Evolution: Parallel Paths to Parasitism in the Apicomplexa.

A new study presents the first comprehensive genome and transcriptome data for an enigmatic group of apicomplexan parasites, the gregarines. The findings provide insights into the early evolution of p...

The diversity of microsporidian parasites infecting the Holarctic amphipod Gammarus lacustris from the Baikal region is dominated by the genus Dictyocoela.

Microsporidia are a highly diverse group of single-celled eukaryotic parasites related to fungi and infecting hosts belonging to all groups of eukaryotes, including some protists, invertebrate and ver...

Microsporidia with vertical transmission were likely shaped by nonadaptive processes.

Microsporidia have the leanest genomes among eukaryotes, and their physiological and genomic simplicity has been attributed to their intracellular, obligate parasitic lifestyle. However, not all micro...

Metabarcoding of eukaryotic parasite communities describes diverse parasite assemblages spanning the primate phylogeny.

Despite their ubiquity, in most cases little is known about the impact of eukaryotic parasites on their mammalian hosts. Comparative approaches provide a powerful method to investigate the impact of p...

Potential impacts of host specificity on zoonotic or interspecies transmission of Enterocytozoon bieneusi.

Microsporidia are composed of a highly diverse group of single-celled, obligate intracellular fungi that colonize an extremely wide range of other eukaryotes, among which Enterocytozoon bieneusi is th...

Application of Real-time PCR Platform for Detection of Vittaforma Corneae Among Patients With Microsporidia Keratitis

Diagnosis of patients with microsporiosis relies on pathological findings as well as laboratory detection of the causative organism. The conventional laboratory diagnosis of microsporiosis...

Clinical Investigation of Infections Due to Leishmanial Parasites

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...

Time to Infection With Malaria Parasites

This study will attempt to find out what effect mosquito insecticides have on the transmission of malaria in The Gambia. Eight hundred healthy men and women, aged 18 to 40 years, living in...

Preventing Chronic Lung Disease in Extremely Premature Infants

The purpose of this study is to determine if an investigational drug can reduce respiratory complications in extremely premature babies through 12 months corrected age (CA), as compared to...

Co-adaptation Between HIV and CD8 Cellular Immunity

Our objective here is to characterize the viral evolution and viral factors determining HIV virulence, the evolution of the HIV reservoir in PBMC and the co-evolution of anti-HIV CD8 T cel...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A phylum of fungi comprising minute intracellular PARASITES with FUNGAL SPORES of unicellular origin. It has two classes: Rudimicrosporea and MICROSPOREA.

The interdisciplinary science that studies evolutionary biology, including the origin and evolution of the major elements required for life, their processing in the interstellar medium and in protostellar systems. This field also includes the study of chemical evolution and the subsequent interactions between evolving biota and planetary evolution as well as the field of biology that deals with the study of extraterrestrial life.

Evolution at the molecular level of DNA sequences and proteins. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)

A group of compounds derived from unsaturated 20-carbon fatty acids, primarily arachidonic acid, via the cyclooxygenase pathway. They are extremely potent mediators of a diverse group of physiological processes.

The techniques used to produce molecules exhibiting properties that conform to the demands of the experimenter. These techniques combine methods of generating structural changes with methods of selection. They are also used to examine proposed mechanisms of evolution under in vitro selection conditions.
