Publisher Summary This chapter discusses about antigenic variation in Paramecium and contrasts this with the current understanding of the i-antigens of Ichthyophirius—a parasitic ciliate that represents a bridge between the free-living species and more distantly related parasitic protozoa. The similarities and differences among the i-antigens of these organisms are highlighted in the chapter that gives an insight about the role of major surface antigens in ciliates. Paramecium variable surface… CONTINUE READING
