The invasion and replication of Eimeria tenella in the chicken intestine is responsible for avian coccidiosis, a disease that has major economic impacts on poultry industries worldwide. E. tenella is transmitted to naïve animals via shed unsporulated oocysts that need contact with air and humidity to form the infectious sporulated oocysts, which contain the(More)
Aminopeptidases N are metalloproteases of the M1 family that have been reported in numerous apicomplexan parasites, including Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Cryptosporidium, and Eimeria. While investigating the potency of aminopeptidases as therapeutic targets against coccidiosis, one of the most important avian diseases caused by the genus Eimeria, we identified(More)
Human poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase (PARP) was expressed in the yeast line JEL1 under the control of a GAL promoter. Proteins were extracted and human recombinant PARP purified to apparent homogeneity. The pharmacological profile of this human enzyme was characterised in terms of the effects of known inhibitors of PARP belonging to various chemical families(More)
