TY - JOUR. T1 - Molecular cloning of a myoD-like gene from the parasitic nematode, Trichinella spiralis. AU - Connolly, Bernadette. AU - Trenholme, K. AU - Smith, D F. PY - 1996/10/30. Y1 - 1996/10/30. N2 - The infective larval stage of the nematode Trichinella spiralis is an intracellular parasite of skeletal muscle cells. Infection with T. spiralis results in dedifferentiation of the host cell and the formation of a host/parasite complex. A gene encoding a T. spiralis Helix-Loop-helix (HLH) protein with homology to the myogenic transcription factor, MyoD, and to the Caenorhabditis elegans protein, CeMyoD, has been identified and partially characterized. The tsmyd-1 gene is expressed constitutively during the muscle-larval and adult stages. A purified recombinant Tsmyd-1 protein, expressed in Escherichia coli, binds to a high affinity mouse MyoD DNA binding site in vitro. The present study describes the first HLH gene to be identified in Trichinella.. AB - The infective larval stage of the ...
Molting is a key step for body-size expansion and environmental adaptation of parasitic nematodes, and it is extremely important for Trichinella spiralis growth and development, but the molting mechanism is not fully understood. In this work, label-free LC-MS/MS was used to determine the proteome differences between T. spiralis muscle larvae (ML) at the encapsulated stage and intestinal infective larvae (IIL) at the molting stage. The results showed that a total of 2885 T. spiralis proteins were identified, 323 of which were differentially expressed. These proteins were involved in cuticle structural elements, regulation of cuticle synthesis, remodeling and degradation, and hormonal regulation of molting. These differential proteins were also involved in diverse intracellular pathways, such as fatty acid biosynthesis, arachidonic acid metabolism, and mucin type O-glycan biosynthesis. qPCR results showed that five T. spiralis genes (cuticle collagen 14, putative DOMON domain-containing protein, glutamine
Trichinella spiralis. Light micrograph of a section through cysts caused by Trichinella spiralis roundworms in pork muscle tissue. The pork muscle is stained blue. Several circular cysts are visible (dark blue, top right, lower right and lower left). Larvae are visible inside the cysts (purple). The cysts are being attacked by white blood cells (red). T. spiralis is a parasitic nematode worm. Human infection, usually caused by eating contaminated pork, causes Trichinosis. The larvae mature in the intestines and reproduce, spreading around the body causing fevers and pain, and forming muscular cysts. Magnification x35 at 6x7cm size. - Stock Image Z180/0207
Trichinella spiralis, sometimes known as the pork worm, is a parasite within the Nematoda class. It can be found in pigs, rats, humans, and bears. This worm causes trichinosis in humans, most often from consuming undercooked pork. This species is the smallest within its class, reaching an average body length of .16 centimeters. Females are twice as large as males, displaying a sexual dimorphism. The reproductive organs of females are unique to the species in that the front end holds developed juveniles, while the back end, where the uterus is found, holds undeveloped eggs. The genome of this species was completed in 2011.. Trichinella spiralis requires one host to mature and survive, because it spends its entire life within the one host. When a human ingests the larvae, which are protected by a cyst like formation, the PH of the stomach allows them to hatch and travel into the intestines. After reaching this area, the larvae dig into the mucosa to grow and breed. Females can live for up to six ...
