Abstract: The study of enzymatic and protective properties of recombinant IgA1 protease in active and mutant form showed that active form of IgA1 protease exhibited species – and type-specificity for mouse and human immunoglobulins. Mutant form, which did not exhibit enzymatic activity, had protective properties against meningococcal infection, induced by meningococcus serogroup A, B and C protecting the mice from lethal infection by living virulent culture of heterologous serogroups of meningococcus. Obtained results make it possible to consider IgA1 protease as a perspective preparation at the stages of development of polyvalent vaccine for protection the people from meningococcal infection of various etiology
