MIC1-MAG1-SAG1 chimeric protein, a most effective antigen for detection of human toxoplasmosis.

Abstract

This study describes a Toxoplasma gondii IgG enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay based on a new chimeric antigen containing three immunodominant regions from the MIC1, MAG1, and SAG1 proteins of the parasite and shows that this test is useful for diagnostic purposes and may replace the lysed and whole-cell antigens.
