Characterization of Flagella Produced by Clinical Strains of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia
Figure 5. Identification of the 38-kDa flagellin protein SMFliC in clinical isolates of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. Lane 1, SMDP14; lane 2, SMDP275; lane 3, SMHC176; lane 4, SMHC181; lane 5, SMDP315; lane 6, SMDP314; and lane 7, SMHC179. Lane 8, the purified SMFliC, was used as positive control. The immunoblot shows the presence of the 38-kDa flagellin protein in all the isolates. Doublet bands were seen in some of the isolates. Molecular weight standards and the 38-kDa flagellin protein are indicated by arrows.
