Abstract

The research was performed for the immunological characterization of the 37.81 kDa common immunodominant surface protein of some Salmonella serovars in order to examine the potency of that particular protein in terms of immunity production as well as withstood challenge exposure against virulent homologous and heterologous organism. The protective efficacy study in chicks gave protective levels of 40-50% in the heterologous challenge experiments and 50-60% in the homologous virulent challenge experiments. Therefore, the 37.81 kDa surface protein might be useful at a certain level in control of salmonellosis in chicks.

Key words: Characterization, surface protein, Salmonella, chickens
