Necator americanus (human hookworm) aspartyl proteinases and digestion of skin macromolecules during skin penetration. (1/63)

The infective larvae of Necator americanus were shown to secrete all mechanistic classes of proteolytic enzymes with two overall pH optima of 6.5 and 8.5 using fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled casein as the substrate. Since infective larvae are obligate skin penetrators, the effect of each of these enzyme classes against macromolecules derived from human skin was examined. Larval secretions were shown to degrade collagen types I, III, IV, and V, fibronectin, laminin, and elastin. All the skin macromolecules tested were hydrolyzed by aspartyl proteinase activity, which was inhibitable by pepstatin A. Collagen and elastin was also hydrolyzed by metalloproteinase activity, while the serine proteinase activity hydrolyzed only elastin. As a consequence of these experiments, the effect of proteinase inhibitors on the penetration of live larvae through hamster skin was tested. Larval penetration was significantly inhibited only by pepstatin A, confirming the importance of the aspartyl proteinase activity during the skin penetration process.  (+info)

Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase in excretory-secretory products of the human hookworm Necator americanus. An electron paramagnetic spectrometry study. (2/63)

EPR spectrometry was used to investigate the effect of excretory/secretory product from Necator americanus on superoxide radical anions generated by xanthine/xanthine oxidase as a measure of excretory/secretory product superoxide dismutase activity. Using 1,1',5,5'-dimethylpyrollidine-N-oxide (DMPO) as a superoxide spin-trapping agent a 12-line EPR spectrum characteristic of the DMPO-OOH adduct was observed to decrease in the presence of excretory/secretory product. Superoxide dismutase activity was proportional to excretory/secretory protein concentration, was inhibited with cyanide treatment and was progressively destroyed with increasing time of heat denaturation of excretory/secretory product. Using a purpose-built chamber the superoxide dismutase activity of excretory/secretory product from live worms in culture was shown to accumulate with time to a maximum at 4 h. The electron paramagnetic resonance spectrum obtained for the frozen excretory/secretory product of N. americanus recorded at 77 K is typical of Cu(II) in a protein matrix. The results are consistent with the presence of an active Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase in excretory/secretory product from N. americanus and demonstrate a method for the unequivocal determination of the fate of superoxide anions in the presence of live worms.  (+info)

Geographic distribution and epidemiology of Oesophagostomum bifurcum and hookworm infections in humans in Togo. (3/63)

In contrast to the rest of the world, infections with Oesophagostomum bifurcum are commonly found in humans in northern Togo and Ghana. In addition, infections with hookworm are endemic in this region. In the present study, a detailed map of the geographic distribution of O. bifurcum and hookworm infections in northern Togo was made. There were a number of foci with high prevalence of infection with O. bifurcum. All the villages examined were infected with hookworm, and the distribution was quite patchy. Women were infected with O. bifurcum more often than men, while infections with hookworm were more prevalent in men than in women. The prevalence and intensity of infection with both parasites were clearly age-dependent. We estimate that more than a 100,000 people in Togo are infected with O. bifurcum and more than 230,000 are infected with hookworm.  (+info)

Eotaxin is specifically cleaved by hookworm metalloproteases preventing its action in vitro and in vivo. (4/63)

Eotaxin is a potent eosinophil chemoattractant that acts selectively through CCR3, which is expressed on eosinophils, basophils, mast cells, and Th2-type T cells. This arm of the immune system is believed to have evolved to control helminthic parasites. We hypothesized that helminths may employ mechanisms to inhibit eosinophil recruitment, to prolong worm survival in the host. We observed that the excretory/secretory products of the hookworm Necator americanus inhibited eosinophil recruitment in vivo in response to eotaxin, but not leukotriene B(4), a phenomenon that could be prevented by the addition of protease inhibitors. Using Western blotting, N. americanus supernatant was shown to cause rapid proteolysis of eotaxin, but not IL-8 or eotaxin-2. N. americanus homogenate was fractionated by gel filtration chromatography, and a FACS-based bioassay measured the ability of each fraction to inhibit the activity of a variety of chemokines. This resulted in two peaks of eotaxin-degrading activity, corresponding to approximately 15 and 50 kDa molecular mass. This activity was specific for eotaxin, as responses to other agonists tested were unaffected. Proteolysis of eotaxin was prevented by EDTA and phenanthroline, indicating that metalloprotease activity was involved. Production of enzymes inactivating eotaxin may be a strategy employed by helminths to prevent recruitment and activation of eosinophils at the site of infection. As such this represents a novel mechanism of regulation of chemokine function in vivo. The existence of CCR3 ligands other than eotaxin (e.g., eotaxin-2) may reflect the evolution of host counter measures to parasite defense systems.  (+info)

