Abstract

Continuous epitope sequences were selected from immunogenic Bb proteins by epitope mapping. The identified epitope sequences were synthesized by solid phase peptide synthesis and purified by high performance liquid chromatography. Each epitope was conjugated individually to a multifunctional poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) carrier. The result PEG-peptide conjugates were used as antigens in ELISA for diagnosis of
Lyme disease. The results showed that the defined epitope peptides were
Lyme disease specific and could be used in a format of PEG-peptide conjugate as the antigen to achieve improved sensitivity and specificity.
