Article
Full-text available
Commercial antigens used to diagnose human neurocysticercosis are obtained from either a soluble parasite extract or a parasite-derived glycoprotein fraction. The aim of the present study was to identify antigenic proteins as potential diagnostic candidates in Mozambique. Soluble proteins from Taenia solium cysticerci were separated by two-dimensio...
Article
Full-text available
Immunodiagnostic tests represent an important tool for diagnosis of cysticercosis, the disease caused by cysticerci of Taenia solium. Accurate diagnosis of neurocysticercosis (NCC) requires costly neuroimaging techniques (magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography), which are seldom affordable for people in endemic countries. Hence, new low...

Commercial antigens used to diagnose human neurocysticercosis (NCC) are obtained from either a soluble parasite extract or a parasite-derived glycoprotein fraction. The aim of the present study was to identify antigenic proteins as potential diagnostic candidates in this context. Soluble immunogenic proteins from Taenia solium cysticerci were ident...

Sequences from 1650 unique ESTs in fasta format. (2.04 MB DOC)
Data
Full-text available
Metabolic pathways and their mapped ESTs according to KEGG within the Blast2GO program. (2.00 MB PDF)
Data
Result from Blast2GO web based annotation program. Results are presented as hits with a score <10−5. Results are divided into C = Cellular component, F = Molecular function and P = Biological process. (0.48 MB XLS)
Data
Result from BLAST search with a score <10−5 of 1650 unique ESTs towards Taenia solium total ESTs at NCBI. (0.93 MB DOC)
Data
Result from BLAST search with a score <10−5 of 154 unique ESTs predicted to contain a signal peptide. (0.05 MB DOC)
Data
Result from KOBAS web based annotation program. Results are presented as hits with a score <10−5. Values in the column “Count and ratio” are divided into two rows per pathway. The top row corresponds to actual value. Bottom row corresponds to value in C. elegans for comparison. (0.48 MB DOC)
Data
Result from BLAST search with a score <10−5 of 1650 unique ESTs. (0.66 MB DOC)
Article
Full-text available
Neurocysticercosis is a disease caused by the oral ingestion of eggs from the human parasitic worm Taenia solium. Although drugs are available they are controversial because of the side effects and poor efficiency. An expressed sequence tag (EST) library is a method used to describe the gene expression profile and sequence of mRNA from a specific o...
Article
Previous kDNA polymorphism-based reports have revealed the existence of two Trypanosoma rangeli genotypes (KP1+ and KP1-): SL and SSU rRNA gene polymorphism-based studies have revealed that five genotypes (A-E) are distributed throughout different Latin-American countries. Some evidence has shown that the genotypes' biogeographical distribution is...
