A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

A simple method is described to generate carrier-free recombinant antigens following their expression in Escherichia coli. A plasmid, called pMSgt11, has been constructed such that the cleavage site for the protease factor Xa separates the recombinant antigen from an enzymatically active beta-galactosidase. Thus, rapid purification of the active beta-galactosidase recombinant protein, followed by digestion with factor Xa, releases the antigen of interest. The pMSgt11 plasmid is compatible with the phage expression vector, lambda gt11 and the feasibility of applying this system has been demonstrated using malarial recombinant antigens. Inserts from lambda gt11 recombinant Plasmodium falciparum clones have been recloned into the EcoRI site of pMSgt11 and the expressed soluble fusion proteins have been purified from crude extracts using a one step affinity chromatography. After protease digestion, the fusion protein cleavage products were analysed by immunoblot with a panel of different human immune sera. We were able to successfully demonstrate specific antibody titers to the parasite-derived carrier-free antigen, without interference from anti-Escherichia coli-specific antibodies. The general application of this approach to epidemiological analysis is discussed.
