Chromosomal DNA from Trypanosoma cruzi, the agent of the American trypanosomiasis (Chagas' disease), was used for construction of a DNA library, employing the expression vector lambda gt11. Nine clones encoding different parasite antigens were isolated from this library by screening with an antiserum from a Chagasic patient. Nucleotide sequence analysis showed that seven out of the nine isolated clones code for antigens which contain tandemly repeated amino acid sequence motifs. Each of the… CONTINUE READING
