Abstract Giardia duodenalis isolates from asymptomatic or symptomatic patients and from animals present similarities and differences in the protein composition, antigenic profile, pattern of proteases and isoenzymes, as well as in nucleic acids analysis.In the present overview, these differences and similarities are reviewed with emphasis in the host-parasite interplay and possible mechanisms of virulence of the protozoon.

Os isolados de Giardia duodenalis de indivíduos assintomáticos, de pacientes e de animais apresentam diferenças e semelhanças em sua composição protéica, expressão de antígenos, proteases e isoenzimas, assim como na constituição dos ácidos nucléicos.A presente revisão analisa estas diferenças com ênfase na interação parasita e hospedeiro, e nos possíveis mecanismos de virulência do protozoário.
