Distribution of the Soluble Dehydrogenases and Diaphorases of Brucei Subgroup of Trypanosomes in Starch-gel Electropherograms

Abstract

ANTIGENIC variation in the brucei subgroup of trypanosomes considerably limits the development of a suitable anti-trypanosomal vaccine, and this limitation is likely to continue until we have more knowledge of the nature of antigenic variation. Until then, however, more information about the nature of trypanosome antigens would be useful.
