|Abstract: ||The four dominant outer membrane proteins (46, 38, 33 and 28 kDa) were
detected by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis
(SDS-PAGE) in a semi-purified preparation of vesicle membranes of a
Neisseria meningitidis (N44/89, B:4:P1.15:P5.5,7) strain isolated in
Brazil. The N-terminal amino acid sequence for the 46 kDa and 28 kDa
proteins matched that reported by others for class 1 and 5 proteins
respectively, whereas the sequence (25 amino acids) for the 38 kDa
(class 3) protein was similar to class 1 meningococcal proteins. The
sequence for the 33 kDa (class 4) was unique and not homologous to any
