This study reports the molecular characterization and tissue expression of the non-human Aotus nancymaae primate CD1b isoform in the search for an experimental animal model to be used in evaluating the role of non-peptide antigen-presentation molecules in the immune response to infectious agents. CD1b expression on the surface of A. nancymaae peripheral(More)
Plasmodium falciparum sporozoite surface protein 2 (Pf SSP2), also called thrombospondin related anonymous protein (TRAP), is involved in the process of sporozoite invasion of hepatocytes. Pf SSP2/TRAP possesses two different adhesion domains sharing sequences and structural homology with von Willebrand factor A-domains and human repeat I thrombospondin(More)
Virulence and immunity are still poorly understood in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The H37Rv M. tuberculosis laboratory strain genome has been completely sequenced, and this along with proteomic technology represent powerful tools contributing toward studying the biology of target cell interaction with a facultative bacillus and designing new strategies for(More)
The separation and segregation of newly replicated bacterial chromosomes can be constrained by the formation of circular chromosome dimers caused by crossing over during homologous recombination events. In Escherichia coli and most bacteria, dimers are resolved to monomers by site-specific recombination, a process performed by two Chromosomally Encoded(More)
The development of the concept of health education has evolved. Man in good health is he who succeeds in adapting to the varying conditions in his environment (physical, biological, and psycho-social). To say that man sustains the changes in his physical environment does not mean he adapts well to his psychosocial environment, for the latter is much more(More)
