i A Abstract OBJECTIVES: Bordetella pertussis is the etiological agent of whooping cough, a bacterial infection of especially children, which may be fatal without treatment. In frame of studies to investigate putative effects of vaccination on host-pathogen interaction and clonal distribution of strains, in addition to Corynebacterium diphtheriae and Clostridium tetani toxoid vaccines, also whole-cell and acellular pertussis vaccines were analyzed by mass spectrometry. DATA DESCRIPTION: LC-MS/MS spectra were generated and analyzed using B. pertussis genome data and proteins present in whole-cell and acellular...
