A genetic system for surface display of heterologous proteins has been developed in Streptococcus gordonii, a gram-positive human oral commensal that is naturally competent for genetic transformation. Our approach is based on chromosomal integration downstream from a resident promoter and translational fusion to an M6 protein. Using this strategy a variety of proteins, of different origin and size, were displayed on the cell surface and were shown to be stably expressed both in vitro and in vivo. Animal models of mucosal colonization (oral and vaginal) and intragastric immunization with recombinant S. gordonii were developed and the local and systemic immune responses were studied. Here we report the techniques for the construction of recombinant bacteria, use of animal models, and analysis of the immune response.
