Fungal Antigens and Fungal Disease: An Alkali-Soluble, Water Soluble Antigen from Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioidomycosis

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Diagnostic medical mycology has been slow to advance due to a lack of species specific antigens in organisms which cause serious diseases in man. Toward this end, an HPLC analysis was done of the following fungal antigens: histoplasmins HKC-43 and H-42, blastomycin KCB-26, an alkali-soluble, water soluble antigen from Blastomyces dermatitidis (b-ASWS), a coccidioidin prepared from a toluene lysate of the mycelial-arthroconidia phase of Coccidioides immitis, and an alkali-soluble, water-soluble antigen from Coccidioides immitis (c-ASWS). The HPLC survey included size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), ion exchange chromatography (HPIEC), and reversephase chromatography (RP). Resolution was poor with both SEC and HPIEC but was ... continued below

The HPLC survey included size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), ion exchange chromatography (HPIEC), and reversephase chromatography (RP). Resolution was poor with both SEC and HPIEC but was excellent with RP chromatography. The use of RP will allow sufficient separation for further antigenic and structural analysis.
