Abstract

Thiolases are enzymes that remove an acetyl-coenzyme A group from acyl-CoA in the catabolic β-oxidation of fatty acids, or catalyse the reverse condensation reaction for anabolic processes such as the biosynthesis of sterols and ketone bodies. In humans, six homologous isoforms of thiolase have...

Abstract

Genetic exchange in the Trypanosomatidae is reviewed, in the following sections: laboratory experiments on genetic exchange (experimental crosses of Trypanosoma brucei, and a shorter section on other trypanosomatids); evidence from population genetics and evolutionary studies (methods, and evidence ...

Abstract

This paper attempts to trace the probable evolution of mammalian trypanosomes. Haemato-phagous insects probably originated from phytophagous and/or predaceous ancestors, the trypano-somatid parasites of which eventually gave rise to trypanosomes. Trypanosomes transmitted by inoculation...

Abstract

This article draws attention to the previous work of the authors on the nature of the therapeutic action of certain drugs, and on the phenomena of drug-fastness and interference, by methods based on the detection of drug absorption by trypanosomes by their acquisition of photosensitiveness, by the...

Abstract

The classification of trypanosomes is discussed, and it is pointed out that attempts to subdivide the genus Trypanosama have not been satisfactory. Wen-yon's division into groups based on the mode of transmission and method of evolution in the invertebrate, may be satisfactory from the medical and...

Abstract

The optimum method of transmission for a blood parasite is brought about when it is withdrawn from the blood by an insect and is reintroduced by it into suitable blood. Leaving aside the cases where the insect plays but a mechanical rôle in much the same manner as a syringe needle, cases of...

Abstract

In this paper an attempt is made to devise a classification of the African trypanosomes based upon the manner in which the different species undergo development or maintain their existence in the flies.
According to the author there are two main classes, viz., those in which the trypanosomes are...
