Identification and characterization of three Encephalitozoon cuniculi strains.
Microsporidia are increasingly recognized as causing opportunistic infections in immunocompromised individuals. Encephalitozoon cuniculi is probably the most studied mammalian microsporidian thatExpand

Small Subunit Ribosomal DNA Phylogeny of Various Microsporidia with Emphasis on AIDS Related Forms
ABSTRACT. Phylogenetic analysis of the small subunit ribosomal DNA of a broad range of representative microsporidia including five species from humans (Enterocytozoon bieneusi, Nosema corneum,Expand

Establishment, viral susceptibility and biological characteristics of a swine kidney cell line SK-6.
Summary A swine kidney cell line (SK-6), established from a 6-month-old female pig, was subcultured 200 times during a period of 6 years. The cultural pattern was epithelioid. The chromosomeExpand

Microsporidiosis in mammals.
Microsporidia are small, single-celled, obligately intracellular parasites that have caused significant agricultural losses and interference with biomedical research. Interest in the microsporidia isExpand

Biology of microsporidian species infecting mammals.
Microsporidia (phylum Microspora) are obligate intracellular protozoan parasites that infect a wide range of vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. Over 1000 species have been classified intoExpand

Mechanisms of resistance to the intracellular protozoan Encephalitozoon cuniculi in mice.
Mechanisms of resistance to the obligate intracellular protozoan Encephalitozoon cuniculi were studied in BALB/c mice. Resistance to lethal disease was T cell-dependent because transfer ofExpand

Ribosomal Dna Sequences of Encephalitozoon Hellem and Encephalitozoon Cuniculi: Species Identification and Phylogenetic Construction
ABSTRACT. A segment of ribosomal DNA, about 1,350 base pairs long, was amplified from the microsporidian species Encephalitozoon hellem, isolated from AIDS patients, and Encephalitozoon cuniculi. theExpand

Murine encephalitozoonosis model for studying the host-parasite relationship of a chronic infection.
Encephalitozoon cuniculi caused chronic nonlethal infections in euthymic BALB/cAnN mice, whereas athymic BALB/cAnN-nu mice died from infection. Specific, anamnestic, transferable, and acquiredExpand

Isolation of a microsporidian from a human patient.
Several genera of microsporidia have been identified morphologically in human tissue but none has yet been propagated in vitro. These primitive, obligate intracellular parasitic protozoa are poorlyExpand
