The materials released in vitro by the tissue-parasitic larval stages of the large roundworm of man, Ascaris lumbricoides, were analysed by radio-iodination, immunoprecipitation, and SDS-PAGE. The antigens were found to be heterogeneous, ranging in molecular weight from 14 to 410 kD, and were found to alter radically during the parasites' migration to the lungs. The antigens secreted by the infective and lung-stage larvae of the pig homologue, Ascaris suum, were compared with those of the human… CONTINUE READING
