Identification of 22 unique proteins from Oesophagostomum dentatum

O. dentatum L3 were treated with hydrolase inhibitors to prevent the L3-to-L4 molt. Total larval worm proteins were separated by 2-D gel electrophoresis, and the protein profiles of treated and untreated worm populations were compared. Significantly differentially expressed spots were analyzed by MALDI-TOF-MS/MS. Twenty-two unique proteins were identified and annotated.

Selected Tables & Figures from paper:
