Filarial surface antigens: the major 29 kilodalton glycoprotein and a novel 17-200 kilodalton complex from adult Brugia malayi parasites.

Abstract

Adult Brugia malayi nematode parasites possess a range of cuticular and epicuticular molecules which may be defined by various surface-labelling techniques. We present here evidence that at least two distinct antigens are associated with the surface, a glycoprotein of 29 kDa, and a complex of twelve components forming a regular series or 'ladder' between 17… (More)
