General purification procedure. Trypanosomes were intraperitoneally injected into rats. When their multiplication reached the logarithmic growth stage, parasites were purified from blood by chromatography and resuspended in secretion medium. After 2 h, parasites were removed by centrifugation and secreted proteins (ESPs) were purified through chromatography. ESPs were separated on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE), stained before mass spectrometry (MS/MS) analysis.
