Proteome IDiUP000001226
Taxonomy537457 - Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 7 (strain AP76)
Last modifiedFebruary 27, 2018
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000020405.1 from ENA/EMBL
Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serotype 5b (strain L20) pan proteome (fasta)

Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, a Gram-negative, non-motile, facultatively anaerobic Pasteurellaceae, causes porcine pleuropneumonia, a highly contagious disease for which there is no effective vaccine. There are least twelve different serotypes, some of which produce no disease but others cause severe disease. Serotypes vary in different countries. Types 1, 5, 9, 11 and 12 are usually highly virulent and strains 3 and 6 are mild. The bacterium is carried in the tonsils and upper respiratory tract. It is transmitted short distances by droplet infection and only survives outside the pig for a few days.

Strain AP76 was isolated from a diseased pig lung in Canada. It is serotype 7 and is a strain in which spontaneous chromosomal deletions have been shown to occur. It encodes insertion elements that have been shown to interfere with detection of infected vs. vaccinated animals as it inserts into serological antigens used to detect infection.
