Abstract

A novel gene encoding an antigen from Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from an expression library by screening with antisera from patients with deep Staphylococcus aureus infections. In one positive clone an open reading frame, named ORF-2, was identified. Recombinant ORF-2 protein reacted with human immune serum. ORF-2 was shown to be present in other Staphylococcus aureus strains, but not in related species.
