    L Cao
    Department of Microbiology, The University of Hong Kong
    J Clin Microbiol 36:3028-31. 1998
    ..Thus, this ELISA-based test for the detection of anti-Mp1p antibody can be of significant value as a diagnostic for penicilliosis...

    K Y Yuen
    Department of Microbiology, The University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong
    J Clin Microbiol 39:3830-7. 2001
    ..This suggested that the recombinant protein and its antibody may be useful for serodiagnosis in patients with aspergilloma or invasive aspergillosis, and the protein may represent a good cell surface target for host humoral immunity...
