The seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii was examined in adult women and domestic animals used for meat products from the Mymensingh District, Bangladesh. Cattle, goats and sheep showed a high seroprevalence (12, 32 and 40%, respectively), while the sera from all fifteen women examined in the same area were seronegative. Considering that primary infection in(More)
To recognize the stage conversion of Toxoplasma gondii between tachyzoite and bradyzoite in live host cells, a transgenic T. gondii line, which expressed stage-specific red and green fluorescence, was constructed. T. gondii PLK strain tachyzoites were stably transformed with genes encoding red fluorescent protein (DsRed Express) and green fluorescent(More)
Bovine abortion caused by the Apicomplexan parasite Neospora caninum is a major economic problem in the livestock industry worldwide. Our study measured the prevalence and temporal changes in levels of antibodies specific for two N. caninum derived antigens, NcSAG1 and NcGRA7, to determine an appropriate strategy for serodiagnosis. Using an enzyme-linked(More)
The intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii is thought to disseminate throughout the host by circulation of tachyzoite-infected leukocytes in the blood, and adherence and migration of such leukocytes into solid tissues. However, it is unclear whether T. gondii-infected leukocytes can migrate to solid organs via the general circulation. In this study, we(More)
Recently we reported that a chimeric molecule containing mouse transferrin receptor and immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) Fc, mTR-Fc, induced higher immune responses and can be used as a vaccine adjuvant. In this study, the immunological property of the molecule was investigated. Although, the mTR-Fc did not activate complement classical pathway, it was recognized(More)
Intracellular pathogens have numerous strategies for effective dissemination within the host. Many intracellular pathogens first infect leukocytes, which they use as a vehicle to transport them to target organs. Once at the target organ, intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii can cross the capillary wall in extracellular form by infecting endothelial(More)
Babesia gibsoni (B. gibsoni) is a tick-borne hemoprotozoan parasite, which causes piroplasmosis in dogs. Diagnosis of canine babesiosis is commonly carried out using Giemsa-stained thin blood smears. However, at low levels of infection, it is difficult to detect Babesia organisms by observation of Giemsa-stained thin blood smears. We constructed a(More)
