Abstract

Representatives of Apicomplexa perform various kinds of movements that are linked to the different stages of their life cycle. Ancestral apicomplexan lineages, including gregarines, represent organisms suitable for research into the evolution and diversification of motility within the group. The...

Abstract

The phylum Apicomplexa is a quintessentially parasitic lineage, whose members infect a broad range of animals. One exception to this may be the apicomplexan genus Nephromyces, which has been described as having a mutualistic relationship with its host. Here we analyze transcriptome data from ...

Abstract

Parasites often have reduced genomes as their own genes become redundant when utilizing their host as a source of metabolites, thus losing their own de novo production of metabolites. Primate malaria parasites can synthesize vitamin B1 (thiamine) de novo but rodent malaria and other...

Abstract

Apicomplexan parasites encompass a diverse group of eukaryotic intracellular pathogens that infect various animal hosts to cause disease. Intriguingly, apicomplexans possess a unique organelle of algal origin, the apicoplast, which phylogenetically links these parasites to dinoflagellates and...

Abstract

Profilin is an actin monomer binding protein that provides ATP-actin for incorporation into actin filaments. In contrast to higher eukaryotic cells with their large filamentous actin structures, apicomplexan parasites typically contain only short and highly dynamic microfilaments. In apicomplexans, ...

Abstract

Parasites of the genera Plasmodium and Haemoproteus (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida) are a diverse group of pathogens that infect birds nearly worldwide. Despite their ubiquity, the ecological and evolutionary factors that shape the diversity and distribution of these protozoan parasites among avian...

Abstract

This special issue presents a collection of scientific papers summarizing current advances in the study of cellular biology, evolution, adaptation, and molecular genetics of parasitic protists, including amoebae, Trypanosoma spp., and several apicomplexan parasites. The evolution and specialization ...

Abstract

The near complete mitochondrial genome for Cyclospora cayetanensis is 6184 bp in length with three protein-coding genes (Cox1, Cox3, CytB) and numerous lsrDNA and ssrDNA fragments. Gene arrangements were conserved with other coccidia in the Eimeriidae, but the C. cayetanensis mitochondrial genome...

Abstract

This special issue contains 10 review articles presented at a 2013 meeting entitled, "The evolution of parasite genomes and the origins of parasitism". The purpose of the meeting was to promote consensus on the impact of genomics on the evolution of parasitism and to identify any themes in genome...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of large subunit ribosomal RNA (LSU rRNA or 28S rRNA) gene sequences from free-living predatory flagellates Colpodella angusta, Voromonas pontica, and Alphamonas edax (Apicomplexa) confirms their close relationship with chromerids Chromera velia and Vitrella brassicaformis,...
