The putatively protective Onchocerca volvulus neuronal protein E1 is a member of the death domain protein family.

Abstract

Here we show that E1, an ankyrin-related, potentially protective, neuronal protein of the human filarial nematode Onchocerca volvulus contains a death domain (DD), most similar to that of human Mort1/FADD (39% identity). In addition, sequence comparison of E1 to its homologue from Litomosoides sigmodontis and to Caenorhabditis elegans ankyrin defines two… (More)