Determining the prevalence of Oesophagostomum bifurcum and Necator americanus infections using specific PCR amplification of DNA from faecal samples. (5/63)

Until recently infection of humans with Oesophagostomum bifurcum was regarded as a rare zoonosis. But in northern Togo and Ghana its prevalence is 50% or more in certain villages. Diagnosis is hampered by the fact that the eggs of O. bifurcum are morphologically identical to those of the hookworm Necator americanus. Stools have to be cultured for 7 days to allow eggs to hatch to the characteristic third-stage (L3) larvae. We evaluated the applicability of specific polymerase chain reactions (PCRs) to amplify DNA from faecal samples as an alternative method for the differential diagnosis of the two infections. Oesophagostomum bifurcum-PCR was positive in 57 of 61 faecal samples known to contain O. bifurcum L3 larvae in coproculture. Necator americanus PCR was positive in 137 of 146 faecal samples known to contain N. americanus L3 larvae in coproculture. PCR also detected 26 additional O. bifurcum cases in 72 samples from O. bifurcum endemic villages in which no O. bifurcum larvae were found and 45 N. americanus cases in 78 samples in which no N. americanus larvae were found in coproculture. No O. bifurcum DNA was detected in 91 stool samples from individuals from two non-endemic villages. These results prove the usefulness of specific PCR assays as epidemiological tools to estimate the prevalence of O. bifurcum and N. americanus infections in human populations.  (+info)

Emerging patterns of hookworm infection: influence of aging on the intensity of Necator infection in Hainan Province, People's Republic of China. (6/63)

We examined risk factors associated with Necator americanus infection among persons aged > or =50 years in Hainan Province, People's Republic of China. Age and sex made the most important contributions to the variation in infection intensity (28%-30%), with age alone responsible for 27% of this variation. When stratified by 20-year age intervals, the influence of shared residence was 23% for persons aged > or =50 years and 27% for those aged <20 years, who had the highest and lowest levels of infection intensity, respectively. This points to shared residence as a means of capturing the complex relationship between aging and shared socioeconomic, environmental, and behavioral factors that influence transmission of Necator infection. None of the other 26 personal or 32 household risk factors were found to be significant. The importance of aging in Necator infection reveals an emerging public health problem among the elderly population of developing countries.  (+info)

Basophils express a type 2 cytokine profile on exposure to proteases from helminths and house dust mites. (7/63)

The proteolytic activities frequently associated with sources of allergens and parasite secretions have been suggested as important immunomodulators. We have investigated whether the protease activity of the house dust mite allergen Der p1 and the secreted proteases of the hookworm Necator americanus are able to directly induce type 2 cytokine production by basophils. Der p1 and the secretions of N. americanus induced interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, and IL-13 but not interferon-gamma mRNA in KU812 basophils. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay confirmed that IL-4 and IL-13 were secreted. A nonproteolytic antigen failed to induce cytokine expression, and preincubation of Der p1 or N. americanus secretions with protease inhibitors inhibited cytokine expression. Data were confirmed using basophils purified from human peripheral blood. We speculate that this innate mechanism may contribute to the development of a cytokine milieu that could promote immunoglobulin E synthesis, eosinophil recruitment, and the development of type 2 T cells.  (+info)

Hookworm aspartic protease, Na-APR-2, cleaves human hemoglobin and serum proteins in a host-specific fashion. (8/63)

