Western blot of Toxoplasma gondii or Neospora caninum antigen. Analysis was performed essentially as described by Sharma et al. (12) by using tachyzoites from in vitro culture of the N. caninum NC-1 isolate (13) and the T. gondii RH strain (10). Lanes 1-4 were probed with control sera and lanes 5-12 with human sera with high absorbencies in the N. caninum enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. 
Lane 1: T. gondii-positive human serum and T. gondii antigen; Lane 2: N. caninum-positive pig serum and T.
