Previous research has established that the scabies mite, Sarcoptes scabiei, is the source of immunogenic proteins and of molecules that modulate the immune response of a variety of host immune effector cells. The purpose of this study was to isolate, characterize and sequence some of the molecules responsible for these activities.
