Purification, crystallization and X-ray diffraction analysis of Trypanosoma congolense insect-stage surface antigen (TcCISSA).

Abstract

Trypanosoma congolense is a major contributor to the vast socioeconomic devastation in sub-Saharan Africa caused by animal African trypanosomiasis. These protozoan parasites are transmitted between mammalian hosts by tsetse-fly vectors. A lack of understanding of the molecular basis of tsetse-trypanosome interactions stands as a barrier to the development… (More)