Hookworms are voracious blood-feeders. The cloning and functional expression of an aspartic protease, Na-APR-2, from the human hookworm Necator americanus are described here. Na-APR-2 is more similar to a family of nematode-specific, aspartic proteases than it is to cathepsin D or pepsin, and the term "nemepsins" for members of this family of nematode-specific hydrolases is proposed. Na-apr-2 mRNA was detected in blood-feeding, developmental stages only of N. americanus, and the protease was expressed in the intestinal lumen, amphids, and excretory glands. Recombinant Na-APR-2 cleaved human hemoglobin (Hb) and serum proteins almost twice as efficiently as the orthologous substrates from the nonpermissive dog host. Moreover, only 25% of the Na-APR-2 cleavage sites within human Hb were shared with those generated by the related N. americanus cathepsin D, Na-APR-1. Antiserum against Na-APR-2 inhibited migration of 50% of third-stage N. americanus larvae through skin, which suggests that aspartic proteases might be effective vaccines against human hookworm disease.  (+info)

Patent and pathologic infections of the human hookworm Necator americanus were established in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). In a pilot study, a laboratory strain of N. americanus was compared with a fresh field isolate. Pathology was more severe in animals infected with a fresh isolate. In all animals, infection was associated with increased total plasma IgE and production of IgG specific to adult worm excretory/secretory (ES) products. Histamine was released by basophils in response to IgE, ES products, and a recombinant hookworm allergen, calreticulin. The pilot study indicated the potential of this animal model of hookworm infection and led us to investigate the consequences of infecting a further cohort with the fresh field isolate. This second study confirmed our initial findings, that it is possible to investigate the human hookworm N. americanus in a model exhibiting many of the characteristics of the immunology of hookworm infection in its definitive host.

The relationship between iron status and the intensity of infection with hookworm was investigated in a rural population on Karkar Island, Mandang Province, Papua New Guinea. There was a significant negative correlation between plasma ferritin level and hookworm burden, which was strongest in males. In contrast, there was no correlation between plasma ferritin and hookworm egg count, and no consistent correlation between haemoglobin level or haematocrit and either measure of hookworm intensity. The results suggest that the role of hookworm in the aetiology of anaemia may be difficult to assess without the accurate measurement of hookworm burden.. ...
The development of endemic diseases such as worm infections that are transmitted through soil is strongly influenced by climatic conditions in tropical Indonesia. The worms included in the Soil Transmitted Helminth are Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and Hookworm (Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale). Ngagrong is a village in the highlands in Boyolali Regency. The majority of the population works as farmers, especially vegetable farmers. It is suspected that the habit of farmers while working who sometimes do not use personal protective equipment such as gloves and footwear in the form of sandals or shoes that directly contact with the soil and eat food without first washing their hands can give them a risk of worm infection.

I had heard about people using fecal transplants for certain disorders. In fact, I believe that theres a non-profit outside Boston that accepts stool donations which it passes on to those suffering from colitis. So I guess if someones willing to treat themselves with shit, its not a big leap to treatment with hookworms.. The need for all these new approaches to inflammatory diseases is because said diseases have proliferated. One hypothesis is that the proliferation has been brought out precisely because modernity - and folks like the Rockefeller Foundation who went through the South wiping out hookworm - has done too good a job. Weve sanitized ourselves to such an extent that we dont have enough of the microorganisms needed to keep us healthy. Anyway, it turns out that hookworms - necator americanus - are particularly ideal for helminth treatment. So, if youre suffering, you can order up some hookworms for Wormswell.

