The high prevalence of toxoplasmosis and neosporosis in cattle affects the development of the livestock industry and is also an important infective source for human infection in Egypt.
Host cell lipids control cholesteryl ester synthesis and storage in intracellular Toxoplasma
This study demonstrated that T. gondii diverts cholesterol from low‐density lipoproteins for cholesteryl ester synthesis and storage in lipid bodies, and indicated that host lipids govern neutral lipid synthesis in Toxoplasma and that interference with mechanisms of host lipid storage is detrimental to parasite survival in mammalian cells.
Molecular and serological prevalence of Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina in cattle from central region of Syria.
Protective efficacy of vaccination by recombinant vaccinia virus against Neospora caninum infection.
Apical membrane antigen 1 is a cross-reactive antigen between Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii, and the anti-NcAMA1 antibody inhibits host cell invasion by both parasites.
Characterisation of Toxoplasma gondii engineered to express mouse interferon-gamma.
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays using recombinant TgSAG2 and NcSAG1 to detect Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum-specific antibodies in domestic animals in Turkey
Results indicated that T. gondii and N. caninum infections are prevalent in Turkish domestic animals.
Toxoplasma gondii: sensitive and rapid detection of infection by loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method.
In the Absence of Endogenous Gamma Interferon, Mice Acutely Infected with Neospora caninum Succumb to a Lethal Immune Response Characterized by Inactivation of Peritoneal Macrophages
It is indicated that early IFN-γ production has a crucial role in the activation of peritoneal macrophages for the induction of protective immune responses against Neospora caninum.
Toxoplasma gondii infection induces apoptosis in noninfected macrophages: role of nitric oxide and other soluble factors
Findings indicate that apoptosis in bystander host cells is due to the secretion of NO and other soluble factors released by parasite‐infected cells.
