  • Bordetella bronchiseptica expresses the fimbrial structural subunit gene fimA JOURNAL OF BACTERIOLOGY BOSCHWITZ, J. S., VANDERHEIDE, H. G., Mooi, F. R., Relman, D. A. 1997; 179 (24): 7882-7885


    The differential host species specificities of Bordetella pertussis, B. parapertussis, and B. bronchiseptica might be explained by polymorphisms in adherence factor genes. We have found that B. parapertussis and B. bronchiseptica, unlike B. pertussis, contain a full-length gene for the fimbrial subunit FimA. B. bronchiseptica expresses fimA in a BvgAS-dependent fashion.
