Abstract

Wolbachia, an endosymbiotic bacterium in filarial parasites, comes into contact with the host immune system upon parasite death. Here. we analyzed, total IgG and isotype antibody responses to Wolbachia hsp60 in individuals from an area endemic for Wuchereria bancrofti. Wolbachia derived hsp60 gene was cloned and the recombinant protein was used to determine the IgG and isotype reactivity by Western blotting and ELISA. All individuals from the endemic area generated antibody responses to Brugia malayi Wolbachia hsp60, which were elevated in the group with chronic pathology. Isotype analysis showed that, all clinical groups mounted IgGI-IgG4 responses with higher levels of B. malayi Wolbachia hsp60 specific IgGl observed in the sera of patients with chronic pathology compared to micro-filaraemics and endemic normals. These findings suggests that Wolbachia-derived hsp60 generates antibody responses in individuals infected or exposed to W bancrofti and an elevated IgG and IgG I reactivity is observed in people with filarial pathology.
