Human immune serum recognition of outer membrane components from commensal and pathogenic Neisseria cultured under neutral and acidic conditions was investigated. Acid stress caused no detectable alterations in lipooligosaccharide migration and (or) staining, in outer membrane protein profiles, or in immune serum recognition of outer membrane components from Neisseria mucosa or Neisseria sicca. There was also no difference in the lipoologosaccharide electrophoretic pattern of acid- and neutral-grown Neisseria lactamica, but there were differences in outer membrane protein expression. The outer membrane protein alterations induced by acid stress in N. lactamica were not the same as those seen in isolates from patients with uncomplicated gonococcal infection, pelvic inflammatory disease, and disseminated gonococcal infection. Many differences were detected in the immune serum recognition of outer membrane components from acid- and neutral-cultured N. lactamica and from the clinical isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and these should be considered in vaccine design.
