Annexin-like alpha giardins: a new cytoskeletal gene family in Giardia lamblia.


Through a genome survey and phylogenetic analysis, we have identified and sequenced 14 new coding regions for alpha-giardins in Giardia lamblia. These proteins are related to annexins and comprise a multi-gene family with 21 members. Many alpha giardins are highly expressed proteins that are very immunogenic during acute giardiasis in humans. However… (More)
