Antibodies to a range of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli heat shock proteins in sera from patients with S. aureus endocarditis

Abstract

Antibodies to a range of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli heat shock proteins were present in sera from patients with S. aureus endocarditis. This suggests the highly immunoreactive nature of a range of heat shock proteins in addition to the GroEL equivalent (common antigen) protein. In one case, antibodies to three proteins unique to the infecting S. aureus strain, which were more prominent in heat-shocked cells, were also detected. The heat shock response in various pathogenic bacteria, including Borrelia burgdorferi (5), Chlamydia trachomatis (6), Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium lepra
