Post-malaria neurological syndrome – a case of bilateral facial palsy after Plasmodium vivax malaria Key words Bilateral facial palsy – Plasmodium vivax – post-malaria neurological syndrome Background: Post-malaria neurological syndrome (PMNS) is defined as the acute onset of neurological or neuropsychiatric syndrome in a patient who had recently recovered(More)
Antisense transcription is pervasive among biological systems and one of the products of antisense transcription is natural antisense transcripts (NATs). Emerging evidences suggest that they are key regulators of gene expression. With the discovery of NATs in Plasmodium falciparum, it has been suggested that these might also be playing regulatory roles in(More)
Natural antisense transcripts (NATs) have been detected in many organisms and shown to regulate gene expression. Similarly, NATs have also been observed in malaria parasites with most studies focused on Plasmodium falciparum. There were no reports on the presence of NATs in Plasmodium vivax, which has also been shown to cause severe malaria like P.(More)
Malarial parasite P. falciparum, an apicomplexan protozoan has a 23.3 MB nuclear genome and encodes ~ 5600 transcripts. The genetic diversity of the parasite within and across geographical zones is a challenge to gene expression studies which are essential for understanding of disease process, outcome and developing markers for diagnostics and prognostics.(More)
