Bm95 is an antigen isolated from Boophilus microplus strains with low susceptibility to antibodies developed in cattle vaccinated with the recombinant Bm86 antigen (Gavac, HeberBiotec S.A., Cuba). It is a Bm86-like surface protein, which by similarity contains seven EGF-like domains and a lipid-binding GPI-anchor site at the C-terminal region. The primary(More)
Sticholysin I (St-I) and sticholysin II (St-II) are cytolysins purified from the sea anemone Stichodactyla helianthus with a high degree of sequence identity (93%) but clearly differenced in their hemolytic activity. In order to go further into the structural determinants for the different behavior of St-I and St-II, we report here the complete amino acid(More)
The new antigen Bm95 from the cattle tick Boophilus microplus was recently isolated, cloned and expressed in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris. The recombinant protein has shown to induce protection in cattle against infestations of B. microplus under controlled and production conditions. In this paper we report the production and large-scale(More)
