Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B (strain MC58) pan proteome (fasta)

Gram-negative meningococcal bacterium. Neisseria meningitidis colonizes the mucosal surface of the human nose and throat, usually as a commensal bacterium. Up to 15% of the human population are asymptomatic carriers. Sometimes the strains can invade the host, causing life-threatening invasive bacterial infections especially in young infants. They do so by gaining access to the blood and to the cerebrospinal fluid to cause meningitis and septicemia. Thus it is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The pattern of serogroup B disease is typically hyperendemic or sporadic. Strains of this serogroup are a particular problem because they are a major cause of invasive disease in Europe and United States and there is currently no effective vaccine.
