    Sammanfattning : Giardia intestinalis, the causative agent of the diarrheal disease giardiasis, is a protozoan parasite that colonizes the upper small intestine of mammals, including humans. It can be divided into eight genotypes or assemblages (A through H) and only assemblage A and B are infective to humans. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Inter and Intra-Assemblage Characterizations of Giardia intestinalis: from clinic to genome

    Sammanfattning : The protozoan parasite Giardia intestinalis (syn. G. lamblia, G. duodenalis) is one of the most common causes of diarrheal disease throughout the world, where an estimated 500 million people are infected annually. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies of Giardia-host interactions: role of cysteine-rich surface proteins

    Författare :Dimitra Peirasmaki; Staffan Svärd; Steven Singer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia; intestinal parasite; parasite infection; host-parasite interaction; virulence factors; HCMPs; cysteine-rich proteins; secretome; proteome;

    Sammanfattning : Giardia intestinalis is a eukaryotic parasite that colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals causing the diarrheal disease known as giardiasis. This parasite is not invasive and does not internalize into host cells but it rather attaches to the brush border surface of the small intestine disrupting the epithelial barrier. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Comparative Genomics in Diplomonads : Lifestyle Variations Revealed at Genetic Level

    Författare :Feifei Xu; Jan O. Andersson; Staffan G. Svärd; Matt Berriman; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : As sequencing technologies advance genome studies are becoming a basic tool for studying an organism, and with more genomes available comparative genomics is maturing into a powerful tool for biological research. This thesis demonstrates the strength of a comparative genomics approach on a group of understudied eukaryotes, the diplomonads. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. LÄS MER
