Schistosoma mansoni soluble egg antigen (SEA) has been examined electrophoretically. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) electrophoresis of SEA reveals an extremely heterogeneous protein composition. At least 18-20 distinct bands stain with Coomassie blue and at least 6 bands stain with periodic acid Schiff (PAS). Four of the PAS-positive bands stain only faintly with Coomassie blue. The estimated molecular weight range for these proteins is between 16,000 and 200,000 daltons. An acid soluble fraction… CONTINUE READING
