Mite burden in rabbits at week 4 post-challenge. Key: PBS, immunized with 1 ml 0.01 M PBS each time; Quil A, immunized with 1 ml QuilA saponin at concentration of 1 mg/ml (dissolved in PBS) each time; vector protein, immunized with 100 μg (first time) and 200 μg (second time) purified pET32a(+) vector protein with 1 ml QuilA saponin at concentration of 1 mg/ml (dissolved in PBS); rSsCLP5, rSsCLP5’, and rSsCLP5” refer to the test groups immunized with 100 μg then 200 μg purified rSsCLP protein with 1 ml QuilA saponin at concentration of 1 mg/ml (dissolved in PBS) at the first and second immunizations. Data columns correspond to the mean values; error bars represent the standard error. The mean values of mite burden in test groups immunized with rSsCLP5 were significantly lower compared to the control groups at week 4 post-challenge (F(5,63) = 39.354, P < 0.0001)
