Abstract: The interaction of Schistosoma mansoni with its host's immune system is largely affected by multiple specific and non-specific evasion mechanisms employed by the parasite to reduce the host's immune reactivity. Only little is known about these mechanisms on the molecular level. The four molecules described below are intrinsic parasitic proteins recently identified and studied in our laboratory. 1. m28--A 28kDa membrane serine protease. m28 cleaves iC3b and can thus restrict attack by effector cells utilizing c…
