    Background: Survival of the human pathogen, Neisseria meningitidis, requires an effective response to oxidative stress resulting from the release of hydrogen peroxide by cells of the human immune system. In N. meningitidis, expression of catalase, which is responsible for detoxifying hydrogen...

    P64k is a minor outer membrane protein from Neisseria meningitidis. This protein has been produced at high levels in Escherichia coli. We generated a group of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against recombinant P64k, which recognise four non-overlapping epitopes, as shown using competition assays...
