    Abstract
    The incidence of syphilis has increased alarmingly over the years. Its diagnosis continues to be a challenge, leading to the search for new alternative and effective methods. The objective of this study was to select and evaluate three Treponema pallidum recombinant proteins for potential use in syphilis serodiagnosis. Bioinformatics analysis was performed with three T. pallidum antigens to assess their physical, antigenic, and structural characteristics. The antigens were chemically synthesized, recombinant plasmids were expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 Star™ , and the...
