Methyl Jasmonate: Putative Mechanisms of Action on Cancer Cells Cycle, Metabolism, and Apoptosis
Methyl jasmonate (MJ), an oxylipid that induces defense-related mechanisms in plants, has been shown to be active against cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo, without affecting normal cells. HereExpand

Lack of DNA methylation in Schistosoma mansoni.
Schistosoma mansoni genomic DNA from male and female adult worms was subjected to restriction by the isoschizomeric endonucleases HpaII and MspI, which display different sensitivities with respect toExpand

Inhibition of heme aggregation by chloroquine reduces Schistosoma mansoni infection.
Adult Schistosoma mansoni digest large amounts of host hemoglobin and release potentially toxic heme inside their guts. We have previously demonstrated that free heme in S. mansoni is detoxifiedExpand

Cloning the genes and DNA binding properties of High Mobility Group B1 (HMGB1) proteins from the human blood flukes Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma japonicum.
The parasitic helminth Schistosoma mansoni contains three HMGB proteins, HMGB1, HMGB2 and HMGB3, of primary amino acid sequences highly similar to vertebrate proteins. In this report we describe theExpand
