Cloning and Characterization of Ancylostoma-secreted Protein
The developmentally arrested third stage infective larva of hookworms resumes development upon entry into the definitive host. This transition to parasitism can be modeled in vitro by stimulatingExpand

Ancylostoma secreted protein 2: cloning and characterization of a second member of a family of nematode secreted proteins from Ancylostoma caninum.
Invading infective third-stage larvae (L3) of parasitic nematodes execute a series of programmed developmental events in response to a host-specific signal encountered during infection. One of theseExpand

Hookworm larval infectivity, arrest and amphiparatenesis: the Caenorhabditis elegans Daf-c paradigm.
Arrested development dramatically alters the life history of some species of soil-transmitted nematodes and elicits profound variations in the epidemiology of the infections they cause. Here, PeterExpand

Ac-FAR-1, a 20 kDa fatty acid- and retinol-binding protein secreted by adult Ancylostoma caninum hookworms: gene transcription pattern, ligand binding properties and structural characterisation.
Antibody against adult Ancylostoma caninum excretory-secretory (ES) products was used to immunoscreen a cDNA expression library leading to the isolation of cDNAs encoding putative hookworm fatty-acidExpand

Identification of the nuclear receptor DAF-12 as a therapeutic target in parasitic nematodes
Nematode parasitism is a worldwide health problem resulting in malnutrition and morbidity in over 1 billion people. The molecular mechanisms governing infection are poorly understood. Here, we reportExpand

A common muscarinic pathway for diapause recovery in the distantly related nematode species Caenorhabditis elegans and Ancylostoma caninum.
Converging TGF-beta and insulin-like neuroendocrine signaling pathways regulate whether Caenorhabditis elegans develops reproductively or arrests at the dauer larval stage. We examined whetherExpand

Genome of the human hookworm Necator americanus
The hookworm Necator americanus is the predominant soil-transmitted human parasite. Adult worms feed on blood in the small intestine, causing iron-deficiency anemia, malnutrition, growth andExpand

Molecular characterisation of the Ancylostoma-secreted protein family from the adult stage of Ancylostoma caninum.
The Ancylostoma-secreted proteins are a family of nematode-specific cysteine-rich secreted proteins belonging to the pathogenesis-related protein superfamily. Previously we reported that third stageExpand

Genetic structure of populations of the human hookworm, Necator americanus, in China
Twenty‐one to 58 individual Necator americanus were sampled from each of four villages in south‐western China. Each nematode was sequenced for 588 bp of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I gene.Expand

Emerging patterns of hookworm infection: influence of aging on the intensity of Necator infection in Hainan Province, People's Republic of China.
We examined risk factors associated with Necator americanus infection among persons aged > or =50 years in Hainan Province, People's Republic of China. Age and sex made the most importantExpand
