The antigenicity of the major outer membrane protein of Chlamydia trachomatis serovar C was assessed by using overlapping hexapeptide homologs of serovar C major outer membrane protein and rabbit antisera in a peptide enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Five immunogenic sites were found distributed within variable sequences of the protein; four were immunodominant and three were surface exposed on native elementary bodies of serovar C. None was surface exposed on serovars H, I, and J.
