Bison, caribou, wolves, dolphins) and people. Currently, there are no vaccines for human use to protect against brucellosis. g. veterinarians, abattoir workers) with an attenuated vaccine strain, B. abortus S19, but this appears to be attenuated for cattle and can be pathogenic or cause brucellosis in humans. There was a French vaccine (PI, or phenol insoluble) that removed the toxic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) component with phenol, but the phenol insoluble residue gave a high rate of reactogenicity (at least 53%) and led to hyper-sensitivity (vaccinates exposed to Brucella antigens were susceptible to anaphylactic shock).

The bacterial genes encoding virulence mechanisms required for specific interactions between Brucella and the macrophage remain largely undiscovered. We have identified a genetic locus of B. abortus, virB, that is required for establishing infection both in macrophages and In the mouse model. The B. abortus virB locus is predicted by sequence homology to encode a type IV secretion system. Our long- range goal is to elucidate the mechanism by which the virB locus mediates intracellular survival and persistent infection.

The B. abortus virB locus is predicted by sequence homology to encode a type IV secretion system. Our long- range goal is to elucidate the mechanism by which the virB locus mediates intracellular survival and persistent infection. The objective of this application is to study the expression of the virB genes and compare the interaction of wild type B. abortus and virB mutants with regard to vacuolar trafficking in the macrophage. The central hypothesis of this application is that the virB locus mediates a critical interaction with the macrophage that allows B.
