generation of rBCG-babesia antigen strains

Two recombinant BCG (rBCG) expressing the antigen RAP-1 from Babesia bovis. The rBCG contains expression vectors named pUS2001 and pMIP12 were a fragment comprising the rap-1 gene devoid of signal sequence was inserted. Both constructs have different promoters, ribosome binding sites and heterologous signal sequences. Western blot using specific anti RAP-1 monoclonal antibodies demonstrated the expression of rRAP-1 in BCG. Subcellular localization experiments indicated that rRAP-1. The construction in pMIP12 demonstrated to be stable in vitro and in vivo.
