Ribosome profiling reveals translation control as a key mechanism generating differential gene expression in Trypanosoma cruzi
BackgroundDue to the absence of transcription initiation regulation of protein coding genes transcribed by RNA polymerase II, posttranscriptional regulation is responsible for the majority of geneExpand

Trypanosoma cruzi: molecular characterization of TcPUF6, a Pumilio protein.
In trypanosomes regulation of gene expression occurs mainly at the post-transcriptional level. Pumilio proteins are RNA-binding proteins that modulate gene expression in lower and higher eukaryotes.Expand

A Novel Terminal-Repeat Retrotransposon in Miniature (TRIM) Is Massively Expressed in Echinococcus multilocularis Stem Cells
Taeniid cestodes (including the human parasites Echinococcus spp. and Taenia solium) have very few mobile genetic elements (MGEs) in their genome, despite lacking a canonical PIWI pathway. The MGEsExpand
