Frequency and Rate of Pilin Antigenic Variation of Neisseria meningitidis▿

By R. Allen Helm and H. Steven Seifert

Abstract

The rates of pilin antigenic variation (Av) of two strains of Neisseria meningitidis were determined using an unbiased DNA sequencing assay. Strain MC58 underwent pilin Av at a rate similar to that of N. gonorrhoeae strain MS11 but lower than that of N. gonorrhoeae strain FA1090. Pilin Av was undetectable in strain FAM18
