Ramasamy R., Jamnadas H. & Mutinga M.J. 1981. Proteins and surface proteins of Leishmania promastigotes and their possible relevance to the characterisation of strains. International Journal for Parasitology11: 387–390. Two strains of Leishmania isolated from phlebotomine flies and another one from a patient with kala-azar were grown in culture as promastigotes. They were analysed for protein composition and surface proteins by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis after surface radiolabelling. Differences were observed in the characteristic patterns of proteins and surface proteins between the two strains that are likely to be Leishmania donovani and the other strain. Such differences may prove valuable in the classification of Leishmania strains.
