Interactive transcriptome analysis of malaria patients and infecting Plasmodium falciparum.
To understand the molecular mechanisms of parasitism in vivo, it is essential to elucidate how the transcriptomes of the human hosts and the infecting parasites affect one another. Here we report theExpand
Perturbation of copper homeostasis is instrumental in early developmental arrest of intraerythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum
BackgroundMalaria continues to be a devastating disease. The elucidation of factors inducing asexual growth versus arrest of Plasmodium falciparum can provide information about the development of theExpand
High-Resolution Characterization of Toxoplasma gondii Transcriptome with a Massive Parallel Sequencing Method†
For the last couple of years, a method that permits the collection of precise positional information of transcriptional start sites (TSSs) together with digital information of the gene-expressionExpand
Giardia lamblia Transcriptome Analysis Using TSS-Seq and RNA-Seq
Giardia lamblia is a protozoan parasite that is found worldwide and has both medical and veterinary importance. We applied the transcription start sequence (TSS-seq) and RNA sequence (RNA-seq)Expand
Full-parasites: database of full-length cDNAs of apicomplexa parasites, 2010 update
Full-Parasites (http://fullmal.hgc.jp/) is a transcriptome database of apicomplexa parasites, which include Plasmodium and Toxoplasma species. Expand
Plasmodium falciparum: differing effects of non-esterified fatty acids and phospholipids on intraerythrocytic growth in serum-free medium.
Different combinations of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) had variable effects on intraerythrocytic growth of Plasmodium falciparum. All stages of the parasite cultured in medium supplemented withExpand
Molecular factors that are associated with early developmental arrest of intraerythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum.
Malaria continues to be a devastating disease. We investigated the factors that control intraerythrocytic development of the parasite Plasmodium falciparum by using a chemically defined medium (CDM)Expand
Allovahlkampfia spelaea Causing Keratitis in Humans
Background Free-living amoebae are present worldwide. They can survive in different environment causing human diseases in some instances. Acanthamoeba sp. is known for causing sight-threateningExpand
IL-25, IL-33 and TSLP receptor are not critical for development of experimental murine malaria
IL-25, IL-33 and TSLP, which are produced predominantly by epithelial cells, can induce production of Th2-type cytokines such as IL-4, IL-5 and/or IL-13 by various types of cells, suggesting theirExpand
