Biology of Zika Virus Infection in Human Skin Cells
ABSTRACT Zika virus (ZIKV) is an emerging arbovirus of the Flaviviridae family, which includes dengue, West Nile, yellow fever, and Japanese encephalitis viruses, that causes a mosquito-borne diseaseExpand
Parasitic manipulation: where are we and where should we go?
How a parasite (or its offspring) moves from onehost to the next remains a central topic in parasitol-ogy. Understanding such strategies is at the heart ofapplied aspects of parasitology, but it isExpand
International Variability of Ages at Menarche and Menopause: Patterns and Main Determinants
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to review published studies on the variability of age at menarche and age at menopause throughout the world, and to identify the main causes for age variation inExpand
Host manipulation by parasites: a multidimensional phenomenon
Th e diversity of ways in which parasites manipulate the phenotype of their hosts to increase their transmission has been well-documented during the past decades. Parasites clearly have the potentialExpand
Invasion of the body snatchers: the diversity and evolution of manipulative strategies in host-parasite interactions.
Parasite-induced alteration of host behaviour is a widespread transmission strategy among pathogens. Understanding how it works is an exciting challenge from both a mechanistic and an evolutionaryExpand
The ecological significance of manipulative parasites.
The diversity of ways in which host manipulation by parasites interferes with ecological and evolutionary processes governing biotic interactions has been recently documented, and indicates thatExpand
Do hairworms (Nematomorpha) manipulate the water seeking behaviour of their terrestrial hosts?
Several anecdotal reports in the literature have suggested that insects parasitized by hairworms (Nematomorpha) commit `suicide' by jumping into an aquatic environment needed by an adult worm for theExpand
Behind the scene, something else is pulling the strings: emphasizing parasitic manipulation in vector-borne diseases.
Merging the field of epidemiology with those of evolutionary and behavioural ecology can generate considerable fundamental knowledge, as well as help to guide public health policies. An attempt isExpand
Who is the puppet master? Replication of a parasitic wasp-associated virus correlates with host behaviour manipulation
Many parasites modify their host behaviour to improve their own transmission and survival, but the proximate mechanisms remain poorly understood. An original model consists of the parasitoidExpand