A method is described for the production of T-cell lines and clones specific for solubilized Trichinella spiralis antigens. hese T cells are antigen-specific and do not respond to challenge with a third party antigen (lysozyme). The proliferation responses of the cloned T cells are specifically inhibited by anti-I-E but not by anti I-A subregion monoclonal reagents. The inhibition patterns obtained are consistent with cis-gene complementation in B10.K cells involving the Ek β-chain and the Ek α-chain of the I-E molecule. Inhibition is obtained with an Ek β -specific monoclonal antibody (H9-14.8) but not with an Ak β -specific monoclonal antibody (10-2.16). Inhibition was also observed with Ia.7-specific (H40-242) or Ia.22-specific (17-3-3) monoclonal antibodies. The inhibition patterns were confirmed by antigen presentation experiments using recombinant inbred mice. Only B 10.K (Ek β Ek α spleen cells and not B 10.A(5R) (Eb β Ek α) or B10.S(9R) (Es β Ek α) spleen cells could effectively
Melanoma is a very aggressive form of skin cancer. It is in most cases resistant to conventional chemotherapy. Because of that it represents a great challenge for investigation of new therapeutic approaches. It is well known that co infection with different pathogens, including helminths and in particular Trichinella spiralis (T. spiralis), can ameliorate (alter) the progression of different diseases (autoimmune, allergic) including malignant one. Drugs approved for indications other than cancer that possess previously unrecognized cytotoxicity toward malignant cells could be rapidly used for this new indication. Data suggest that one of drugs with such indication could be mebendazole. Benzimidazole anthelmintics including mebendazole are widely used in human and veterinary medicine. We studied the in vivo and in vitro effect of: a) T. spiralis excretory-secretory muscle larvae (ES L1) antigen and b) mebendazole on the melanoma cells. I) In vitro studies: a) We investigated the effect of ES L1 ...
A clone, designated L20h-Ts3, was selected by immunoscreening of cDNA libraries of Trichinella spiralis worms collected 14h, 20h and 48h post-infection (p.i.) from mice intestines. L20h-Ts3 encodes the full-length of a conserved hypothetical protein of 13.1kDa involving putative interaction with the immune system. PCR analysis showed that L20h-Ts3 mRNA is constitutively expressed throughout T. spiralis life cycle and not restricted to intestinal stages. The L20h-Ts3 fusion protein was obtained in an Escherichia coli expression system and purified by Ni-affinity chromatography before inoculation into mice in order to produce polyclonal antibodies. Then, immunohistochemical study and Western blot analysis revealed its presence within the stichosome of T. spiralis and in excretory/secretory products strengthening a putative fundamental role for the parasites survival such as host tissue invasion or modification of the host muscular cell phenotype. L20h-Ts3 fusion protein was recognized in Western blot as
Thus, in nude mice the severe cell dependent resistance mice may be more resistant to deficiency in T- may result in a more dramatic change in the ultimate control of infection with Listeria monocytogenes than in nude rats. As in true for resistance to the bacterial infection with Listeria monocytogenes, also the resistance to the infection with the parasite Trichinella spiralis is littermates different in nude rats compares to +/rnu (40). Nude rats are unable to mount IgM, IgG and IgE-class antibodies against T. Fortunately, they did not join the Animal Rightists, but sought co-operation with the scientists. Now the Association has members in various parts of Finland, professors as well as laboratory animal technicians, students and laymen. The Association has organized seminars and symposia on refined techniques and handling of laboratory animals. The good relations between animal welfarists and laboratory animal technicians is expressed by the fact that the Association has financially ...

