  • Relevance
    Treponema pallidum is a gram-negative spirochaete bacterium and is considered to be metabolically crippled. There is no vaccine for syphilis. The outer membrane of T. pallidum has too few surface proteins for an antibody to be effective. Efforts to develop a safe and effective syphilis vaccine have been hindered by uncertainty about the relative importance of humoral and cellular mechanisms to protective immunity and the fact that T. pallidum outer membrane proteins have not been unambiguously identified.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell Membrane
