Abstract

In vitro studies of sexual blood stages of the most fatal malaria species, Plasmodium falciparum, have revealed key processes by which gametocytes develop and transmit infection from humans to anopheline mosquitoes. However, most malaria cases outside sub-Saharan Africa are caused by other ...

Abstract

Natural selection in domestic dogs is of great interest in evolutionary biology since dogs have migrated to every inhabited continent of the world alongside humans, and adapted to diverse environments. Here, we explored their demographic history and genetic basis of adaptation to the tropical...

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

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

The origin and geographical spread of Plasmodium falciparum was determined by analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphism and divergence from its most closely related species, P. reichenowi (a rare parasite of chimpanzees). The complete 6-kb mitochondrial genome was sequenced from the...

Abstract

" In the classification, of Haemocytozoa or Haemosporidia the greatest confusion still exists and it is thus desirable to revise their classification. The confusion arising in connection with the systematic position of these protozoa is undoubtedly due to the very strict parasitism of these...
