Assembly of the cytosolic coat protein I (COPI) complex at the ER-Golgi interface is directed by the ADP ribosylation factor1 (Arf1) and its guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GBF1). Rab1b GTPase modulates COPI recruitment, but the molecular mechanism underlying this action remains unclear. Our data reveal that in vivo expression of the GTP-restricted(More)
The Bolivian Chaco is part of the endemic region of Chagas disease and an area where pyrethroid resistant Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) populations has been reported. The World Health Organization identified these resistant populations as an important focus for research. The objective of this study was to evaluate the residual effect of a(More)
Rab1b belongs to the Rab-GTPase family that regulates membrane trafficking and signal transduction systems able to control diverse cellular activities, including gene expression. Rab1b is essential for endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi transport. Although it is ubiquitously expressed, its mRNA levels vary among different tissues. This work aims to characterize(More)
The hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl-transferase (HPRT) deficiency is an inborn error of purine metabolism, responsible for classic Lesch-Nyhan disease and its neurological and hyperuricemic variants. We report a novel mutation in the HPRT gene, c.584A > C (Y195S), in two unrelated Argentine patients affected with the neurological variant with no HPRT(More)
In eukaryotic cells, proteins destined for secretion are translocated into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and packaged into so-called COPII-coated vesicles. In the ER exit sites (ERES), COPII has the capacity of deforming the lipid bilayer, where it modulates the selective sorting and concentration of cargo proteins. In this study, we analyze the(More)
We analyzed the variability of susceptibility to deltamethrin in putatively susceptible Triatoma infestans Klug (Hemiptera: Reduviidae), and evaluated the sample size implications on the hypotheses used in the current World Health Organization protocol for the measure of insecticide resistance in Triatominae. Following the protocol, using topical(More)
