Abstract

Abstract

The present study investigated the serum antibody response to parasite antigens involved in human malaria. Analysis was performed by protein immunoblotting of a pool of preparations obtained from blood of patients from Tapachula, Chiapas (southeastern Mexico), and sera from local malarious patients. Patients sera recognized 19 antigens with molecular sizes between 17 and 170 kD. The most frequently recognized antigens were proteins of 19, 31, 43, 72, 93, and 97 kD. These proteins could be useful in diagnostic methods and possibly relevant in vaccine design.
