Fluorescent antibody study of the post-cysticercoid development ofMoniezia expansa
The strobila ofMoniezia expansa was separated into developmental areas, and these were compared using immunological techniques. Agar double diffusion plates and immunoelectrophoresis showed differing antigenic composition or concentration between the strobilar regions studied. Conjugation of the antisera with rhodamine lissamine-200 aided in localization of common antigens on tissue sections of the various developmental stages. What appeared to be unique localizations were observed.
