Abstract:
A fusion protein which comprises the B subunit of the labile toxin (LT-B) of E. coli and part of the flagellin (flaA) protein of C. jejuni is antigenic and is useful for decreasing colonization in chickens by Campylobacter species. The protein is produced by E. coli cells, transformed by the plasmid pBEB into which DNA sequences encoding the novel protein have been introduced.
