Plasmodium falciparum myosins: transcription and translation during asexual parasite development.
Six myosins genes are now annotated in the Plasmodium falciparum Genome Project. Malaria myosins have been named alphabetically; accordingly, we refer to the two latest additions as Pfmyo-E andExpand
The multiple myosins of malaria: The smallest malaria myosin, Plasmodium falciparum myosin-B (Pfmyo-B) is expressed in mature schizonts and merozoites
Myosins are motor proteins which, through interaction with filamentous actin, create movement. Multiple myosins have been identified in many of the apicomplexans, however, little is known regardingExpand
Intestinal parasitic infections and associated factors in children of three rural schools in Colombia. A cross-sectional study
Rural children are one of the populations that are most vulnerable to gastrointestinal parasite infections. Such diseases decrease the quality of life and result in growth and cognitive delays in theExpand
[Genotyping of the Plasmodium falciparum msp1 (block 2) and dhfr (codon 108) genes in field samples collected in four endemic Colombian localities].
INTRODUCTION Plasmodium falciparum is a highly polymorphic parasite, which allows it to evade the host's immune response, spread drug resistance and favours transmission. OBJECTIVES To analyse theExpand
Myosin B of Plasmodium falciparum (PfMyoB): in silico prediction of its three-dimensional structure and its possible interaction with MTIP
The mobility and invasion strategy of Plasmodium falciparum is governed by a protein complex known as the glideosome, which contains an actin-myosin motor. It has been shown that myosin A of theExpand
In vitro interaction between Plasmodium falciparum myosin B (PfMyoB) and myosin A tail interacting protein (MTIP)
Apicomplexan parasites, including Plasmodium falciparum, are obligate intracellular organisms that utilize a strategy termed “gliding” to move and invade host cells, causing disease. Gliding isExpand
Production of recombinant proteins from Plasmodium falciparum in Escherichia coli.
INTRODUCTION The production of recombinant proteins is essential for the characterization and functional study of proteins from Plasmodium falciparum. However, the proteins of P. falciparum are amongExpand
Systematic Comparison of Strategies to Achieve Soluble Expression of Plasmodium falciparum Recombinant Proteins in E. coli
Constructs containing partial coding sequences of myosin A, myosin B, and glideosome-associated protein (50 kDa) of Plasmodium falciparum were used to challenge several strategies designed in orderExpand
Multilocus genotyping of Giardia intestinalis in pet dogs of Medellín Colombia.
According to a few parasitological and epidemiological studies, Giardia is the most prevalent parasitic infection among pet dogs in the city of Medellín, the second-largest city in Colombia. ThisExpand
Background: Studies of human intestinal microbiota have focused mainly on bacteria and scarce information on how eukaryotic parasites fit in the gut context or its role in human health and disease.Expand
