Babesia bigemina: identification of B cell epitopes associated with parasitized erythrocytes.

Abstract

Rhoptries are involved in host cell invasion and rhoptry polypeptides, including the Babesia bigemina rhoptry-associated protein-1 (RAP-1), are targets for protective immune responses. Polyclonal antisera produced against isolated rhoptries is directed predominantly against RAP-1 and reacts with both the merozoite and the membrane of parasitized… (More)
