The 39-kilodalton outer membrane protein of Proteus mirabilis is an OmpA protein and mitogen for murine B lymphocytes.

Partial amino acid sequence analysis of a major outer membrane protein of Proteus mirabilis (39-kDa protein) indicates that it is an OmpA protein. The mitogenic activities of the 39-kDa protein for murine lymphocytes were also investigated with T lymphocytes isolated by passing spleen cells over columns of nylon wool fiber and B lymphocytes obtained by treating spleen cells with monoclonal antibodies to Thy1 plus complement. The 39-kDa protein showed little activity in stimulating T cells to proliferate but was strongly mitogenic for B cells
