SUMMARY

Administration of an N-lauroylsarcosine-derived outer membrane protein fraction of Pasteurella haemolytica A1 (sci-1) induced a protective response in calves against intrathoracic challenge exposure with the homologous serovar. Outer membrane proteins from heterologous serovars, A6 and A9, induced partial protection that was associated with their respective similarities to serovar A1 in outer membrane protein profiles derived by use of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Calves vaccinated with sci preparations did not have detectable neutralizing antibody to P haemolytica A1 leukotoxin. Antibodies to whole-cell antigens, carbohydrate-protein subunit antigen, and sci-1 were associated with resistance, which indicates that protein antigens shared among cell surface, carbohydrate-protein subunit, and sci preparations are immunogenic and enhance resistance to experimental challenge exposure.
