We previously identified three proteins on the surface of merozoites (140,000, 105,000 and 75,000 m.w.). To determine if 140,000 m.w. protein was related to other surface proteins, we immunized mice with liposomes containing merozoite proteins from the 140,000 m.w. region of the polyacrylamide gel. The immune sera reacted with the surface of viable merozoites and acetone-fixed schizonts by immunofluorescence. The sera immunoprecipitated only the 140,000 m.w. protein from surface-labeled… CONTINUE READING
