Cyclosporin A (CsA) nonimmunosuppressive analogs were evaluated against Trypanosoma cruzi and on TcCyP19, a cyclophilin of 19 kDa. Two out of eight CsA analogs, H-7-94 and F-7-62 showed the best… Expand
Analysis of the Trypanosoma cruzi cyclophilin gene family and identification of Cyclosporin A binding proteins.
The Trypanosoma cruzi cyclophilin gene family comprises 15 paralogues whose nominal masses vary from 19 to 110 kDa, namely TcCyP19, TcCyP20, TcCyP21, TcCyP22, TcCyP24, TcCyP25, TcCyP26, TcCyP28,… Expand
Anti-Trypanosoma cruzi effects of cyclosporin A derivatives: possible role of a P-glycoprotein and parasite cyclophilins.
Cyclophilins are target molecules for cyclosporin A (CsA), an immunosuppressive antimicrobial drug. We have previously reported the in vitro anti-Trypanosoma cruzi activity of H-7-94 and F-7-62… Expand

The parvulin family of peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (PPIases) catalyzes the cis/trans isomerization of the peptide bonds preceding Pro residues. Eukaryotic parvulin-type PPIases have been… Expand
Proteinase and gelatinolytic properties of a Triatoma infestans extract.

An extract of Triatoma infestans has previously been demonstrated to produce specific IgG and IgE both in animals and in atopic humans with rhinitis/asthma as well as hypersensitivity pneumonitis in… Expand
Recombinant antibody against Trypanosoma cruzi from patients with chronic Chagas heart disease recognizes mammalian nervous system.
BACKGROUND To deeply understand the role of antibodies in the context of Trypanosoma cruzi infection, we decided to characterize A2R1, a parasite antibody selected from single-chain variable fragment… Expand
Colchicine treatment reversibly blocks cytokinesis but not mitosis in Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes
This work analyzes the effect of the alkaloid colchicine on the growth of Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes, using immunofluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry techniques. We found that colchicine… Expand
Transcriptome-wide analysis of the Trypanosoma cruzi proliferative cycle identifies the periodically expressed mRNAs and their multiple levels of control
Trypanosoma cruzi is the protozoan parasite causing American trypanosomiasis or Chagas disease, a neglected parasitosis with important human health impact in Latin America. The efficacy of current… Expand
Characterization of TcCYC6 from Trypanosoma cruzi, a gene with homology to mitotic cyclins.

Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiologic agent of Chagas disease, is a protozoan parasite with a life cycle that alternates between replicative and non-replicative forms, but the components and mechanisms… Expand