Suillus americanus is a species of fungus in the Suillaceae family of mushrooms. Commonly known as the chicken fat mushroom, the American slippery Jack (or slipperycap), or the American suillus, it grows in a mycorrhizal association with eastern white pine and can be found where this tree occurs in eastern North America and China. The mushroom can be recognized by the bright yellow cap with red to reddish-brown scales embedded in slime, the large yellow angular pores on the underside of the cap, and the narrow yellow stem marked with dark reddish dots. Molecular phylogenetics analysis suggests that S. americanus may be the same species as S. sibiricus, found in western North America and western and central Asia. Suillus americanus is edible, although opinions vary as to its palatability; some susceptible individuals may suffer a contact dermatitis after touching the fruit bodies. The fruit bodies contain a beta glucan carbohydrate shown in laboratory tests to have anti-inflammatory properties. ...
EDITORIAL. The multifactorial burden of anaemia in Africa Karen Sliwa*. Director: Soweto Cardiovascular Research Unit, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg The causation of anaemia is multifactorial in developing countries and includes micronutrient deficiencies (e.g. iron, folate, vitamin B12), chronic worm infections (e.g. hookworm, trichuris, schistosomiasis), haemoglobinopathies, cancer and chronic non-communicable disease such as chronic kidney disease and heart failure.. Anaemia is a major cause of morbidity in malaria, HIV and tuberculosis and is an independent prognostic marker in HIV. It also contributes to the progression of HIV and tuberculosis.1 In Africa, anaemia is particularly common in individuals infected with soil-transmitted helminths or schistosomes. Blood loss in hookworm infections such as Necator americanus and Ankylostoma duodenale is strongly and linearly correlated with worm load and faecal egg count.2 Polyparasitism (infection with several parasites) is common ...

Abstract Hookworms are enteric parasitic roundworms infecting an estimated 400 million persons worldwide. Herein, we provide the first molecular identifications of human hookworms from certain parts of rural Lower Myanmar. DNA was extracted from hookworm-positive stool samples, as determined by microscopy. DNA sequences of the partial internal transcribed spacer 1, full length 5.8S gene, and partial internal transcribed spacer 2 were determined and compared with available hookworm sequences from public databases. Of the 11 polymerase chain reaction-positive samples, eight (Bago Region, N = 4; Mon State, N = 4) yielded sequences with high similarity to those of Necator americanus. A further three sequences (Mon State, N = 2; Bago Region, N = 1) showed high similarity with those of Ancylostoma ceylanicum. The latter is primarily a parasite of dogs and represents a zoonosis. Given that different species of hookworms exhibit different epidemiological and biological characteristics, accurate identification
Soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH) is a type of helminth infection (helminthiasis) caused by different species of roundworms. It is caused specifically by those worms which are transmitted through soil contaminated with faecal matter and are therefore called soil-transmitted helminths. Three types of soil-transmitted helminthiasis can be distinguished: ascariasis, hookworm infection and whipworm infection. These three types of infection are therefore caused by the large roundworm A. lumbricoides, the hookworms Necator americanus or Ancylostoma duodenale and by the whipworm Trichuris trichiura. It has become the most common parasitic disease of humans worldwide. Approximately two billion people (about a third of global population) are infected as of the latest estimate, and four billion at risk, surpassing even the all-time most prevalent parasitic disease, malaria. The largest numbers of cases occur in impoverished rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and China. ...
Hookworm infection contributes around 700 million infections worldwide especially in developing nations due to poor sanitation. The effective recovery of hookworm ova from wastewater matrices is difficult due to their low concentrations and heterogeneous distribution. In this study, we compared the recovery rates of (i) four rapid hookworm ova concentration methods from municipal wastewater, and (ii) two concentration methods from sludge samples. Ancylostoma caninum ova were used as surrogate for human hookworm (Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus). Known concentration of A. caninum hookworm ova were seeded into wastewater (treated and raw) and sludge samples collected from two wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Brisbane and Perth, Australia. The A. caninum ova were concentrated from treated and raw wastewater samples using centrifugation (Method A), hollow fiber ultrafiltration (HFUF) (Method B), filtration (Method C) and flotation (Method D) methods. For sludge samples, flotation (Method

The paper outlines the following five lessons learned:. 1. Avoid the immunoglobulin E (IgE) trap. One of the first recombinant larval helminth vaccines tested in humans was the 21.3 kDa N. americanus Ancylostoma Secreted Protein-2 (Na-ASP-2). Allergic reactions in a small group of study participants led to the conclusion that Na-ASP-2 may interact with IgE antibodies induced by previous hookworm infection in individuals living in endemic areas, triggering this response. This halted development, leading to different vaccine targets and a revised critical path.. 2. Allow for ample time and resources during process development and manufacturing of helminth vaccines, with a focus on ability to scale-up to industrial-level manufacturing.. 3. Develop vaccine potency assays that do not rely on the traditional immunization-challenge potency model (as used for vaccines against pertussis, diphtheria, and rabies) as neither helminth pathogen induce reliable mortality in an animal model nor do these ...

