Variant Surface Glycoproteins, Trypanosoma MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Variant Surface Glycoproteins, Trypanosoma
Tree Number(s)
D12.776.395.550.990
D12.776.543.550.990
D23.050.293.900

Scope Note
Glycoproteins attached to the surface coat of the trypanosome. Many of these glycoproteins show amino acid sequence diversity expressed as antigenic variations. This continuous development of antigenically distinct variants in the course of infection ensures that some trypanosomes always survive the development of immune response to propagate the infection.