There are several experimental evidences that nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the microbicidal activity of macrophages against a number of intracellular pathogens including Leishmania major, Trypanozoma cruzi, Toxoplasma gondii. It is also well known that eosinophils (EO) have microbicidal activity against many parasites such as Schistosoma mansoni, Trichinella spiralis, T. cruzi and L. amazonensis. The purpose of this study was to investigate if NO is involved in the microbicidal activity of EO against L. major. Eosinophils harvested from peritoneal cavity of rats released spontaneously after 24 and 48 hr a small amount of nitrite. This release was enhanced by the treatment of cells with IFN-gamma (200 IU/ml). This release was blocked by addition of the NO synthase inhibitor, L-NIO (100 mM) into the culture. To determinate the leishmanicidal activity of eosinophils the parasites were incubated with activated eosinophils with IFN-gamma and the ability of surviving parasites to incorporate ...

The Helicobacter pylori neutrophil-activating protein (HP-NAP) is able to induce IL-12 expression by cells of innate immunity and to shift to T(H)1 human allergen-specific T(H)2 cells in vitro. We performed an in vivo investigation of the ability of HP-NAP to downmodulate the T(H)2 response induced in mice by Trichinella spiralis infection. Groups of T spiralis-infected BALB/c mice received intraperitoneal PBS/rat IgG2b (control animals) or 10 microg of HP-NAP with or without anti-Toll-like receptor 2 antibody on days 10 and 28 after infection. Blood eosinophils, total and T spiralis-specific IgE levels, and cytokine levels were measured in the plasma up to day 42, when splenocytes were cultured for cytokine production. RESULTS: Although control animals showed significant eosinophilia and increase of total and T spiralis-specific IgE, IL-4, and IL-5 levels from days 10 to 14, HP-NAP-treated animals showed less eosinophilia and total and excretory/secretory antigens of T spiralis-specific IgE in ...
Serine proteases are found in the excretory-secretory (ES) products from Trichinella spiralis muscle larvae, have collagenolytic and elastolytic activities, and may be related to the larval invasion of intestinal epithelial cells. In this study, the serine protease gene (TspSP-1.2, GenBank accession No. EU302800) encoding a 35.5kDa protein from T. spiralis was cloned, and recombinant TspSP-1.2 protein was produced in an Escherichia coli expression system. An anti-TspSP-1.2 serum recognized the native protein migrating at 35.5kDa by the Western blotting of the crude or ES antigens from muscle larvae at 42days post infection. An immunolocalization analysis identified TspSP-1.2 in the cuticle and internal organs of the parasite. Transcription and expression of the TspSP-1.2 gene was observed at all developmental stages of T. spiralis (adult worms, newborn larvae, pre-encapsulated larvae and muscle larvae). An in vitro invasion assay showed that, when anti-TspSP-1.2 serum, serum of infected mice and ...
Vitamin A-deficient (A-) mice make strikingly poor IgG responses when they are immunized with purified protein antigens. Previously, we showed that A- T cells overproduce interferon gamma (IFN-gamma), which then could inhibit interleukin 4 (IL-4)-stimulated B cell IgG responses. To determine if the altered IFN-gamma regulation pattern and its immunological consequences would extend to a natural infection, we studied mice infected with the parasitic helminth Trichinella spiralis. The course of the infection was similar in A- and A-sufficient (A+) mice. These mice did not differ with respect to newborn larvae/female/hour produced in the intestine, or muscle larvae burden 5 wk postinfection. They also did not differ in the intestinal worm expulsion rate until day 15, when A- mice still harbored parasites, whereas A+ mice had cleared intestinal worms. Vitamin A deficiency reduced both the frequency of B lymphocytes secreting IgG1 antibodies to parasite antigens, and the bone marrow eosinophilia ...
Results of this study show that cells isolated from the longitudinal muscle layer of T. spiralis-infected mice exhibit a substantially greater degree of shortening on exposure to Carbachol than cells isolated from control mice. This finding indicates that the inflammation-induced hypercontractility is a property of the muscle cells, rather than the syncytium. Thus muscle cells isolated from this model may be used to examine changes in excitation-contraction coupling that underlie this hyperresponsiveness to Carbachol. The presence of CD3+ cells in the muscularis externa, taken together with the observation that the increased shortening of isolated cells is attenuated in STAT6-deficient infected mice, is consistent with the hypothesis that Th2 cytokines mediate these effects at the level of the muscle cell.. We also show that intestinal muscle cells from control or infected mice express the IL-4Rα and are therefore, able to respond to IL-4 and IL-13. Indeed, we show that when these cells are ...
Fucus spiralis is a relatively short lived perennial algae. Maximum lifespans of up to five years (S. H. Brawley, personal observation) have been recorded, but with an average lifespan of two years (Niemeck & Mathieson, 1976). Niemeck & Mathieson (1976) found that Fucus spiralis growth rates peaked in the summer, with fronds increasing in length between 1.9 - 2.8cm / month; and that the average increase in length for a year was 1.2cm / month. Variations in growth rate are found between the north east and north west Atlantic (Niemeck & Mathieson, 1976, Subrahmanyan, 1961, Hariot, 1909).. A ten month reproductive cycle has been recorded for Fucus spiralis populations in both New Hampshire and the Isle of Man (Niemeck & Mathieson, 1976, Subrahmanyan, 1961). The cycle starts in late January, when the receptacles appear, and concludes in the late summer, July or August, when the gametes are released (Niemeck & Mathieson, 1976). Both Niemeck & Mathieson (1976) and Subrahmanyan (1961) recorded that ...

