Invertebrate ligand-gated chloride channels are well recognized as important targets for several insecticides and anthelmintics. Hco-UNC-49 is a GABA-gated chloride channel from the parasitic(More)
Ion channels are targets for many drugs including insecticides and anthelminthic agents such as ivermectin (IVM) and moxidectin (MOX). IVM has been shown to activate glutamate-gated chloride channels(More)
We have identified two genes from the parasitic nematode Haemonchus contortus, Hco-unc-49B and Hco-unc-49C that encode two GABA-gated chloride channel subunits. Electrophysiological analysis revealed(More)
Haemonchus contortus, a parasitic nematode of great economic importance, is a major challenge for the livestock industries. The parasite is controlled by nematocidal drugs, several of which target(More)
