Parasitism is a life strategy that has repeatedly evolved within the Florideophyceae. Historically, the terms adelphoparasite and alloparasite have been used to distinguish parasites based on the rela...
The plastid genomes of the non-photosynthetic plants Balanophora reflexa and B. laxiflora are among the most GC-biased genomes observed to date. A new study shows that ∼80% of the plastid-derived p...
Plant cells are characterized by a unique group of interconvertible organelles called plastids, which are descended from prokaryotic endosymbionts. The most studied plastid type is the chloroplast, ...
Plastids and mitochondria are thought to have originated from free-living cyanobacterial and alpha-proteobacterial ancestors, respectively, via endosymbiosis. Their evolutionary origins dictate that t...
Despite many efforts, the currently available treatments for leishmaniasis are not fully effective. To discover new medications, drug repurposing arises as a promising strategy. We present data that s...
The purpose of this pilot study is to test the feasibility and outcomes of a supportive group-based intervention, Authentic Connections, to be used for nurse leaders at Mayo Clinic, Roches...
This pilot clinical trial studies the use of the Enhancing Connections Program in improving communication between patients with incurable cancer and their children. The Enhancing Connectio...
Mechanisms of host immune response to intracellular protozoa will be investigated in patients with naturally acquired infection employing a variety of in-vitro techniques. Both non-specif...
This study designed as a randomized controlled split-mouth trial will be conducted at the Dental Clinic of the University of Valencia. The aim will be to assess differences in clinical, ra...
This study, conducted by the National Center for Malaria Control of Cambodia's Ministry of Health, the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the People's Republic of Chin...
A plant family of the order Santalales, subclass Rosidae, class Magnoliopsida. They are parasites that form connections (haustoria) to their hosts to obtain water and nutrients. The one-seeded fruit may be surrounded by a brightly colored nut-like structure.
The genetic complement of PLASTIDS as represented in their DNA.
The presence of parasites (especially malarial parasites) in the blood. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Invertebrate organisms that live on or in another organism (the host), and benefit at the expense of the other. Traditionally excluded from definition of parasites are pathogenic BACTERIA; FUNGI; VIRUSES; and PLANTS; though they may live parasitically.
A delusional disorder of belief in infestation by insects or other parasites. This FORMICATION is typically accompanied by dermatological manifestation such as PRURITUS that may lead to self-mutilation in order to remove the perceived parasites. It can be either primary or secondary to a somatic or psychiatric condition.
