ESTs constitute rapid and informative tools with which to study gene-expression profiles of the diverse stages of the schistosome life cycle. Following a comprehensive EST study of adult worms, analysis has now targeted the cercaria, the parasite larval form responsible for infection of the vertebrate host. Two Schistosoma mansoni cercarial cDNA libraries were examined and partial sequence obtained from 957 randomly selected clones. On the basis of database searches, 551 (57.6%) ESTs generated… CONTINUE READING
