Heat shock and stress responses are documented for the first time in larval stages of the cestodes Taenia solium and Taenia crassiceps. Radioactive metabolic labelling after in vitro incubation of cysts at 43 °C, revealed the induction of heat shock proteins. In T. crassiceps, the major heat shock proteins were 80, 70 and 60 kDa. After prolonged incubation, a set of low molecular weight heat shock proteins (27, 31, 33 and 38 kDa), were also induced. In vitro incubation of cysts at 4 °C, induced… Expand
Taenia solium: characterization of a small heat shock protein (Tsol-sHSP35.6) and its possible relevance to the diagnosis and pathogenesis of neurocysticercosis.
TLDR
A cDNA encoding for a predicted small heat shock protein (sHSP), Tsol-sfISP35.6, has been isolated by antibody screening of a Taenia solium c-DNA library and was highly conserved, with a high sequence similarity with other platyhelminth sHSPs. Expand
Preliminary analysis of cold stress responsive proteins in Mesocestoides corti larvae.
TLDR
Under stress conditions, key molecules involved in metabolic pathways as well as in the growth and differentiation of the parasite can be identified and this work makes evident the high plasticity and resistance to extreme environmental conditions of these parasites at the molecular level. Expand
Cloning and characterization of the mitochondrial heat-shock protein 60 gene of Trichinella spiralis
TLDR
RT-PCR analysis indicated that thermal, cold, acidic and oxidative treatment did not elicit significant changes in the expression of mitochondrial hsp 60 in the larvae of Trichinella spiralis. Expand
Molecular Cloning, Characterization, and Expression Analysis of HSP60 in Mandarin Fish Siniperca chuatsi
TLDR
The role of fish HSP60 in embryogenesis and under stressful conditions is clarified, and its cDNA and gDNA structures, amino acid sequence features, and phylogenetic analysis, were described to contribute to further investigation to understand stress tolerance and disease resistance of mandarin fish. Expand
Proteomic study of activated Taenia solium oncospheres.
TLDR
Using liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry analysis, a set of oncospheral proteins involved in adhesion, protein folding, detoxification and proteolysis are identified and characterized by immunoblot and immunolocalization. Expand
Taenia solium proteins: a beautiful kaleidoscope of pro and anti-inflammatory antigens
TLDR
Due to varied make-up of VF and ESPs it can generate complex humoral and cellular immune response and hence unraveling of proteome of parasite antigens is needed for better understanding of host-parasite interactions. Expand
Budding of Taenia crassiceps Cysticerci In Vitro Is Promoted by Crowding in Addition to Hormonal, Stress, and Energy-Related Signals
TLDR
There is considerable intrinsic initial variation among inoculated cysts in their production of buds and that increasing parasite density (crowding) stimulates the overall production of bud and recruit into budding most of the cysts. Expand
The transcriptomic and proteomic responses of Daphnia pulex to changes in temperature and food supply comprise environment-specific and clone-specific elements
TLDR
The expression changes under acute stress can be interpreted as a switch from standard products of gene expression to stress-specific products, which allowed adequate proteomic responses under stress, including the initiation of resting egg production as an emergency reaction. Expand
Transcriptome analysis of Taenia solium cysticerci using Open Reading Frame ESTs (ORESTES)
TLDR
The set of sequences described here will contribute to deciphering the expression profile of this important parasite and will be informative for the genome assembly and annotation, as well as for studies of intra- and inter-specific sequence variability. Expand
The genomes of four tapeworm species reveal adaptations to parasitism
TLDR
An analysis of tapeworm genome sequences using the human-infective species Echinococcus multilocularis, E. granulosus, Taenia solium and the laboratory model Hymenolepis microstoma offers insights into the evolution of parasitism and identifies new potential drug targets. Expand

A cDNA expression library constructed from RNA derived from adult stage Brugia pahangi (mixed sexes) was screened with pooled sera from chronic, amicrofilaremic cases of human lymphatic filariasis from the Indonesian island of Tanjungpinang, where Brugi malayi is endemic, and showed antibody responses to hsc70 across the clinical spectrum offilariasis.

Heat-shock proteins, molecular chaperones, and the stress response: evolutionary and ecological physiology.
TLDR
This work discloses that expression of Hsps can occur in nature, all species have hsp genes but they vary in the patterns of their expression, and Hsp expression can be correlated with resistance to stress, and species' thresholds for HSP expression are correlated with levels of stress that they naturally undergo.
