Abstract/Artist Statement

We have analyzed using mass spectrometry a vesicle-enriched fraction from the human protozoal parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. Using the recently completed T. vaginalis genome, we have carried out an extensive bioinformatic analysis of this subcellular fraction and have identified a number of interesting targets for future biological study. We will discuss the implications of our analysis on drug discovery against this important human parasite.
