Scientists sequence genome of parasite responsible for common sexually transmitted infection

...asite evolved over time, previously inhabiting the intestine and later moving to the urogenital tract, which resulted in increased cell size and, subsequently, a considerably expanded genome. The researchers also discovered more than 150 instances where bacterial genes may have transferred into the parasit...

Bacterial protein shows promise in treating intestinal parasites

...rms. Hookworms cause anemia by attaching to the intestine and feeding on their host's blood and nutrients, causing anemia and weight loss. The researchers said in their paper that because this naturally-produced protein is safe to humans and other vertebrates and can be produced inexpensively in large quant...

Parallel evolution: Proteins do it, too

U of M researchers find immune-activating cells in intestines

...esearchers found a tiny population of cells in the intestine that signal the T- cells to fight infections. "Without these cells, the T-cells are blind, and the body's immune response in the intestinal system would not engage to fight the infection," McSorley said. While the researchers used a mouse model to ...

UCLA paper examines how one disease may prevent another
