    • Characterization of a 21 kDa protein from Trypanosoma cruzi associated with mammalian cell invasion 

      Silva, Claudio V. da [UNIFESP]; Kawashita, Silvia Y. [UNIFESP]; Probst, Christian M.; Dallagiovanna, Bruno; Cruz, Mario C. [UNIFESP]; Silva, Erika A. da [UNIFESP]; Souto-Padron, Thais C. B. S.; Krieger, Marco A.; Goldenberg, Samuel; Briones, Marcelo R. S. [UNIFESP]; Andrews, Norma W.; Mortara, Renato A. [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2009-04-01)
      Trypanosoma cruzi genomic database was screened for hypothetical proteins that showed high probability of being secreted or membrane anchored and thus, likely involved in host-cell invasion. A sequence that codes for a 21 ...

    • Distinct genomic organization, mRNA expression and cellular localization of members of two amastin sub-families present in Trypanosoma cruzi 

      Kangussu-Marcolino, Monica Mendes; Paiva, Rita Marcia Cardoso de; Araujo, Patricia Rosa; Mendonca-Neto, Rondon Pessoa de; Lemos, Laiane; Bartholomeu, Daniella Castanheira; Mortara, Renato Arruda [UNIFESP]; Da Rocha, Wanderson Duarte; Teixeira, Santuza Maria Ribeiro (Biomed Central Ltd, 2013-01-17)
      Background: Amastins are surface glycoproteins (approximately 180 residues long) initially described in Trypanosoma cruzi as particularly abundant during the amastigote stage of this protozoan parasite. Subsequently, they ...

    • Role of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis amastigote glycosphingolipids in macrophage infectivity 

      Tanaka, Améria Kaori [UNIFESP]; Gorin, Philip Albert James; Takahashi, Helio Kiyoshi [UNIFESP]; Straus, Anita Hilda [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2007-06-01)
      The role of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) present in amastigote forms of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis during infection of macrophages was analyzed, with particular emphasis on GSLs presenting the terminal Galpß1-3Galpa ...
