|Product Overview:||Merozoite surface antigen is a protein located on the outside of the merozoite, playing an imperative role in immune reaction. About 55% cases of malaria are infected by Plasmodium falciparum (Pf). Pf MSP1 has to be used with Plasmodium vivax (Pv) together for ELISA and rapid diagnostic test, Plasmodium falciparum and vivax infection takes about 95% of Plasmodium caused infection.
Recombinant Malaria Pf. MSP1 produced in E.coli, fused to a 6xHis tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
|Description:||Plasmodium falciparum is a protozoan parasite, one of the species of Plasmodium that cause malaria. Malaria parasites are members of the Apicomplexa. Apicomplexa are characterized by a set of organelles found in some stages of the parasite's life cycle. These organelles, collectively known as apical organelles because of their localization at one end of the parasite, are involved in interactions between the parasite and host. In particular, the apical organelles have been implicated in the process of host cell invasion. In the case of Plasmodium, three distinct invasive forms have been identified: sporozoite, merozoite, and ookinete.|
