Proteinases have been found to play important roles in parasites. They are involved in developmental processes and facilitate invasion of host tissues as well as the digestion of host molecules for nutrition. The cysteine protease ER60 from Schistosoma mansoni, originally characterised in adults to be expressed in excretory organs, was analysed in larval stages. Transcripts were found in miracidia, in vitro generated mother sporocysts and cercariae. After cloning the promoter and terminator of… CONTINUE READING
