Abstract

A genomic expression library of Streptococcus pneumoniae was screened with a convalescent-phase serum for immunoreactive proteins. Six known and 17 unknown pneumococcal proteins were detected. Five of the known proteins were surface-located virulence factors, and eight of the unknown proteins were putative membrane proteins.
