Immunogenicity of recombinant Bacillus subtilis spores expressing Clonorchis sinensis tegumental protein

Abstract

Clonorchis sinensis, which causes clonorchiasis, is of major socioeconomic importance in China. In this study, we report the use of CotC, a major component of the Bacillus subtilis spore coat, as a fusion partner for the expression of C. sinensis TP20.8 (Tegumental Protein 20.8kDa) on the spore coat. Western blotting was used to identify TP20.8 surface… (More)
