Monoclonal antibodies were raised against the surface of trypomastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi. Although some of these antibodies reacted against antigens shared by trypomastigote and epimastigote or amastigote forms, the majority were trypomastigote-specific. Trypomastigote-specific monoclonal antibodies recognized all infective stages, including trypomastigotes from the bloodstream of infected mice, insect feces, tissue culture and those resulting from differentiation of epimastigotes in… CONTINUE READING
