Characterization of a New Begomovirus from Egypt Infecting Hollyhock (Althea Rosea)
A viral isolate from Egypt associated with symptoms of enations and leaf curling on hollyhock (Althea rosea) was characterized at the cytopathological and molecular levels. Microscopic observationsExpand
IN VITRO AND IN VIVO EFFECTS OF UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS ON SCHISTOSOMA MANSONI AND S. HAEMATOBIUM LUNG-STAGE LARVAE
Incubation of Schistosoma mansoni lung-stage larvae in 90% corn oil for 6 hr was shown to elicit exposure of their, otherwise masked, apical membrane antigens to binding of anti-schistosomeExpand
Transforming growth factor-beta and Th17 responses in resistance to primary murine schistosomiasis mansoni.
Discovery of the T-helper (Th) 17 cell lineage and functions in immune responses of mouse and man prompted us to investigate the role of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and interleukinExpand
Fasciola gigantica excretory-secretory products for immunodiagnosis and prevention of sheep fasciolosis.
Excretory-secretory products (ESP) products of ex vivo Fasciola gigantica adult worms were used for immunodiagnosis of sheep experimental infection with F. gigantica and natural infection withExpand
Nucleotide sequence evidence for three distinct sugarcane streak mastreviruses
Summary The complete sequences of four clones of sugarcane streak virus (SSV) isolates from Egypt and one SSV clone from Reunion island were determined. The four Egyptian genomes were highly similarExpand
Fasciola gigantica cathepsin L proteinase‐based synthetic peptide for immunodiagnosis and prevention of sheep fasciolosis
Sheep fasciolosis is a devastating burden for the livestock industry. We herein report on immunodiagnosis of fasciolosis, and significant protection of sheep against challenge infection with FasciolaExpand
In Vitro and In Vivo Activities of Arachidonic Acid against Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma haematobium
ABSTRACT The development of arachidonic acid (ARA) for treatment of schistosomiasis is an entirely novel approach based on a breakthrough discovery in schistosome biology revealing that activation ofExpand
Efficacy and mechanism of action of arachidonic acid in the treatment of hamsters infected with Schistosoma mansoni or Schistosoma haematobium.
We have recently shown that in vitro and in vivo exposure of Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma haematobium to 5-10mM arachidonic acid (ARA) induces parasite surface membrane disintegration andExpand
A new small RNA virus persistently infecting an established cell line of Galleria mellonella, induced by a heterologous infection.
A persistent infection in a Galleria mellonella cell line was revealed when infected with a maize stem borer picorna-like virus isolated on Sesamia cretica (MSBV). The new virus, completely differentExpand
