Abstract

The antigenicity of purified flagellin prepared from the single polar flagellum of Vibrio parahaemolyticus was found to be common to that of all strains tested, i.e., V. alginolyticus, V. cholerae, V. anguillarum, V. piscium, V. ichthyodermis, Beneckea natriegens, B. campbellii, B. nereida, B. pelagia, and B. neptuna. On the other hand, the antigenicity of purified flagellin prepared from the lateral flagella of V. parahaemolyticus was common to that of V. alginolyticus but not to that of B. campbellii or B. neptuna. Some physicochemical properties of flagellin from the single polar flagellum of V. parahaemolyticus were found to be similar to those of flagellins from other strains, such as those of V. anguillarum and B. neptuna.
