Abstract: Gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) cost the Australian sheep industry $369 million annually. Currently the commercialised marker for selection of parasite resistant sheep is low worm egg counts (WEC) which has a number of disadvantages. Resistance to GIN is immune-mediated so improved understanding of immune mediators of resistance may lead to new markers of resistance. Galectin-11 and galectin-14 are relatively new molecules, with unknown function, secreted in large amounts into abomasal mucus during GIN infections. This study aims to determine whether galectin-11 and galectin-14 are associated with GIN resistance.
