  1. 1. Pathogenesis and Cell Biology of the Salmon Parasite Spironucleus salmonicida

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ásgeir Ástvaldsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Diplomonads; Spironucleus; Giardia; genome; annexin; oxygen stress; APEX; pathology;

    Abstract : Spironucleus species are classified as diplomonad organisms, diverse eukaryotic flagellates found in oxygen-deprived environments. Members of Spironucleus are parasitic and can infect a variety of hosts, such as mice and birds, while the majority are found to infect fish. READ MORE

    Abstract : The diplomonads are a diverse group of eukaryotic microbes found in oxygen limited environments such as the intestine of animals were they may cause severe disease. Among them, the prominent human parasite Giardia intestinalis non-invasively colonizes the small intestine of humans and animals where it induces the gastrointestinal disease giardiasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Comparative Cell Biology in Diplomonads

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elin Einarsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : 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

  4. 4. Comparative Genomics in Diplomonads Lifestyle Variations Revealed at Genetic Level

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Feifei Xu; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; comparative genomics; Giardia intestinalis; Spironucleus salmonicida; Trepomonas; diplomonad; intestinal parasite; free-living; sexual recombination; hydrogenosome; horizontal gene transfer; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution;

    Abstract : As sequencing technologies advance genome studies are becoming a basic tool for studying an organism, and with more genomes available comparative genomics is maturing into a powerful tool for biological research. This thesis demonstrates the strength of a comparative genomics approach on a group of understudied eukaryotes, the diplomonads. READ MORE
