Identification and characterisation of novel pathogenic factors of Trypanosoma congolense.
Trypanosoma congolense is a major causative agent of the bovine disease trypanosomosis which has a considerable economic impact on sub-Saharan Africa. Current control methods for trypanosomosis are unsatisfactory and ...
Structural studies aimed at improving the antigenicity of congopain.
African animal trypanosomosis or nagana is a tsetse fly-transmitted disease, caused by Trypanosoma congolense, T. vivax and to a lesser extent T. brucei brucei. The disease causes major losses in revenue in many ...
The detection of two plasmodium falciparum metabolic enzymes using chicken antibodies.
Three protein targets are used in malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). These are Plasmodium falciparum histidine rich protein 2, Plasmodium lactate dehydrogenase and aldolase. A thrust of research in RDTs is to improve ...
Dye-protein interactions : protein staining and dye-IgY, dye-dextran-IgY complexes for antigen detection.
In order to develop a cheaper alternative to the conventional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay system, application of dye molecules as labels in immunoassay was investigated in this study. This chromogenic dye-antibody ...
