Apolipoprotein E, a main apoprotein of the chylomicron, binds to a specific receptor on liver cells and peripheral cells. ApoE is essential for the normal catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein constituents. The APOE gene is mapped to chromosome 19 in a cluster with APOC1 and APOC2. Abstract. Treponema pallidum, the bacterial agent of syphilis, cannot be cultivated in constraint has severely impeded the study of the membrane biology of this complex human pathogen. A structure-to-function approach thus was adopted as a means of discerning the likely function of Tp, a kDa cytoplasmic membrane-associated lipoprotein of T. pallidum formerly designated as TmpC.

SUMMARY Syphilis is a chronic disease with a waxing and waning course, the manifestations of which have been described for centuries. It occurs worldwide, and the incidence varies significantly with geographic location. Transmission is mainly by sexual contact. The causative organism, Treponema pallidum, was first described in , but because of the inability to culture the organism and the.

Cutaneous immunobiology and spirochetal molecular biology have allowed investigators to propose a conceptual framework for the development of both the innate and adaptive immune response to Treponema pallidum infection.

The spirochaete Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum, the causative agent of the venereal disease syphilis, has been the subject of extensive studies ever since its discovery over eighty years study of this pathogen has been hampered by inability to cultivate the pathogenic treponemes in last decade a number of investigators have used modern molecular biology.

Syphilis, caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum, is a chronic sexually transmitted disease which infects 12 million people ema pallidum is highly invasive and undergoes widespread dissemination via the circulatory system.

Similar to other invasive pathogens, T. pallidum has been shown to express a host-component-degrading protease, pallilysin, that binds and degrades human. mature lipoprotein of 17 kDa of the spirochete Treponema pallidum.

1. Introduction. The genus Treponema (Krieg et al., ) comprises several human pathogens that cause chronic infections including several species of oral treponemes (e.g. denticola, T. parvum, and T.

putidum;Visser and Ellen, ).Another member of the genus Treponema, Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum (TPA) is the causative agent of the sexually transmitted disease. BACKGROUND: Although syphilis rates have been relatively high in Italy for more than 15 years, no data on the molecular types of Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum circulating in this country.

LIPA: Lipoprotein (a) (Lp[a]) consists of an LDL particle that is covalently bound to an additional protein, apolipoprotein (a) (Apo[a]). Apo(a) has high-sequence homology with the coagulation factor plasminogen and, like LDL, Lp(a) contains apolipoprotein B (ApoB).

Thus, Lp(a) is both proatherogenic and prothrombotic. Lp(a) is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD. kDa LIPOPROTEIN OF T. PALLIDUM gation, washedtwice in M9labeling medium,and suspended to the original volume in labeling medium.

Its lack of surface antigenicity is thought to contribute to the ability of the pathogen to evade the human immune system. Lipoprotein analysis is also essential in monitoring the effectiveness of cholesterol‐lowering therapy. The focus of this chapter will be on methods for lipoprotein analysis that are used for routine diagnostic purposes, but in addition, new promising types of lipoprotein analysis that are still in the realm of basic research will also be.

This chapter reports on three pathogenic spirochetes: Treponema pallidum, causative agent of syphilis, and other treponemes; Borrelia burgdorferi, causative agent of Lyme disease, and related species; and Leptospira species, responsible for leptospirosis.

The spirochetes are quite different from many of the other well-studied pathogens that are principally found in the proteobacteria and gram. Yaws is an infectious disease caused by Treponema pallidum pertenue—a bacterium that closely resembles the causative agent of syphilis—and is spread by skin-to-skin contact in humid tropical regions.

Yaws causes disfiguring, and sometimes painful lesions of the skin and bones. As with syphilis, clinical manifestations can be divided into three stages; however, unlike syphilis, mother-to. Therefore, genetic analysis could be useful in the differential diagnosis of Treponema species and subspecies.
