A plasmid encoding the enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli K88 fimbrial protein FaeG when injected into chickens stimulates the production of antibodies against the fimbrial protein, similar to what has been observed in mice. The efficacy of a genetic adjuvant on fimbrial antibody production was tested by introducing the gene for...
