Interpretive Summary: This study reports the protein sequence encoding a serine protease of the common cattle grub. Availability of the protein sequence allowed expression of and immunological characterization of the enzyme, which was used to produce a recombinant vaccine for immunization of cattle against the cattle grub. The cattle grub vaccine was patented (US patent 6559121 & Europe EP 0326419).

Technical Abstract: This entry reports the amino acid sequence encoding hypodermin A, a serine protease of Hypoderma lineatum, the common cattle grub.
