The immobilization antigens (i-antigens) of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis are potential vaccine candidates for the prevention of 'white spot' disease in freshwater fish. These antigens vary with respect to antigenicity and molecular mass, and at least five i-antigen serotypes have been identified among parasite isolates thus far. In previous studies, the gene and corresponding cDNA encoding a approximately 48 kDa i-antigen from parasite isolate G1 (serotype A), had been cloned and sequenced. We… CONTINUE READING
