Identification of new antigens in visceral leishmaniasis by expression cloning and immunoblotting with sera of Kala-Azar patients from Bihar, India

Academic Article


  • Sera of kala-azar patients from Bihar, India, were used to identify Leishmania donovani antigens encoded by a phage expression library. Ten antigens were identified, five of which have not been described as leishmania antigens before. The antigens specifically react with sera of leishmania-infected patients but not of toxoplasma-or plasmodium-infected patients. Copyright © 2005, American Society for Microbiology.
