Two Distinct Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille, 1811) Taxa Are Found in Sympatry in Guatemala and Mexico
TLDR
Understanding of the taxonomy and population subdivision of T. dimidiata is contributed to an understanding of the Taxonomic ambiguity which confounds control of this major parasitic disease in Mesoamerica.
House improvements and community participation in the control of Triatoma dimidiata re-infestation in Jutiapa, Guatemala.
TLDR
A cross-disciplinary study was conducted addressing T. dimidiata infestation, household hygiene, and housing construction in Guatemala focusing on local materials and cultural aspects that could lead to long-term improvements in wall construction.
Risk factors for intradomiciliary infestation by the Chagas disease vector Triatoma dimidiatain Jutiapa, Guatemala.
TLDR
Control strategies against T. dimidiata should include the introduction of better-quality but inexpensive plastering formulations and better sanitation practices, which should not only reduce or eliminate infestation, but also prevent vector reinfestation.
An Ecosystem Approach for the Prevention of Chagas Disease in Rural Guatemala
In Latin America, more than 10 million people carry a parasite that puts them at risk of developing Chagas disease. This chronic and debilitating illness is caused by a microscopic blood parasite
Proteomic Study of Entamoeba histolytica Trophozoites, Cysts, and Cyst-Like Structures
TLDR
CLS could be generated as a rapid survival response of trophozoites to a stressful condition, which allows the parasite to survive temporarily inside a chitin-like resistant cover containing Jacob protein.
Transient transgenesis of the tapeworm Taenia crassiceps
TLDR
A successful transfection protocol of T. crassiceps cysticerci is described as the first step to approach a number of currently inaccessible biological questions on cysticercosis, and co-localization of the antibody and the GFP fluorescence in the tegumentary cytoplasm and subtegumentsary cytons will facilitate the development of functional genomics approaches applied.
Holocene life and microbiome profiling in ancient tropical Lake Chalco, Mexico
TLDR
Diversity among a large number of lineages and functional diversity is reported on and nitrogen-fixing bacteria and protein-family genes that are linked to contaminated environments, as well as several fungal pathogens of crops in near-surface sediments are found.
Transfection of Platyhelminthes
TLDR
In this review, availability of transfection techniques is analyzed across flatworms, from the initial transient achievements to the stable manipulations now developed for free-living and parasite species.
