Neglected tropical diseases affect the lives of one-sixth of the world population, being characteristic of the poorest populations. They are seventeen infectious diseases caused by various pathogens such as bacteria, worms, helminths and protozoa. Those caused by trypanosomatid protozoa, such as African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), leishmaniasis and American trypanosomiasis (Cha...
The Ki-1/57 protein has been discovered through the cross reactivity of the monoclonal antibody Ki-1 in Hodgkin lymphoma cells. Previous studies described features common to onco-proteins and yeast two-hybrid assays identified protein interaction partners of Ki-1/57 related to transcriptional control and RNA metabolism. Several of Ki-1/57 interacting partners are proteins from the p53 ...
The protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi is an important zoonotic pathogen which causes Chagas disease. The genetic complexity of T. cruzi, as well as the limited set of efficient techniques for genome engineering, have contributed to the lack of progress in understanding and studying this pathogen. The CRISPR-Cas9 system has been adapted as a powerful tool for genome manipulation in T....
