    Heat shock protein (hsp) is highly conserved, that serves a wide range of function in protein folding and transport. It protect front various type of stress including heat shocks. However, it is well known that the virulence of B. melitensis is more than B. abortus, but there is not any strong...

    The lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is considered the major virulent factor in Brucella spp. Several genes have been identified involved in the synthesis of the three LPS components: lipid A, core and O-PS. Usually, Brucella strains devoid of O-PS (rough mutants) are less virulent than the wild type...

    Although host specificity has been observed in different species of Brucella, crossing the animal host boundary is likely to occur at any time. In this study, Bruce ladder PCR and abortus- melitensis- ovis- suis (AMOS) PCR assays were used to characterize 47 Brucella isolates from Indian origin...
