Identification of outer oocyst wall proteins of three Cryptosporidium (Apicomplexa: Cryptosporidiidae) species by 125I surface labeling.


Autoradiography of oocyst wall surface proteins of three Cryptosporidium spp. revealed common bands at 285 to 290, 145 to 148, 120, 57, and 32 kilodaltons (kDa). Cryptosporidium baileyi and C. muris share proteins at 180, 100, 80 to 81, 29, and 18 to 19 kDa; C. baileyi and C. parvum share one protein at 46 to 47 kDa; and C. muris and C. parvum share a protein at 67 to 69 kDa. Additional protein bands, each unique to one species, were also observed.
