Abstract

A 3-step procedure for cloning Theileria parva parasites was developed. The first step involved the in vitro infection of a fixed number of bovine lymphocytes with titrated sporozoites. The cell lines obtained from infections initiated using sporozoite/lymphocyte ratios below 1:100 were then...