Most people with the disease are unaware that they have even been infected. It is estimated that between 150,000 and 300,000 people in the United States become infected yearly, so that at any given time, 1.5 million people have T. spiralis infections. Most of these people have such light cases that trichinosis is never identified. Worm burden is measured in larvae per gram of muscle tissue; people with 10 or fewer larvae per gram of muscle tissue usually have no significant symptoms. When the number climbs to 100 larvae per gram of muscle tissue, the symptoms become noticeable. People with over 1000 larvae per gram of muscle tissue are usually extremely ill, and often die" (Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine ...
Type 2, or allergic, inflammation in the lung requires the cytokines IL-5, IL-13, and IL-9, which collectively elicit eosinophilia, alternative activation of macrophages, goblet cell hyperplasia, smooth muscle hypercontractility, and tissue remodeling, and may contribute to wound healing (Licona-Limón et al., 2013; Gour and Wills-Karp, 2015). As long-lived tissue-resident cells, group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) are a critical early source of these type 2 cytokines before type 2 helper T cell (Th2 cell) recruitment. The role of ILC2s in promoting type 2 lung inflammation has been established in mice using models such as parasitic worm infection, chitin, papain, fungal, or house dust mite challenge, and allergic asthma (Neill et al., 2010; Price et al., 2010; Barlow et al., 2012; Bartemes et al., 2012; Halim et al., 2012; Klein Wolterink et al., 2012; Van Dyken et al., 2014).

Summary Two hundred and sixty-six rats divided into 11 groups were used to determine whether the immune response of rats infected with a single dose of 500 irradiated (roentgen ray) Trichinella spiralis larvae varied with the amount of radiation received by the immunising larvae. The data procured indicated that the immunity produced by the irradiated larvae decreased as the radiation was increased from 8,000 to 20,000 roentgens. It was also noted that larvae exposed to either 8,000 or 12,000 r were more potent immunologic agents than were non-irradiated larvae.

In this review, the analogy between the processes of nurse cell formation and muscle cell repair has been emphasized. At least the earliest events mobilizing satellite cells seem to be common, but the fate of the proliferated myoblast cell is different. In the former case, the satellite cell differentiates to the muscle cell, but it mis-differentiates to the nurse cell in the latter case. The idea that comes to mind is that Trichinella, in order to make its own home, basically utilizes the cell-biological-system of the host which is equipped for the purpose of muscle cell repairing. Since the satellite cell is a progenitor cell located within the capsule wall, a new cell can be continuously supplied from the myoblast, even if the present nurse cell dies. This explains why the nurse cell looks intact and active for years in spite of intracellular parasitism. Thus Trichinella can take advantage of the host for its own survival.. How the parasite takes advantage of the host cell biological system ...
The index patient harvested a wild boar from an Iowa game farm; he processed the meat after returning home and developed gastrointestinal symptoms 2 days later. Four days after his illness onset, all 5 family members consumed a roast from the boar. The index patient sought healthcare 4 times after illness onset before being definitively diagnosed with trichinellosis. Following initiation of albendazole therapy, the index patient developed atrial fibrillation. One additional family member who processed the raw meat was diagnosed with trichinellosis. Trichinella spiralis larvae were identified in wild boar meat samples ...
The parasitic nematode Trichinella has a special relation with muscle, because of its unique intracellular localization in the skeletal muscle cell, completely devoted in morphology and biochemistry to become the parasite protective niche, otherwise called the nurse cell. The long-lasting muscle infection of Trichinella exhibits a strong interplay with the host immune response, mainly characterized by a Th2 phenotype. The aim of this review is to illustrate the role of the Th2 host immune response at the muscle level during trichinellosis in different experimental models, such as knock-out or immuno-modulated mice. In particular, in knock-out mice a crucial role of IL-10 is evident for the regulation of inflammation intensity. The muscular host immune response to Trichinella is partially regulated by the intestinal phase of the parasite which emphasizes the intensity of the following muscle inflammation compared with animals infected by synchronized injections of newborn larvae.

