CD4+ T-helper lymphocyte responses against Babesia bigemina rhoptry-associated protein I.

Abstract

A multigene family of 58- to 60-kDa proteins, which are designated rhoptry-associated protein 1 (RAP-1) and which come from the parasites Babesia bigemina and Babesia bovis, is a target for vaccine development. The presence of multiple gene copies and conserved sequences and epitopes of RAP-1 implies that these proteins are functionally important for the… (More)
