Abstract: 

Various cell wall fractions of Pasteurella multocida vaccine strain serotype A.1 including sonicated antigen heat stable (HS) lipopolysaccharide - protein complex (LPS - P ) outermenbrane protein (OMP) capsular (CAP) and potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) - extracted proteins were extracted their immunogenecity was studied and compared with inactivated whole cell vaccine in vitro and in vivo. The protein estimation and the polypeptide pattern of these antigens were also compared by Lowery and SDS-PAGE methods. In general the immunological responses to these fractions were varied. The chickens immunized with KSCN - extract antigen and OMP showed the highest protection when they were challenged with homologous strain. While HS and LPS antigens showed the lowest protection. These findings are in correspondence with the end - point titer of antibodies using ELISA cross - reaction was also observed by agar gel diffusion test between the fractions and raised antisera in chickens especially with KSCN - extract OMP and CAP antigens the results suggest that both OMP and KSCN - extract protein as more effective immunogens could be good candidates for development of a subunit vaccine substitute for current whole cell formalized vaccine against fowl cholera infection.
