Melanisation of Teladorsagia circumcincta larvae exposed to sunlight: a role for GTP-cyclohydrolase in nematode survival.


Trichostrongylid nematode parasites of livestock inhabit two very different niches during their life-cycle; within the host and free-living in the environment. UV radiation plays a significant role in the survival of free-living, pre-parasitic nematode larvae, with different species exhibiting differing levels of sensitivity. In many eukaryotes… (More)
