  • a The frequency and reactivity of the 23 most frequent C. pneumoniae Ags was analyzed with respect to the C. pneumoniae-DNA status of the donors. Frequency indicates the number of reacting sera and reactivity was calculated as the sum of intensity classes (0–7) for each of the two donor groups (PCR+/PCR), respectively, and given in percent of the maximal reachable value.

  • b (↑) and (↓) indicate higher and lower reactivity with sera from PCR+ donors, respectively.

  • c Cpaf-c represents the C-terminal part of the full-length protein.

  • d MOMP4.9 represents one of the two identified MOMP isoforms (pI 4.9, pI 6.2).

  • e Pmp21-m represents the middle part of the full-length protein.
