Cathepsin L1, a cysteine protease secreted by the gastrodermis of juvenile and adult Fasciola hepatica, was expressed in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein containing the proregion, supplied with six histidyl residues at the N-terminal end (rproCL1). In this study we tested its potential as antigen for the serologic diagnosis of F. hepatica infections by(More)
Though it is clear that genomic variability plays an integral role in accounting for pain sensitivity, controversy exists over which genes are involved. While recent data suggest a "protective" (i.e., less pain) haplotype in the GTP cyclohydrolase (GCH1) gene, other research has failed to confirm this association. Possibly, the effects of single nucleotide(More)
