Stable forms of antigenic Taenia ovis polypeptides
Stable forms of Taenia ovis peptide antigens, such as portions of a T. ovis oncosphere antigen which runs as a 47-52 kDa doublet, are suitable for use in vaccines to protect ruminants against infection by cestode parasites. The antigens are preferably obtained by isolation and expression of the DNA encoding them in recombinant host cells. Aspects of the invention include DNA encoding T. ovis antigens, vectors containing such DNA and host cells which express the T. ovis antigens.
