Purification of the 67-kDa lectin-like glycoprotein of Trypanosoma cruzi, LLGP-67, and its evaluation as a relevant antigen for the diagnosis of human infection.

Abstract

In the present work we propose a simple method for affinity purification of the 67-kDa lectin-like glycoprotein (LLGP-67) from Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas' disease. The LLGP-67, which presents galactose binding activity and participates in the host cell recognition process, was previously purified by methods based on its interaction… (More)
