[Cross-reacting antigens of pathogenic Burkholderia and some dangerous causative agents of infectious diseases].

Cross-reacting antigens in B. mallei, B. pseudomallei, B. thailandensis, Francisella tularensis, Yersinia pestis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis were studied with the use of immuno- and electrophoretic techniques. The set of antigens was shown to be almost identical in the causative agents of glanders, melioidosis, as well as in B. thailandensis, though in the latter organism 200-kD glycoprotein was absent. The analysis of immuno- and proteinograms demonstrated the presence of cross-reactions in the representatives of the genus Burkholderia with the causative agents of plague, tularemia and tuberculosis, which served as the basis for making the scheme of their antigenic relationships. The use of immunosorption techniques with subsequent analysis of the preparations by means of the SDS polyacryl gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting made it possible to characterize cross-reacting antigens of the pathogenic microorganisms under study, to establish their molecular weights (81-15 kD) and to show that some detected antigens are analogous to B. pseudomallei outer membrane proteins (34 and 30 kD).
