Caveolins and flotillin-2 are present in the blood stages of Plasmodium vivax
Blood stages of Plasmodium vivax induce the development of caveolae and caveola–vesicle complexes (CVC) in the membrane of their host erythrocyte. Caveolae are found in almost all types of cells andExpand

Plasmodium vivax: detection of blood parasites using fluorochrome labelled monoclonal antibodies
A monoclonal antibody (MoAb) 2C6111 specific for Plasmodium vivax erythrocytic stages was shown to detect parasitized erythrocytes in blood samples collected in the field. This MoAb binds to theExpand

Linker for activation of T cells is displaced from lipid rafts and decreases in lupus T cells after activation via the TCR/CD3 pathway.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is characterized by abnormal signal transduction mechanisms in T lymphocytes. Linker for activation of T cells (LAT) couples TCR/CD3 activation with downstreamExpand

Sensitive detection of Plasmodium vivax in blood by a cell-ELISA using a monoclonal antibody.
An IgM monoclonal antibody (7C5B71) which reacted with the blood stages of Plasmodium vivax, but not with those of Plasmodium falciparum was used in a cell-ELISA to detect parasites in samples ofExpand

Traffic pathways of Plasmodium vivax antigens during intraerythrocytic parasite development
Abstract. We investigated the secretory traffic of a Plasmodium vivax antigen (Pv-148) synthesised by the parasite during the blood cycle, exported into the host cell cytosol and then transported toExpand

Plasmodium vivax and P. chabaudi: inter-species cross-reacting antigens
Abstract A monoclonal antibody raised by immunization of BALB/c mice with erythrocytic stages of Plasmodium vivax was shown to react with asexual erythrocytic stages of P. chabaudi. TheExpand
