It was established by cytophotometry that the amount of DNA in intestinal-epithelium cells rises from the diploid to a tetraploid level during the early postnatal ontogeny of ascarids so that eventually nuclei with a diploid quantity of DNA practically disappear. Apart from this, there appear cells with a higher DNA content: 8c, 16c, 32c, and even 64c. Pictures of anomalous mitotic processes, as well as polypoid meta- and anaphases, were also observed. A result of the polyploidization is an… Expand
Endoreplication in the ovary, testis, and intestine of Strongyloides stercoralis.
During development of the free-living adults of the human parasitic nematode Stronglyoides stercoralis, cells in certain tissues grow by endoreplication in which rounds of DNA replication occurExpand
mRNA sequences for Haemonchus contortus intestinal cathepsin B-like cysteine proteases display an extreme in abundance and diversity compared with other adult mammalian parasitic nematodes.
TLDR
Sequence comparisons suggested high potential for antigenic diversity among CBL proteins, which is relevant to vaccine strategies, and the extreme abundance and diversity of intestinal cbl transcripts appear to be relative specializations for H. contortus. Expand
Omics Driven Understanding of the Intestines of Parasitic Nematodes
The biological and molecular complexity of nematodes has impeded research on development of new therapies for treatment and control. We have focused on the versatility of the nematode intestine as aExpand
Cathepsin B-like cysteine proteases and Caenorhabditis elegans homologues dominate gene products expressed in adult Haemonchus contortus intestine.
TLDR
The ESTs identified intestinal genes with potential application to immune control, understanding of basic intestinal regulatory processes and refinement of nematode genomic resources. Expand
