IFM adhesion assay of M. pneumoniae (A-E). The M. pneumoniae attached to the HEp-2 cells were detected by either anti-M. pneumoniae antibody or antibodies rose in rabbits. The detecting antibodies were added after fixation with methanol. (A) anti-M. pneumoniae antibody (positive control), (B) Pab (rP1-I), (C) Pab (rP1-II), (D) Pab (rP1-III), (E) Pab (rP1-IV). IFM surface exposure assay of M. pneumoniae (F-J). In this assay the detecting antibodies were added before the methanol fixation. (F) anti-M. pneumoniae antibody (positive control), (G) Pab (rP1-I), (H) Pab (rP1-II), (I) Pab (rP1-III), (J) Pab (rP1-IV). Negative controls: (K) mycoplasmas alone (Without Pabs), (L) Pabs alone (Without mycoplasmas). Bar, 2 μm.
