The physicochemical fingerprint of Necator americanus

Veeren M. Chauhan, Jonathan W. Aylott, David I. Pritchard, and colleagues harnessed controlled exsheathment of infective axenic L3 larva to investigate the physicochemical properties of the emergent cuticle and deposited sheath, using atomic force microscopy and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry.
