Study on immunological activity of aspergillus flavus link ii. immunogenicity and antigenicity evaluation of cross immunoreactivity of antibodies to aspergillus flavus with antigens of aspergillus fumigatus and aspergillus candidus



Study on immunological activity of aspergillus flavus link ii. immunogenicity and antigenicity evaluation of cross immunoreactivity of antibodies to aspergillus flavus with antigens of aspergillus fumigatus and aspergillus candidus



Medycyna Doswiadczalna i Mikrobiologia 42(3-4): 149-155



The aim of this study was to determine immunogenic and antigenic properties of tested strain. Chemically characterized AEM amd APP antigens were used for immunization of laboratory animals. Immunogenic, antigenic and multideterminant character of tested preparations was shown by immunodifussion technique. It was found that AEM and its two fractions AS and API share common immunodeterminant that requires additional studies on their further separation. Using techniques described in this study no antigenic relationship was found between tested Aspergillus flavus strain and antigens derived from A. fumigatus and A. candidus. Multideterminant character of AEM and APP was confirmed by rockett immunoelectrophoresis, defining 6 different immunodeterminants for APP and 9-10 determinants for AEM, showing by the method used as separate precipitation arcs. In this study a fused rocket immunoelectrophoresis was highly appreciated as an useful technique for investigation of fungal antigens. The results obtained require further confirmation by testing human sera. They indicate that it would be useful to apply other antigens than derived from A. fumigatus and A. candidus for clinical diagnosis of aspergillosis and related diseases.
