A Naturally Occurring Novel Allele of Escherichia coli Outer Membrane Protein A Reduces Sensitivity to Bacteriophage
A novel Escherichia coli outer membrane protein A (OmpA) was discovered through a proteomic investigation of cell surface proteins. DNA polymorphisms were localized to regions encoding the protein's surface-exposed loops which are known phage receptor sites. Bacteriophage sensitivity testing indicated an association between bacteriophage resistance and isolates having the novel ompA allele.
