Abstract

Administration of Prophylactic vaccines still is the cutting-edge of prevention, control and elimination of infections. Among the common causes of sexually transmitted diseases, chlamydia trachomatis is an important socioeconomic burden worldwide which impairs human genital tract function, resulting in severe complications like urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), getting ease of HIV transmission, playing cofactor role in human papilloma virus (HPV)- induced cervical neoplasia, and unfortunately infertility. Because of all difficulties, vaccination is considered to be the most economical and reliable way to escape from unrestrained exacerbation states of infection than any other prevalence program. But despite much advancement in the field of veterinary, the dream has yet to be realized. Among a number of potential candidates, the major outer membrane protein (MOMP) is a vanguard of subunit vaccines. In this attempt, MOMP217 gene fragment cloned in PET28b+ and expressed in E.coli. The protein expression confirmed by SDS-PAGE. These findings demonstrate that, considering the antigenicity prediction and due to the existence of potential epitopic region, rMOMP217 could be a potential capable peptide which can represent as an alternative to whole MOMP.
