  1. 1. Host-Pathogen Responses during Giardia infections

    Author : Emma Ringqvist; Staffan Svärd; Patricia Johnson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia; parasite infection; host-parasite releationship; immune activation; virulence factor; immune evasion; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Giardia lamblia is a eukaryotic parasite of the upper small intestine of humans and animals. The infecting trophozoite cells do not invade the epithelium lining of the intestine, but attach to the brush border surface in the intestinal lumen. The giardiasis disease in humans is highly variable. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of Giardia-host interactions: role of cysteine-rich surface proteins

    Author : Dimitra Peirasmaki; Staffan Svärd; Steven Singer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Giardia; intestinal parasite; parasite infection; host-parasite interaction; virulence factors; HCMPs; cysteine-rich proteins; secretome; proteome;

    Abstract : Giardia intestinalis is a eukaryotic parasite that colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals causing the diarrheal disease known as giardiasis. This parasite is not invasive and does not internalize into host cells but it rather attaches to the brush border surface of the small intestine disrupting the epithelial barrier. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Characterization of secreted Giardia intestinalis cysteine proteases

    Author : Jingyi Liu; Staffan G Svärd; Lars Hellman; Andre Buret; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Giardia intestinalis, the causative agent of the diarrheal disease giardiasis, is a protozoan parasite that colonizes the upper small intestine of mammals, including humans. It can be divided into eight genotypes or assemblages (A through H) and only assemblage A and B are infective to humans. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
