MeSH headings : Animals; Dogs; Antibodies, Bacterial; Antigens, Bacterial; Bacterial Outer Membrane Proteins / genetics; Borrelia burgdorferi; Epitopes; Horses; Immune Sera; Ixodes / microbiology; Lipoproteins / genetics; Lyme Disease / microbiology; Vaccines, Combined; Vaccines, Subunit / genetics
TL;DR: It is suggested that FtlA and FtlB are potential candidates for inclusion in a multivalent vaccine for LD, and epitope localization revealed that the bactericidal epitopes reside within the N-terminal domain of the Ftl proteins. (via Semantic Scholar)

Lyme disease (LD) is a tick-transmitted bacterial infection caused by Borreliella burgdorferi and other closely related species collectively referred to as the LD spirochetes. The LD spirochetes encode an uncharacterized family of proteins originally designated p rotein f amily t welve (PF12).
