  1. 1. Inter and Intra-Assemblage Characterizations of Giardia intestinalis: from clinic to genome

    Author : Johan Ankarklev; Staffan Svärd; Johanna P. Daily; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Giardia; protozoa; parasite infection; diarrhea; genome sequencing; comparative genomics; genotyping; ASH; MLG; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : The protozoan parasite Giardia intestinalis (syn. G. lamblia, G. duodenalis) is one of the most common causes of diarrheal disease throughout the world, where an estimated 500 million people are infected annually. READ MORE

  2. 2. Immunodominant proteins in giardia lamblia

    Author : Malin Weiland; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The protozoan parasite Giardia lamblia is a major cause of diarrhoea in humans and other mammals. Infection starts by ingestion of infectious cysts that excyst in the upper part of the small intestine and attach to intestinal epithelial cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adaptive responses during giardia-host interactions

    Author : Daniel Palm; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Giardia lamblia is a major cause of water-borne enteric disease. The parasite is a noninvasive, flagellated protozoan that inhabits the upper part of the small intestine of its vertebrate hosts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cell cycle and differentiation in Giardia Lamblia

    Author : David S Reiner; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Giardia lamblia is the major cause of waterborne diarrhea worldwide. Giardiasis is initiated by ingestion of cysts, which after passing through the stomach are triggered to excyst. Excystation, or awakening from dormancy, is central to successful colonization of the host. READ MORE

  5. 5. Comparative Cell Biology in Diplomonads

    Author : Elin Einarsson; Staffan Svärd; Scott Dawson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; intestinal parasite; hydrogenosome; encystation; gene regulation; transfection; diplomonad; antigenic variation; annexin;

    Abstract : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic flagellates found in microaerophilic and anaerobic environments. The most studied diplomonad is the intestinal parasite Giardia intestinalis, which infects a variety of mammals and cause diarrheal disease. READ MORE
