Identifying the Red Blood Cell interacting molecule of Babesia microti.

Empitu, Maulana.

Abstract: Babesia microti is an emerging human pathogen that infects red blood cells (RBCs) and causing severe disease in immunocompromised population. Despite its clinical importance, relatively little is known about the molecular mechanisms of RBC invasion by B. microti. We employed phage display technology to identify molecules that mediate parasite-host interaction of B. microti. From this scr... read more
