Swiss Prot Num:
Recombinant protein containing the pentapeptidyl repeat sequence of GPEET-PARP linked to the C-terminus of glutathione-S-transferase.
Application ELISA.
Background GPEET and EP procyclins are the major surface glycoproteins of Trypanosoma brucei while it lives in the midgut (procyclic form) of tsetse flies (Glossina spp.). Trypanosoma brucei is transmitted between mammals by tsetse flies and the species causes African trypanosomiasis (or sleeping sickness). The surface of Trypanosoma brucei brucei insect forms is covered by an invariant protein coat consisting of procyclins.
There are six or seven procyclin genes that encode unusual proteins with extensive tandem repeat units of glutamic acid (E) and proline (P) (referred to as EP repeats), and two genes that encode proteins with internal pentapeptide (GPEET) repeats. GPEET procyclin, is rich in Glu-Pro-Glu-Glu-Thr repeats. Although the EP forms of procyclins have been isolated and characterized by several laboratories, evidence for GPEET procyclin has largely been confined to the expression of its mRNA.
