Taenia solium: characterization of a small heat shock protein (Tsol-sHSP35.6) and its possible relevance to the diagnosis and pathogenesis of neurocysticercosis.
A cDNA encoding for a predicted small heat shock protein (sHSP), Tsol-sfISP35.6, has been isolated by antibody screening of a Taenia solium c-DNA library. The clone was a full-length sequence (1172 bp) with an open reading frame of 945 bp and encoded for a 314 amino acid protein with deduced molecular mass of 35.6 kDa, isoelectric point of 5.6 arid the characteristic HSP20/alpha-crystallin domain duplicated. It was highly conserved, with a high sequence similarity with other platyhelminth sHS...Expand abstract
