Abstract

Recombinant antigens of Cryptosporidium parvum, Cp900 and Cp40 but not Cp15, stimulated C. parvum-specific proliferative immune responses of mesenteric lymph node cells in C57BL/6J mice infected with different isolates (MD, GCH1, UCP, and IOWA) of C. parvum, indicating that both Cp900 and Cp40 are immunodominant targets of cellular immune responses during C. parvum infection.
