Sm25, a major schistosome tegumental glycoprotein, is dependent on palmitic acid for membrane attachment.


Sm25, a major antigen in the surface tegument of the parasitic helminth Schistosoma mansoni, is a 25 kDa N-glycosylated glycoprotein which co-purifies with isolated surface membranes and behaves as an integral membrane protein in Triton X-114 (TX-114). The deduced amino acid sequence of Sm25 shows a short C-terminal hydrophobic domain between residues 163… (More)
