The initial aim of the proposal was to study variations in the expression levels of two important parasite ligands that mediate host cell selection and invasion. Based on our previous results we had hypothesized that changes in the expression of these gene families would occur in response to changes in the host cell environment or specific immunity. Changes in the expression pattern where to be measured both at the RNA and protein level.
