Background of KMP-11 antibody
Kinetoplastid Membrane Protein-11 (KMP-11), previously known as the lipophosphoglycan-associated protein (LPGAP), is an 11 kDa membrane protein.
KMP11 may be involved in the regulation of the cytoskeleton through interaction with the subpellicular microtubules. It may be involved in parasite mobility and attachment to the surface of the host cell. It strongly stimulates T-cell proliferation and it is thought to play a role in the immunology of leishmaniasis.
