Gene silencing by RNA interference in Sarcoptes scabiei: a molecular tool to identify novel therapeutic targets


Scabies is one of the most common and widespread parasitic skin infections globally, affecting a large range of mammals including humans, yet the molecular biology of Sarcoptes scabiei is astonishingly understudied. Research has been hampered primarily due to the difficulty of sampling or culturing these obligatory parasitic mites. A further and major… (More)
