Cross-reactivity with other pathological conditions and normal controls. Blots containing CE2 HF were reacted with individual/pooled (n = 10 per group) serum of AE (A), neurocysticercosis (B), sparganosis (C), primary hepatocellular carcinoma (D), and normal controls (E). EgAgB1 shows cross-reactivity with AE patient sera (boxes in panel A). Markings are the same as in Figure 2A. AE, alveolar echinococcosis; NC, neurocysticercosis; HCC, primary hepatocellular carcinoma. M
r, molecular weights in kDa; pI, isoelectric point.
