Proteomic analysis of Fasciola hepatica excretory‐secretory products
TLDR
It is suggested that the relative abundance and protective nature of the components of the ES products of this organism play an important role in its survival within the host. Expand

TLDR
Thermal hysteresis proteins represent a remarkable example of parallel and convergent evolution with different proteins being adapted for an anti-freeze role. Expand
The effect of birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) and chicory (Cichorium intybus) on parasite intensities and performance of lambs naturally infected with helminth parasites.
TLDR
The results support the contention that alternative forages could have a positive role in the control of helminth parasites in sheep, subject to successful agronomic development and integration of these forages into whole farm systems. Expand
Echinococcus granulosus antigen B hydrophobic ligand binding properties.
TLDR
The results suggest that AgB might have evolved different functions in the binding of hydrophobic compounds, dependent on cestode environment. Expand
The effect of dietary forage on the development and survival of helminth parasites in ovine faeces.
TLDR
Investigation of the hypothesis that the consumption of forages does not affect the hatching and development of helminth eggs in the faeces subsequently produced by the host animal showed that forage diet had no effect on egg hatchability but significantly affected the development/survival of infective Helminth larvae in the Faeces of the hostAnimal.

Histidine-rich protein of the keratohyalin granules. Source of the free amino acids, urocanic acid and pyrrolidone carboxylic acid in the stratum corneum.
The pool of free amino acids, urocanic acid and pyrrolidone carboxylic acid in mammalian stratum corneum has been shown to be derived principally or totally from the histidine-rich protein of theExpand
Glutathione transferase in helminths.
The helminth glutathione (GSH) transferases are present as isoenzymes but fail to show a clear biochemical homology to any of the three mammalian GSH transferase families. GSH transferase is one ofExpand
Anti-schistosomal Intervention Targets Identified by Lifecycle Transcriptomic Analyses
TLDR
A combinatorial, bioinformatics-led approach, employing both statistical and network analyses of transcriptomic data, for identifying new immunoprophylactic and therapeutic lead targets to combat schistosomiasis, highlighting key transcriptional programs associated with lifecycle progression. Expand
Ice-active proteins from the Antarctic nematode Panagrolaimus davidi.
TLDR
The Antarctic nematode Panagrolaimus davidi has an ice-active protein that shows recrystallization inhibition but no thermal hysteresis, which could have important functions in the survival of intracellular freezing by this organism by controlling the stability of ice after its formation. Expand
