Metacyclics of L. major and putative metacyclics of L. m. mexicana survived better in explanted murine macrophages than promastigotes from mid-log phase cultures. The latter forms, however, attached in greater numbers to macrophages and, in the case of L. major, also more became intracellular. Only a small percentage of the macrophages infected with(More)
Metacyclic forms of Leishmania major and putative metacyclics of L. mexicana mexicana were found to occur in abundance in stationary phase cultures. These forms have been compared in several ways with promastigotes from mid-log phase cultures and, in the case of L. m. mexicana, amastigotes. Metacyclics are smaller, contain less protein and appear more(More)
The parasitic protozoon Trichomonas vaginalis produces multiple forms of cysteine proteinase (CP). The molecular basis for this has now been examined by cloning DNA fragments encoding CPs. Using generic degenerate oligonucleotide primers based on two well-conserved regions within the central region of all eukaryotic CPs, several polymerase chain reaction(More)
Leishmania donovani promastigotes constitutively secrete a glycosylated and phosphorylated acid phosphatase activity. This secretory acid phosphatase (SAcP) was purified from L. donovani culture supernatants and amino-acid sequence was obtained from both the N-terminus and a tryptic peptide fragment derived from the isolated protein. A polymerase chain(More)
The cattle protozoan parasite Tritrichomonas foetus has multiple forms of cysteine proteinases. To investigate their diversity, PCR and reverse transcriptase PCR were used to isolate genomic DNA and cDNA fragments, respectively, encoding different cysteine proteinases. Seven genes have been identified, TFCP3-6 from amplification of genomic DNA and TFCP7-9(More)
Luminometry has been used to measure the respiratory burst of rabbit peritoneal neutrophils that is elicited by different forms and species of Leishmania and Herpetomonas. Mid-log phase and metacyclic promastigotes of L. major evoked large responses; that due to metacyclics was lower and slower, but they also bound in smaller numbers than mid-log phase(More)
