When nucleic acid samples purified from sporozoites of Eimeria stiedae were analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis, an ethidium-stainable band with an apparent electrophoretic mobility of 6.5 kb was consistently observed. The band was readily degradable upon RNAse treatment, and its susceptibility towards ribonuclease A on a decreasing ionic strength was(More)
We have characterized by molecular cloning and sequencing a Plasmodium chabaudi antigen that is associated with the membrane of the infected erythrocyte throughout the entire intraerythrocytic cycle. The protein (PcEMA1) has a predicted size of 50 kDa and contains a major tandem repeat array of 16 octapeptides that constitutes almost 30% of the protein. At(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of the gene encoding the precursor to the major merozoite surface antigens of Plasmodium chabaudi chabaudi strain IP-PC1 has been determined. A single open reading frame was detected, that coded for a protein of 199 kDa. The encoded protein (p199) contains putative signal and membrane anchor sequences and shows a clustering(More)
We identify phosphoproteins that are associated to the infected erythrocyte membrane of Plasmodium chabaudi. The specific antibodies that recognize the erythrocyte membrane-associated antigens, namely PcEMA1 and PcLEMA, are studied. According to sequencing analysis, neither the gene structure nor the predicted properties of these two antigens are completely(More)
