Paracoccidioides brasiliensis exoantigens: recognition by IgG from patients with different clinical forms of paracoccidioidomycosis.

Serum antibodies against antigens of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis have been one of the major diagnostic indicators of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM). In the present study, released antigen preparations (exoAg) obtained from P. brasiliensis isolates were characterized in terms of their protein components electrophoretically detectable and recognizable by sera… CONTINUE READING
