It was recently shown that schistosome extracts contain heat-shock factor (HSF) activity that correlates with the pattern of hsp70 mRNA levels at different developmental stages of the parasite (Levy-Holtzman and Schechter (1994) Parasitology 108, 35-42). To extend our understanding of the HSF activity revealed in extracts of Schistosoma mansoni (Sm), it was further analyzed by competition experiments and compared with the well characterized HSF of Drosophila melanogaster (Dm). The interactions… CONTINUE READING
