Technical Data
Plasmodium vivax MSP1 (Plasmodium vivax merozoite surface protein 1)
The parasite Plasmodium vivax is the most frequent and widely distributed cause of benign, but recurring (tertian), malaria. It is one of four species of parasite that commonly cause malaria infection in humans. It is less virulent than Plasmodium falciparum, the deadliest of the four, and seldom fatal. P. vivax is passed on by the female Anopheles mosquito, since it is the only gender that bites.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
