Surface Lipoprotein p27 Antibody Description


Surface Lipoprotein p27 of Borrelia burgdorferi is a surface-exposed lipoprotein that has been shown (by Western blot and Northern blot) to be expressed in the European B. burgdorferi strain B29, but not in the American strain B31. Cell envelope proteins of bacterial pathogens play important roles in the host-parasite interactions that occur during infection, including cell adherence, cell invasion, and immune cell activation or evasion. p27 is a basic protein of 248 amino acids with a typical prokaryotic leader sequence of 17 amino acid residues at the N-terminus of the proposed translation product. The p27 gene is located on a linear plasmid of a size of approximately 55 kb. Borrelia spirochetes are unique among diderm bacteria in their abundance of surface-displayed lipoproteins, some of which play important roles in the pathogenesis of Lyme disease and relapsing fever. There is evidence that Borrelia lipoproteins are specifically targeted to the bacterial surface, but that they can be retained in the periplasm by sequence-specific signals.

Storage Condition

Store vial at -20 °C or below prior to opening. This vial contains a relatively low volume of reagent (25 µL). To minimize loss of volume dilute 1:10 by adding 225 µL of the buffer stated above directly to the vial. Recap, mix thoroughly and briefly centrifuge to collect the volume at the bottom of the vial. Use this intermediate dilution when calculating final dilutions as recommended below. Store the vial at -20°C or below after dilution. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing.

Application Note

Anti-Surface Lipoprotein p27 antibody has been tested in Western Blot. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band at ~30.9 kDa in size corresponding to p27 by Western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.


This product was Protein-A purified and cross-adsorbed against MBP from monospecific antiserum by chromatography. It is directed against, and shows specific reactivity for, Borrelia burgdorferi p27 protein. Reactivity with p27 protein from other sources has not been determined.
