The use of recombinant DNA methods to produce schistosome antigens in order to assess their immunodiagnostic potential: Schistosoma mansoni tropomyosin an example


Immunodiagnostic approaches in schistosomiasis Proceedings of ICGEB/TDR Symposium, Shanghai, 1990: 125-132
The use of recombinant DNA methods to produce schistosome antigens in order to assess their immunodiagnostic potential: Schistosoma mansoni tropomyosin an example
It was shown that the recombinant S. mansoni tropomyosin shows species specificity in a limited series of samples tested in both ELISA and Western blot analysis. It did not cross react with sera from S. haematobium or S. japonicum or other parasitic diseases. This finding suggests that S. mansoni tropomyosin warrants further study into its potential for immunodiagnosis.
