Identification of stage-specifically expressed genes of Trichinella spiralis by suppression subtractive hybridization.

SUMMARYNewborn larvae (NBL) and adult (Ad) stage-specifically expressed genes or members of gene families of Trichinella spiralis were identified by suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH). Six cDNA clones were identified as NBL stage-specific, including 1 member of the T. spiralis gene family encoding glutamic acid-rich proteins, 2 clones encoding… (More)
