The variant surface glycoprotein (VSG) and procyclin are the respective major surface antigens of the bloodstream and the procyclic forms of Trypanosoma brucei. These proteins and their mRNAs are both the most abundant and absolutely characteristic of their respective life cycle stages. We show that the 3'-terminal region of these mRNAs regulates expression(More)
Object-based coding of audio represents the signal as a parameter stream for a set of sound-producing objects. Encoding in this manner can provide a resolution-free representation of an audio signal. Given a robust estimation of the object-parameters and a multi-resolution synthesis engine, the signal can be “intelligently” upsampled, extending the(More)
Ixodid ticks manipulate mammalian host pathways by secreting molecules from salivary glands. Novel cDNAs containing functional secretion signals were isolated from ixodid tick salivary glands using a signal sequence trap. Only 15/61 Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and 1/7 Amblyomma variegatum cDNAs had significant identity (< 1e-15) to previously identified(More)
