Syphilis TpN17

The causative agent of Syphilis is a bacterium: Treponema pallidum. The immune responses to T. pallidum are primarily mediated by the following membrane lipoproteins: TpN47, TpN17, TpN15 and TmpA. TpN47 is highly immunogenic and activates endothelial cells, while TpN17 and TpN15 induce antibody responses.

In independent studies, TmpA is the most frequently identified antigen (95%) while the remaining are recognised with the following prevalence: TpN47, 92.5%; TpN17, 89.5%; and TpN15, 67.5%.
