Haemophilus parainfluenzae synthesizes an outer membrane protein adhesin which mediates binding to oral streptococci, salivary pellicle, and neuraminidase-treated erythrocytes. An indirect gold labeling technique and immunoelectron microscopy verified the location of this outer membrane protein. Further, a clustering of gold particles was observed in irregular patches at the cell surface.
