Full-length-enriched cDNA libraries from Echinococcus granulosus contain separate populations of oligo-capped and trans-spliced transcripts and a high level of predicted signal peptide sequences.
The tissue-dwelling larval stages of the cestode Echinococcus granulosus are intimately associated with the host, implying that a range of molecular mediators may be secreted by the parasite into theExpand

Two different 8 kDa monomers are involved in the oligomeric organization of the native Echinococcus granulosus antigen B
The present work describes the purification and characterization of antigen B (AgB), the thermostable lipoprotein from E. granulosus. Native AgB was purified to homogeneity by a new strategyExpand

Antibody and Th1/Th2‐type responses in BALB/c mice inoculated with live or dead Echinococcus granulosus protoscoleces
The aims of this study were to investigate whether a Th1‐or a Th2‐type response is stimulated in the first stages of experimental infection with Echinococcus granulosus, and to determine whether liveExpand

Signal sequence analysis of expressed sequence tags from the nematode Nippostrongylus brasiliensis and the evolution of secreted proteins in parasites
BackgroundParasitism is a highly successful mode of life and one that requires suites of gene adaptations to permit survival within a potentially hostile host. Among such adaptations is the secretionExpand

The laminated layer: Recent advances and insights into Echinococcus biology and evolution.
The laminated layer is the unique mucin-based extracellular matrix that protects Echinococcus larvae, and thus to an important extent, shapes host-parasite relationships in the larval echinococcoses.Expand

[Prevalence of Flavivirus antibodies in Alouatta caraya primate autochthonous of Argentina].
Flavivirus constitute a human health problem in our country. Primates are known to participate in the maintenance of Dengue and Yellow Fever viruses. However, these animals play a role which stillExpand

A Transcriptomic Analysis of Echinococcus granulosus Larval Stages: Implications for Parasite Biology and Host Adaptation
Background The cestode Echinococcus granulosus - the agent of cystic echinococcosis, a zoonosis affecting humans and domestic animals worldwide - is an excellent model for the study of host-parasiteExpand

Thioredoxin and glutathione systems differ in parasitic and free-living platyhelminths
BackgroundThe thioredoxin and/or glutathione pathways occur in all organisms. They provide electrons for deoxyribonucleotide synthesis, function as antioxidant defenses, in detoxification, Fe/SExpand

A Novel Terminal-Repeat Retrotransposon in Miniature (TRIM) Is Massively Expressed in Echinococcus multilocularis Stem Cells
Taeniid cestodes (including the human parasites Echinococcus spp. and Taenia solium) have very few mobile genetic elements (MGEs) in their genome, despite lacking a canonical PIWI pathway. The MGEsExpand
