    • 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 ...

    • Characterization of the infective properties of a new genetic group of Trypanosoma cruzi associated with bats 

      Maeda, Fernando Yukio [UNIFESP]; Alves, Renan Melatto [UNIFESP]; Cortez, Cristian [UNIFESP]; Lima, Fabio Mitsuo [UNIFESP]; Yoshida, Nobuko [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2011-12-01)
      A new genotype of Trypanosoma cruzi, associated with bats from anthropic areas, was recently described. Here we characterized a T. cruzi strain from this new genetic group, which could be a potential source of infection ...

    • Mammalian cell invasion by closely related Trypanosoma species T. dionisii and T. cruzi 

      Maeda, Fernando Yukio; Cortez, Cristian; Alves, Renan Melatto; Yoshida, Nobuko [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2012-02-01)
      Protozoan parasites of the genus Trypanosoma can infect virtually all mammalian species. Within this genus, Trypanosoma dionisii from bats and Trypanosoma cruzi that causes Chagas' disease, belonging to the subgenus ...

    • Participação das proteínas ezrina, radixina e moesina (ERM proteins) na invasão celular por amastigotas extracelulares de Trypanosoma cruzi 

      Ferreira, Éden Ramalho de Araujo [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2016-11-30)
      The protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi is the causative agent of Chagas? disease that affects 6-7 million people worldwide, mostly in the South and Central America. Chagas? disease was responsible for 76% of all deaths ...

    • Serotypes, virulence markers and cell invasion ability of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli strains isolated from healthy dairy cattle 

      Gonzalez, Alice Gonçalves Martins; Cerqueira, Aloysio de Mello Figueiredo; Guth, Beatriz Ernestina Cabilio [UNIFESP]; Coutinho, Cesar Augusto de Souza; Liberal, Maira Halfen Teixeira; Souza, Rossiane de Moura; Andrade, João Ramos da Costa (Wiley-Blackwell, 2016)
      AimThe occurrence of virulence markers, serotypes and invasive ability were investigated in Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) isolated from faecal samples of healthy dairy cattle at Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. ...

    • Unique behavior of Trypanosoma dionisii interacting with mammalian cells: Invasion, intracellular growth, and nuclear localization 

      Castro Oliveira, Miriam Pires de [UNIFESP]; Cortez, Mauro [UNIFESP]; Maeda, Fernando Yukio [UNIFESP]; Fernandes, Maria Cecilia [UNIFESP]; Haapalainen, Edna Freymuller [UNIFESP]; Yoshida, Nobuko [UNIFESP]; Mortara, Renato Arruda [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2009-04-01)
      The phylogenetic proximity between Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma (Schizotrypanum) dionisii suggests that these parasites might explore similar strategies to complete their life cycles. T, cruzi is the etiological agent ...
