Outer‐membrane blebs from two serum‐susceptible and two serum‐resistant strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae were characterized. In general, bleb surfaces resembled cell surfaces, but there were qualitative and quantitative protein differences in blebs released by serum‐susceptible and serum‐resistant strains. Relative to blebs from serum‐resistant strains, blebs from serum‐susceptible strains expressed reduced amounts of major outer‐membrane proteins I and III, and little if any 68 000 Dalton outer‐membrane protein.
