Anti-Alpha-TgCenH3 (TgCenpA) [CenpA]
- Institute University of Georgia
Tool name: Anti-Alpha-TgCenH3 (TgCenpA) [CenpA]
Alternate names: T. gondii centromeric histone 3 variant (CenH3)
Tool type: Antibodies
Description: The phylum Apicomplexa includes various parasites that cause several human diseases including malaria and toxoplasmosis. These parasites are able to invade human hosts through a complex budding process. The budding process of Toxoplasma gondii was recently shown to require the centrocone. The centromeric histone 3 variant (CenH3) is part of this centrocone and can be visualized using the TgCenpA antibody.
