- ... We report the identification of a Cryptobia genomic DNA gene predicted to encode a hydrophobic protein containing a zinc metalloproteinase motif, HEXXH, and hence named it a major surface proteinase 1-like (MSP-1). The MSP-1 gene was identified using universal genome walking. Southern blot analysis revealed it to be a multicopy gene. Fragments of DNA encoding a segment homologous to the HEXXH moti ...
