The major surface glycoprotein of Leishmania gp63, a fibronectin-like molecule, plays a key role in parasite-macrophage interaction. In this article, we describe a cross-reactivity between an anti-fibronectin monoclonal antibody and the amastigote gp63 by means of immunoelectron microscopy and immunoblot. Immunoreactivity was found on the amastigote… CONTINUE READING
