Anti-MSP1 Block 2, K1 type [12.2]

Info

Applications N/A
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets MSP-1 Block 2 (3D7)
Reactivity Plasmodium
Relevance Malaria continues to be a significant health problem in India. Several of the intended Plasmodium falciparum vaccine candidate antigens are highly polymorphic. The genetic diversity of P. falciparum merozoite surface protein-1 (MSP-1) has been extensively studied from various parts of the world. The block 2 region includes three allele families: K1, MAD20, and RO33. Characterization of antigenic diversity in vaccine candidate antigens are valuable for future vaccine trials as well as understanding the population dynamics of P. falciparum parasites.
Host Mouse
Immunogen Schizont extracts
Subclass IgG1
Notes This monoclonal recognises serine containing amino acid repeat sequences (SAQSGA) within the Block 2 region of merozoite surface protein 1 (MSP-1) from Plasmodium falciparum (3D7).
