Abstract

Trypanosoma rangeli and Trypanosoma cruzi are generalist trypanosomes sharing a wide range of mammalian hosts; they are transmitted by triatomine bugs, and are the only trypanosomes infecting humans in the Neotropics. Their origins, phylogenetic relationships, and emergence as human parasites have...

Abstract

Background microRNAs (miRNAs) are a highly abundant class of small noncoding regulatory RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression in multicellular organisms. miRNAs are involved in a wide range of biological and physiological processes, including the regulation of host immune...

Abstract

Tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α is an important human cytokine that imparts dualism in malaria pathogenicity. At high dosages, TNF-α is believed to provoke pathogenicity in cerebral malaria; while at lower dosages TNF-α is protective against severe human malaria. To understand the human TNF-α gene...

Abstract

The functional region (reactive centre) of serine protease inhibitors is near the carboxyl-terminal end, and is an exposed site that acts as a "bait" for the appropriate serine protease to recognise and covalently bind. The specificity of the inhibitor is determined, at least in part, by a single...

Abstract

Three clones of 3 Trypanosoma brucei isolates (2 of them man-tested) were syringe-passaged through rats. At each passage they were tested for their resistance to human serum by the Blood-Incubation-Inoculation-Test (BIIT) in rats. One clone was BIIT negative at the first test but then gave 12...

Abstract

In this paper the authors summarise the results of experiments which have been conducted by them for a number of years in order to ascertain whether certain of the parasitic Mastigophora, notably members of the genera Herpetomonas (or Leishmama-like bodies) and Crithidia (or bodies such as the...

Abstract

In this paper the author describes certain phenomena which have been observed to occur in the course of the evolution of the Sareosporidia, suggesting that they are in many respects very nearly related to the Coccidia.
Following DOFLEIN'S (1911) classification of the Protozoa the Sareosporidia are...
