Abstract

Our previous screening of a Glossina morsitans morsitans λgt11 salivary gland expression library with serum of a tsetse fly exposed rabbit identified a cDNA encoding Tsetse Antigen5 (TAg5, 28.9 kDa), a homologue of Antigen5 sting venom allergens. Recombinant TAg5 was produced in Sf9 cells in order...

Abstract

Lutzomyia longipalpis expresses a salivary protein called maxadilan (MAX) that functions to dilate vertebrate blood vessels and thereby to facilitate the sand fly's acquisition of blood. We hypothesized that antibodies specific for one of many MAX variants would inhibit vasodilatory function of...
