RelevanceOspB, is one of the major Outer Surface Proteins of the outer membrane
of Borrelia burgdorferi, which is composed of various unique outer surface
proteins (Osp) that have been characterized (OspA through OspF). The
osp proteins are lipoproteins anchored by N-terminally attached fatty acid
molecules to the membrane. They are presumed to play a role in
virulence, transmission, or survival in the tick. Two of the major surface
Ag of Borrelia burgdorferi, the 31-kDa OspA and 34-kDa OspB proteins,
show a high degree of sequence similarity, are encoded by a 49-kb
plasmid and share a common promoter, and are coordinately transcribed.
