Eleven serotype A encapsulated and nonencapsulated strains of Pasteurella multocida were examined with regard to lipoprotein content. Relative amounts of an approximately 40-kDa lipoprotein (P1p-40) were found to correlate directly with the degree of encapsulation in that heavily encapsulated strains exhibited the greatest amounts, while nonencapsulated strains possessed little or no Pip-40.
