Molecular expression cloning techniques have revealed that patients with chronic Chagas' heart disease (cChHD) present a strong humoral response against the cloned C-terminal portions of the four Trypanosoma cruzi ribosomal P proteins TcP1, TcP2 alpha (TcP2b), TcP2 beta (TcPJL5), and TcP0. This protein family presents several features that may be important… CONTINUE READING
