Generation of vectors for optimised expression of Sm14 antigens

We have obtained a strain expressing Sm14 from Schistosoma mansoni using a codon-optimized sm14 gene. This construct increased expression levels 4-fold. This strain induced a cellular Th1-type immune response specific for Sm14. We have also obtained expression of Sm14 in rBCG by a complemented LeuD- BCG auxotroph.
