in a corkscrew motion through viscous mediums such as mucus. Treponema pallidum sub sp. pallidum has one of the smallest bacterial genomes at 1.14 million base pairs (Mb) and has limited metabolic capabilities, reflecting its adaptation through genome reduction to the rich environment of mammalian tissue.

Description

The E.Coli derived recombinant protein contains the T. Pallidum p17 immunodominant regions. The protein contains beta- galactosidase (114 kDa) fused at the N- terminus.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Purification Method

Treponema Pallidum protein was purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.

Purity

Treponema Pallidum protein protein is >90% pure as determined by 10% PAGE (coomassie staining).

Formulation

8M urea, 20mM Tris-HCl pH-8 and10mM B-ME.

Stability

Treponema Pallidum protein although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C. 
Please prevent freeze thaw cycles.

Specificity

Immunoreactive with sera of Trp. Pallidum infected individuals.

Applications

Treponema Pallidum protein is suitable for ELISA and Western blots, excellent antigen for detection of Trp. Pallidum with minimal specificity problems.
