Abstract

A recombinant blood-stage vaccine for Plasmodium vivax malaria based on the functional receptor-binding domain of PvDBP (PvRII) has been developed. A synthetic gene coding for PvRII was expressed in Escherichia coli using codon optimization. Expression level of recombinant PvRII was 10% of the total cellular proteins. Truncated PvRII products, seen when the native PvRII gene was expressed, were absent in case of synthetic gene.
