Toxoplasma gondii: identification of a developmentally regulated family of genes related to SAG2.

Abstract:

Previous studies have shown the surface of Toxoplasma gondii to be dominated by a family of proteins closely related to SAG1. In this study, we report the existence of a second family of genes defined by homology to SAG2. The predicted amino acid sequences of these three new proteins suggests that they are all glycosylphosphatidylinositol-linked surface antigens. All three also contain N-linked glycosylation sites, although their use has yet to be demonstrated. One of these SAG2-related antig...
