  • Our analysis corroborates the idea that the diversification of the Cdc48 family is closely intertwined with the development of the compartments of the eukaryotic cell. (beds.ac.uk)
  • T. vaginalis AP65 is a secreted, surface-associated protein and a model is proposed to explain how this secreted protein functions as an adhesin. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Many of these protein families can be divided into subfamilies in which each paralogue performs a function similar to that of the other members but at a specific organellar location or in a distinct transport pathway ( Bonifacino and Glick, 2004 ). (biologists.org)
  • One exception is the Cdc48 protein family, which consists of several distinct classical ATPases associated with various cellular activities (AAA+) proteins with two consecutive AAA domains. (beds.ac.uk)
  • In addition, T. vaginalis can frequently cause punctate mucosal hemorrhages (8) . (cdc.gov)
  • Our findings not only set the stage for future functional studies on the novel M60-like/PF13402 family of proteins and their functional partners, but also further our understanding of host-microbial interactions at mucosal surfaces. (bl.uk)
  • A proto-eukaryote possessing a very simple trafficking system could thus have evolved to near modern complexity in the last common eukaryotic ancestor (LCEA) via paralogous gene family expansion of the proteins encoding organelle identity. (biologists.org)
  • Subjects will undergo an audio computer assisted self- interview (ACASI), and will self-collect vaginal swabs for Trichomonas testing by InPouch and NAAT, Gram stain testing, and a future microbiome specimen. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Although Pap-stained cytological smears gave the highest number of positives, in 30% of these cases the presence of T.vaginalis could not be confirmed by examination of vaginal swabs. (mysciencework.com)
  • Although the actual target of the M60-like domain of TVAG339720 and its relatives in T. vaginalis are not currently known, the interaction of the TVAG339720 PA14 domain with heparin suggests that these may be proteases targeting proteoglycans and play a role in adhesion of the pathogen to the epithelial layer, a key initial step in pathogenesis.
