Abstract

Human harvest of phenotypically desirable animals from wild populations imposes selection that can reduce the frequencies of those desirable phenotypes. Hunting and fishing contrast with agricultural and aquacultural practices in which the most desirable animals are typically bred with the specific ...

Abstract

In this letter, the correspondents reply to comments by Sharp et al. that the proposal of challenging the western gorilla (Gorilla gorilla) as the original source of human Plasmodium falciparum was not justified by the data presented wherein P. falciparum-like sequences were amplified from the...

Abstract

Plasmodium falciparum, the agent of human malignant malaria, diverged from Plasmodium reichenowi, the chimpanzee parasite, about the time the human and chimpanzee lineages diverged from each other. The absence of synonymous nucleotide variation at ten loci indicates that the world populations of P. ...

Abstract

Plasmodium reichenowi, a chimpanzee parasite, was until very recently the only known close relative of Plasmodium falciparum, the most virulent agent of human malaria. Recently, Plasmodium gaboni, another closely related chimpanzee parasite, was discovered, suggesting that the diversity of ...

Abstract

Plasmodium falciparum, the causative agent of malignant malaria, is among the most severe human infectious diseases. The closest known relative of P. falciparum is a chimpanzee parasite, Plasmodium reichenowi, of which one single isolate was previously known. The co-speciation hypothesis suggests...

Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that the Echinococcus granulosus antigen B (AgB) interferes with the intermediate hosts' immune response and is encoded by a multigene family. The number of members within the family is still uncertain, but there are several evidences of a large genetic variability. ...

Abstract

The phylogeny of the species and biogeographical considerations suggests that the D. saltans group originated in the tropics of the New World, similarly as the closely related D. willistoni.

Abstract

Recent advances in the study of population structure and phylogenetic diversity of parasites belonging to the genera Trypanosoma and Leishmania are reviewed. These parasites exhibit a basically clonal population structure with occasional bouts of genetic exchange or hybridization, and a strong...
