Neospora hughesi is a newly recognised parasite that is closely related to Neospora caninum, and is a cause of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis. We have characterised two N. hughesi immunodominant tachyzoite antigens which exhibit antigenic and molecular differences from the homologous tachyzoite antigens on N. caninum. These antigens on N. hughesi are referred to as NhSAG1 and NhSRS2, using the same mnemonics as used for the N. caninum antigens (NcSAG1 and NcSRS2), and are homologous to… CONTINUE READING
