Deep sequencing of Trichomonas vaginalis during the early infection of vaginal epithelial cells and amoeboid transition.
The human pathogen Trichomonas vaginalis has the largest protozoan genome known, potentially encoding approximately 60,000 proteins. To what degree these genes are expressed is not well known andExpand

The biology of Trichomonas vaginalis in the light of urogenital tract infection.
The human pathogen Trichomonas vaginalis is a parasitic protist. It is a representative of the eukaryotic supergroup Excavata that includes a few other protist parasites such as Leishmania,Expand

The actin‐based machinery of Trichomonas vaginalis mediates flagellate‐amoeboid transition and migration across host tissue
Trichomonas vaginalis is the most widespread non‐viral pathogen of the human urogenital tract, infecting ∼ 3% of the world's population annually. At the onset of infection the protist changesExpand

The parasite Trichomonas vaginalis expresses thousands of pseudogenes and long non-coding RNAs independently from functional neighbouring genes
BackgroundThe human pathogen Trichomonas vaginalis is a parabasalian flagellate that is estimated to infect 3% of the world’s population annually. With a 160 megabase genome and up to 60,000 genesExpand

Charakterisierung von Zytoskelett-assoziierten Proteinen bei der amöboiden Umwandlung des Humanpathogens Trichomonas vaginalis
Das Zytoskelett ist masgeblich an der mechanischen Stabilitat, der aktiven Bewegung, der Form und Transporte innerhalb der Zelle beteiligt. Es stellt ein dynamisches System an unterschiedlichenExpand
