Chemical Variant Surface Glycoproteins, Trypanosoma

Name Variant Surface Glycoproteins, Trypanosoma
Equivalent Terms SSP-4 | Surface Variant Glycoproteins, Trypanosoma | Trypanosoma Variant Surface Coat Glycoproteins | VSG 117 | VSG 118 | VSG 221
Definition 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.
Curation Status No associations have been curated for this chemical yet.
