Abstract

The decoding of the Tritryp reference genomes nearly 7 years ago provided a first peek into the biology of pathogenic trypanosomatids and a blueprint that has paved the way for genome-wide studies. Although 60-70% of the predicted protein coding genes in Trypanosoma brucei, Trypanosoma cruzi and ...

Abstract

The trypanosomatid GP63 proteases are known to be involved in parasite-host interaction and exhibit strong sequence and structural similarities to those of their hosts and insect vectors. Based on genome sequences of the three trypanosomatids, Trypanosoma brucei, Trypanosoma cruzi, and Leishmania...

Abstract

Thiolases are enzymes that remove an acetyl-coenzyme A group from acyl-CoA in the catabolic β-oxidation of fatty acids, or catalyse the reverse condensation reaction for anabolic processes such as the biosynthesis of sterols and ketone bodies. In humans, six homologous isoforms of thiolase have...

Abstract

Molecular evolutionary relationships within the Kinetoplastida were deduced from comparisons of the nuclear small and large subunit ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequences. These studies showed that relationships among the trypanosomatid protozoans differ from those previously proposed from studies of...
