Protease activity and host cell binding of the 42-kDa rhoptry protein from Toxoplasma gondii after secretion.
Three proteases were identified in the excretory/secretory proteins (ESP) from Toxoplasma gondii by the gelatin acrylamide gel electrophoresis (GAGE), of which the molecular masses were 80, 70, andExpand

Detection and characterization of excretory/secretory proteins from Toxoplasma gondii by monoclonal antibodies.
Excretory/secretory proteins (ESP) from Toxoplasma gondii were analyzed to define the function in the penetration process into host cells. Whole ESP obtained at 37 degrees C were composed of 15 bandsExpand
