Expression of Recombinant Fatty Acid Binding Protein from Fasciola gigantica


Fatty acid binding protein (FADP) is an attractive vaccine candidate and a drug target for controlling fasciolosis caused by Fasciola gigantica in ruminants. The cDNA encoding F. gigantica FADP was amplified by polymerase chain reaction and expressed in Escherichia coli as a recombinant protein using a prokaryotic expression system. The protein was purified… (More)
