Plasmodium falciparum polypeptides of 200 and 140 K mol wt exposed at the surface of merozoites and/or schizonts were purified by affinity chromatography and by electroelution from sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Monkeys were separated into three groups of four and immunized either with one of the two polypeptides or with saline(More)
The late blood stages of the human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, carry a major surface antigen, p190, of molecular weight (Mr) 190,000. This antigenically variable protein is actively processed, first as the parasite matures and again when it is released into the blood stream and invades a new erythrocyte to initiate a cycle of growth. It elicits(More)
