- Influence of host phylogeographic patterns and incomplete lineage sorting on within-species genetic variability in Wigglesworthia species, obligate symbionts of tsetse fliesRebecca E Symula
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale University, 21 Sachem St, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 77:8400-8. 2011..Thus, understanding the adaptive value of these host-symbiont combinations may afford opportunities to develop vector control methods...
- Trypanosoma brucei gambiense group 1 is distinguished by a unique amino acid substitution in the HpHb receptor implicated in human serum resistanceRebecca E Symula
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, United States of America
PLoS Negl Trop Dis 6:e1728. 2012..In contrast, similarity in HpHbR sequence among isolates of Tbg group 2 and Tbb/Tbr provides further evidence that human serum resistance in Tbg group 2 is likely independent of HpHbR function...
- Implications of microfauna-host interactions for trypanosome transmission dynamics in Glossina fuscipes fuscipes in UgandaUzma Alam
Yale University School of Public Health, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 78:4627-37. 2012..It is imperative to note that these novel findings would have been missed if we had employed the standard univariate analysis used in previous studies. Our results are discussed in the context of disease epidemiology and vector control...
