Biochemical and molecular studies of copper metabolism during the infection process of the human pathogenic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis

R.S. Santos The fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is a human pathogen with a wide distribution in Latin America. The fungus causes paracoccidioidomycosis when mycelia reach the lungs. The success of the infection depends on the acquisition of essential micronutrients such as copper, which is required as a cofactor for a variety of enzymes important in several […]

Comparative study of the cytogeneticand molecular characteristics ofTriatoma maculata and T. pseudomaculata (Heteroptera, Triatominae)

P.P. Mendonca Triatomines are hematophagous insects of great concern in public health because they are vectors of Trypanosoma cruzi, a protozoan that causes Chagas disease. Triatomines are also of great genetic interest, because they possess holocentric chromosomes and undergo an unusual form of meiosis with post-reductional segregation of sex chromosomes. Recent studies based on molecular […]
