A recombinant thioredoxin-glutathione reductase from Fasciola hepatica induces a protective response in rabbits.

Abstract

Antioxidant systems are fundamental components of host-parasite interactions, and often play a key role in parasite survival. Here, we report the cloning, heterologous expression, and characterization of a thioredoxin glutathione reductase (TGR) from Fasciola hepatica. The deduced polypeptide sequence of the cloned open reading frame (ORF) confirmed the… (More)
