LipL32 is a component of the leptospiral outer membrane and the most prominent protein in the leptospiral protein profile. It is also a very important immunogen during human leptospirosis. The sequence and expression of LipL32 is highly conserved among pathogenic Leptospira species. These findings indicate that LipL32 may be important in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and prevention of leptospirosis.
