The European Malaria Reagent Repository launches its new website on 12/05/2013
The repository has a collection of parasite strains, clones and lines from both human and rodents, monoclonal antibodies to a wide range of blood stage asexual and gametocyte antigens, and a panel of ~60 recombinant antigens derived from blood stage expressed P. falciparum and P. chabaudi genes. We can also provide P. falciparum parasite extracts and DNA on request, as well as IFA slides.
Monoclonal antibody 7.7, specific for the EXP-2 protein, a component of the PTEX transport complex on the parasitophorous vacuole membrane, is now available from the repository. This antibody is useful for localisation of the parasite membrane in IFAT or confocal studies (see Bullen et al., (2012). J. Biol. Chem. 287: 7871
