Trypanosoma equiperdum and Trypanosoma evansi were purified by three or four cycles of low-speed centrifugation and final filtration through DEAE cellulose. The purified trypanosomes were used in comparative biochemical and immunological studies. Comparative polypeptide pattern analysis revealed that T. equiperdum showed 21 polypeptide bands, whose M r ranged from >200 to 14.8 kDa. T. evansi showed 25 polypeptide bands in the M r range 97–14.8 kDa. The main differences were associated with the… CONTINUE READING
