Haemonchus contortus: cloning and characterization of serpin.


The serpin gene of Haemonchus contortus (hc-serpin) was cloned and characterized in this study. Specific primers for rapid amplification cDNA ends (RACE) were designed based on the expression sequence tag (EST, BM173953) to amplify the 3'- and 5'-ends of hc-serpin. The full length of the cDNA of this gene was obtained by overlapping the sequences of 3'- and… (More)
