Abstract

Parasitic protozoan parasites have evolved many co-evolutionary paths towards stable transmission to their host population. Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria, and related haemosporidian parasites are dipteran-borne eukaryotic pathogens that actively invade and use vertebrate...

Abstract

Surra disease is a zoonosis caused by Trypanosoma (Trypanozoon) evansi, a salivary trypanosome, originally from Africa, which affects a wide range of mammalian worldwide. Dogs are highly susceptible to T. evansi infection and they often exhibit strong clinical signs than can lead to death, even...

Abstract

In this study, using a combined data set of SSU rDNA and gGAPDH gene sequences, we provide phylogenetic evidence that supports clustering of crocodilian trypanosomes from the Brazilian Caiman yacare (Alligatoridae) and Trypanosoma grayi, a species that circulates between African crocodiles...

Abstract

A molecular epidemiological survey of the protozoal parasites that cause equine piroplasmosis was conducted using samples collected from horses and zebra from different geographical locations in South Africa. A total of 488 samples were tested for the presence of Theileria equi and/or Babesia...

Abstract

Evolutionary relationships among the Trypanosoma brucei complex [T. brucei, T. gambiense and T. rhodesiense] are discussed in the light of recent molecular studies by the author and others. Subjects covered include the genetic diversity of T. brucei strains, the origin of human infectivity (which...

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

The 6 Afrotropical species of mosquitoes comprising the A. gambiae complex include the most efficient vectors of malaria in the world, as well as a nonvector species. The accepted interpretation of evolutionary relationships among these species is based on chromosomal inversions and suggests that...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of 18S ribosomal RNA sequences placed Trypanosoma brucei from humans [T. rhodesiense and T. gambiense] in a clade comprising exclusively mammalian trypanosomes of African origin, suggesting an evolutionary history confined to Africa. T. cruzi from humans and sylvatic mammals...

Abstract

Although 14 years only have passed since the discovery of Leishmania donovani and L. trópica a very large number of papers have been published on these protozoa and the diseases produced by them; these articles are, however, to be found distributed throughout a large number of periodicals which are ...
