Giardia and Entamoeba parasites encase themselves in a carbohydrate-rich cyst for travel from host to host. Both parasites upregulate their Golgi apparatus during this process, yielding organelles that are now found to be similar to those of higher eukaryotes. In fact, unusual enzymes and...
Studies of the pathogenesis of neurobehavioral diseases following Borna disease virus infections have been increasing rapidly over the past ten years. Recent major advances have included a report of vertical transmission of the virus in its natural host, the horse, and a report of isolation of a...
A novel trypanosome lytic factor (TLF) has been characterized that protects humans from infection by Trypanosoma brucei brucei. The mechanism of trypanolysis is unknown; contrary to one hypothesis, TLF does not kill trypanosomes by generating oxygen radicals. However, these trypanosomes become...
Gaining information on global gene function in fungal plant pathogens through analysis of expressed sequences is a valuable step towards understanding the overall metabolism and biology underlying the pathogenic habit. Such large-scale gene-finding exercises are poised to provide many useful...
Inoculation of mice with most neurotropic strains of the coronavirus mouse hepatitis virus results in an immune response-mediated demyelinating disease that serves as an excellent animal model for the human disease multiple sclerosis. Recent work has shown that either virus-specific CD4 + or CD8...
Chloroquine resistance in Plasmodium falciparum has recently been shown to result from mutations in the novel vacuolar transporter, PfCRT. Field studies have demonstrated the importance of these mutations in clinical resistance. Although a pfcrt ortholog has been identified in Plasmodiumvivax ,...
Imaging plays a unique role in fungal cell biology and phytopathology by allowing for the documentation of molecular structure in individual fixed and living cells. Advances in fluorescence laser techniques, including confocal and multiphoton microscopy, are opening new avenues for cellular...
