Conservation and diversification of small RNA pathways within flatworms
BackgroundSmall non-coding RNAs, including miRNAs, and gene silencing mediated by RNA interference have been described in free-living and parasitic lineages of flatworms, but only few key factors ofExpand

UTRme: A Scoring-Based Tool to Annotate Untranslated Regions in Trypanosomatid Genomes
Most signals involved in post-transcriptional regulatory networks are located in the untranslated regions (UTRs) of the mRNAs. Therefore, to deepen our understanding of gene expression regulation,Expand

Nuclear Compartmentalization Contributes to Stage-Specific Gene Expression Control in Trypanosoma cruzi
In the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, as in other trypanosomatids, transcription of protein coding genes occurs in a constitutive fashion, producing large polycistronic transcription units.Expand

High Throughput Approaches to Unravel the Mechanism of Action of a New Vanadium-Based Compound against Trypanosoma cruzi
Treatment for Chagas disease, a parasitosis caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, has always been based on two drugs, nifurtimox and benznidazole, despite the toxic side effects described after prolongedExpand

Upstream ORFs Influence Translation Efficiency in the Parasite Trypanosoma cruzi
It is generally accepted that the presence of ORFs in the 5′ untranslated region of eukaryotic transcripts modulates the production of proteins by controlling the translation initiation rate of theExpand

Compositional Analysis of Flatworm Genomes Shows Strong Codon Usage Biases Across All Classes
In the present work, we performed a comparative genome-wide analysis of 22 species representative of the main clades and lifestyles of the phylum Platyhelminthes. We selected a set of 700 orthologousExpand
