Project: A study on the presence of proteolytic enzymes in te excretion/secretion products from ruminant gastrointestinal nematodes and their potential use in serodiagnosis and/or immunisation.
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
For the collection of excretion/secretion products in a convenient amount, the fourth stage larvae and adult parasites will be cultured in vitro. From the E:S material collected, proteolytic activity will be examined using a technique of substrate electrophoresis on PAGE gels. Later on their potential use in serodiagnosis and immunisation will be screened.
