Habitats, Dispersion and Invasion of Sylvatic Triatoma dimidiata (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) in Petén, Guatemala
Abstract Dispersion and invasion capacity of sylvatic populations of Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille) were investigated during 14 mo by means of experimental chicken coops installed in a nature reserveExpand

Epidemiology of Chagas disease in Guatemala: infection rate of Triatoma dimidiata, Triatoma nitida and Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) with Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli
A five-year domiciliary collection in the 22 departments of Guatemala showed that out of 4,128 triatomines collected, 1,675 were Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille, 1811), 2,344 were Rhodnius prolixusExpand

Antennal Phenotype of Triatoma dimidiata Populations and Its Relationship with Species of phyllosoma and protracta Complexes
Abstract Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille 1811) Reduviidae Triatominae is the main vector of Chagas disease in several countries of Latin America. As for other vector species, the characterization of T.Expand

Utility of the polymerase chain reaction in detection of Trypanosoma cruzi in Guatemalan Chagas' disease vectors.
For effective control programs, accurate assessment of Trypanosoma cruzi infection in vectors is essential and has traditionally been performed by microscopic examination. For particular vectors andExpand

The Chagas Vector, Triatoma dimidiata (Hemiptera:Reduviidae), is Panmictic within and Among Adjacent Villages in Guatemala
Abstract Trypanosoma cruzi, the hemoflagellate parasite and cause of Chagas disease in Latin America, is carried by Triatomine vectors, principally Triatoma dimidiata and Rhodnius prolixus in CentralExpand

A Preliminary Assessment of Genetic Differentiation of Triatoma dimidiata (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in Guatemala by Random Amplification of Polymorphic DNA-Polymerase Chain Reaction
Abstract The population genetics of Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille, 1811) from five different provinces in Guatemala, including three sylvan and three domestic populations, was investigated by randomExpand

In vitro binding of several cell-specific and ubiquitous nuclear proteins to the GT-I motif of the SV40 enhancer.
We have investigated the specific in vitro binding of nuclear proteins from several cell lines to the GT-I motif of the SV40 enhancer which overlaps with the canonical enhancer "core" homology. TheExpand

Incidence of Trypanosoma cruzi infection in two Guatemalan communities.
The prevalence of human infection by Trypanosoma cruzi was assessed using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in a serological survey in 1998 of 2 rural communities (SMH and PS) inExpand

The SV40 TC‐II(kappa B) enhanson binds ubiquitous and cell type specifically inducible nuclear proteins from lymphoid and non‐lymphoid cell lines.
We have characterized the complexes resulting from the specific binding in vitro of proteins present in nuclear extracts of several lymphoid and non‐lymphoid cell lines to the TC‐I and TC‐IIExpand