Ascariasis: The infection is caused by Ascaris lumbricoides roundworms and is typically found in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Persons with light infections may not exhibit any symptoms. Those who develop symptoms start with a persistent cough, wheezing, shortness within 1 week of exposure as a result of larvae migrating to the lungs and throat. The second set of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody or worm in stools, fatigue, weight loss appear a few weeks (up to 2 or 3 months) later as the roundworms become adults and the females lay eggs which are shed through feces. The parasite can live in humans for up to 2 years. Children are particularly affected by this illness because they tend to play in and eat dirt. Treatment includes taking anthelmintic drugs. Hookworm , Ancyclostomiasis: This intestinal infection is primarily caused by Necator americanus, followed by Ancylostoma duodenale, and to a lesser extent by Ancylostoma ceylanicum nematodes typically ...

The three major Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH), Ascaris lumbricoides, Necator americanus/Ancylostoma duodenal and Trichuris trichiura are among the most prevalent parasites worldwide. The objective of this multicentre international study is to define the efficacy of a single 400 milligram dose of albendazole (ALB) against these three STHs using a standardised protocol. The trial will be undertaken among school age children in seven countries - Brazil, Cameroon, Cambodia, Ethiopia, India, Tanzania (Zanzibar) and Vietnam - each with a different epidemiologic pattern of infection. A trial of this nature is urgently required because in spite of the wide usage of albendazole over the last 3 decades, there is still no key publication reporting the efficacy of the anthelmintic accurately, and to modern conventional standards, that can act as a central reference for the baseline efficacy. The latter is critically important because albendazole is now being used even more widely, as large scale mass ...

Acetic acid, a potential growth inhibitor, commonly occurs in lignocellulosic hydrolysates. The growth of Cupriavidus necator DSM 545 and production of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) by this bacterium in a glucose-based medium supplemented with various initial concentrations of acetic acid are reported. The bacterium could use both glucose and acetic acid to grow and produce PHB, but acetic acid inhibited growth once its initial concentration exceeded 0.5 g/L. As acetic acid is an unavoidable contaminant in hydrolysates used as sugar sources in commercial fermentations, a mathematical model was developed to describe its impact on growth and the production of PHB ...
Sialic acid specific lectins have been discovered in several invertebrates as well as in some plants, however, in plants this is often a secondary specificity or the sialic acid must have a specific linkage. The hemolymph of the lobster contains multiple agglutinins, two of which have been purified 1 . The lectins, referred to as LAg-1 and LAg-2, have different binding specificities. LAg-1 is specific for sialic acid (N-acetylneuraminic acid; NANA), while LAg-2 is specific for N-acetyl-D-galactosamine 2 . HMA agglutinating activity is greatest at 4°C between pH 7.5-8.0. Lectin activity decreases as the temperature increases and activity is irreversibly lost below pH 5.0. LAg-1 has been used to isolate a subpopulation of low-sialic acid, immature mouse thymocytes. 3 The purified lectin and corresponding conjugates are not always readily available. Contact EY Laboratories for further information.. REFERENCES. ...
USFWS reclassify (downlist) the American burying beetle (Nicrophorus americanus) from endangered to threatened on the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. This determination is based on a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that the threats to this species have been reduced to the point that it is not currently in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, but that it is likely to become so within the foreseeable future. They also finalize a rule under the authority of section 4(d) of the Act that provides measures that are necessary and advisable to provide for the conservation of the American burying beetle. This rule is effective 16 November 2020.
