Abstract

OspC from Borrelia burgdorferi reisolated from mice persistently infected with cloned spirochetes was examined. In all cases, the sequence of the ospC gene was identical to that of the original inoculant. We conclude that variation of ospC is not necessary for evasion of the host immune system.
