Daniel and Anderson , were the first to report on the species-specific antigen
5 of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which was later proved to be the same as the 38-kDa protein .
ICT is immunochromato-graphic capture assays with monoclonal anti-bodies to species-specific antigens
(histidine-rich protein2 [PfHRP2]), aldolase of plasmodium falciparum and conserved plasmodium antigens (lactate dehydrogenase).
suis), it is possible that our approach could have missed some interesting species-specific antigens
. Although we ranked the 177 surface-associated proteins using adhesion, which is a crucial biological property strongly associated with a significant number of experimentally verified protective antigens, we cannot exclude the possibility that some potential antigens are missed from our "high-potential" 34 antigens.
However, as previously stated, the relative difficulty in managing Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis can be an obstacle for species-specific antigens
The immunoglobulins were prepared from the ascetic fluid purified and tested by ELISA against different trypanosome species-specific antigens
, Anaplasma marginale antigen, Babesia bijemina antigen Theeileria parva antigen, to establish their specificity.
