Abstract: Fatty acid binding protein (FADP) is an attractive vaccine candidate and a drug target for controlling fasciolosis caused by <i>Fasciola gigantica </i>in ruminants. The cDNA encoding <i>F. gigantica </i>FADP was amplified by polymerase chain reaction and expressed in <i>Escherichia coli </i>as a recombinant protein using a prokaryotic expression system. The protein was purified to homogeneity by nickel chelating affinity chromatography and subsequently by ion-exchange chromatography. The recombinant protein thus obtained will be assessed for immuno-prophylaxis and for its immunodiagnostic potential in ruminants agaiust <i>F. gigantica.</i>