Gastric contractions induced by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) contribute to mucosal ulceration. The goal of the present study was to investigate whether maintaining normal gastric motility provides protection against NSAIDs. A rat model of indomethacin-induced gastric mucosal injury and muscle hypercontratility was used to evaluate the protective effect of pretreatment with the 5-HT4 receptor agonist tegaserod (1 mg/kg b.i.d.) in comparison to the effect of the proton pump inhibitor omeprazole (20 mg/kg b.i.d). Indomethacin induced mucosal ulceration associated with hypercontractility of isolated antral muscle strips in response to KCl, carbachol, 5-HT or electrical field stimulation. Pretreatment with tegaserod alone or in combination with omeprazole prevented both mucosal ulceration and muscle hypercontractility. In contrast, omeprazole protected the mucosa without preventing the development of muscle hypercontractility. The results show that activation of peripheral 5-HT4 ...
Trichinosis is an acute disease usually occurring in man following the ingestion of pork products infested with the encysted larvae of the Nematode, Trichinella spiralis. The illness is characterized by fever, muscular pains, swollen eyelids, and a variable course, depending on the degree of infestation. The adult forms of the parasite (male and female) develop in the intestinal tract where the female deposits her eggs after penetrating the mucosa. In a few days the young trichina enter the intestinal lymphatics and are then transported by the circulatory system to all parts of the body. Usually, the initial symptoms of the ...
A young woman contracts a parasite, Trichinella spiralis, after eating infected meat. The condition, called trichinosis, can cause paralysis as the worms burrow through her muscles.
Trichinella spiralis relates to so-called helminths or nematodes. Trichinella there are several species, some of which are pathogenic for humans. Hosts are as humans and many domestic and wild animals. Usually a person is faced with infestations by eating poorly heat-treated pork but not least and registered cases of infection from wild game. Animals in turn are infected by eating infected rodents most often, but not only. In the meat contained encapsulated cysts of the parasite. When falling into the intestinal tract under the action of proteolytic enzymes released from the cysts are parasites, and for a short period of time they become sexually mature forms.

Summary Immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA, and IgM) were separated from the serum of a person infected with Trichinella spiralis (Serum T) and another infected with Echinococcus granulosus (Serum E) by Sephadex G-200 and DEAE cellulose column chromatography and sucrose-density gradient ultracentrifugation. The composition of fractions was assayed by the Ouchterlony technique and by immunoelectrophoresis. Whole serum and serum fractions were tested by serodiagnostic methods and by passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in the guinea pig and monkey. The IgG fractions of Serum E were reactive in serologic tests and in the skin of guinea pigs. Reactivity in the skin of monkeys appeared to be associated with the IgA fraction from a Sephadex G-200 column and the IgG fraction from a DEAE cellulose column. The IgM fraction from serum T showed the greatest reactivity in serologic tests. The IgG fraction was reactive in serologic tests and in the skin of guinea pigs. Neither serum T nor fractions derived from it reacted in

Trichinella spiralis and Toxoplasma gondii are well known zoonoses which can pass from pigs to humans by consumption of raw or undercooked infected pork. In humans, most cases of T. gondii and T. spiralis infections go undetected; however, some cases can lead to mild disease. Other cases of trichinellosis can be very severe and may lead to myocarditis, encephalitis or pneumonia. Post natal acquired toxoplasmosis can incidentally lead to encephalitis and necrotizing retinochoroiditis, while congenital transmitted toxoplasmosis can lead to mental retardation, convulsions, spasticity, cerebral palsy, deafness and severely impaired vision in the offspring. In rare occasions, both these infections can lead to death.. These days, in Europe, trichinellosis is rarely reported in association with the consumption of pork from conventionally raised pigs [1]. An EU regulation [2] directs inspection of T. spiralis in each pig carcass at slaughter by direct parasitological methods. This regulation also states ...
This is the first report of an epidemic of human infection with Trichinella pseudospiralis. An outbreak of trichinellosis affecting 59 individuals, of whom one died, occurred in southern Thailand during 1994-1995. The source of this epidemic was raw pork from a wild pig that was distributed to villagers by a local hunter. The most striking clinical features among 50 individuals who could be followed were muscular swelling, myalgia, and asthenia persisting for ,4 months. These were associated with significant elevations of creatine phosphokinase and lactate dehydrogenase levels. All patients had Trichinella-specific IgG antibodies in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Muscle biopsies, performed in six cases, showed nonencapsulated, actively migrating Trichinella larvae. Experimental infection of mice with larvae from human biopsies revealed nonencapsulated muscle larvae consistent with T. pseudospiralis.

Trichinellosis, a parasitic zoonosis with world-wide distribution, causes serious health problems in humans and is also of economic importance. In Slovakia the most frequent species is T. britovi, causing disease mainly in wild life species. T. spiralis occurs less frequently and T. pseudospiralis only sporadically. The paper describes the epidemiology of six human Trichinella infection outbreaks recorded in Slovakia between 1980 and 2008. Before 1990 wild boar meat was the main source of infection. Later, risk farm practices, especially feeding of pigs with the wild animal´s offal contributed to the formation of synanthropic cycle and pig meat caused the epidemics in 1990, 2001 and 2008. Sausages prepared from pork and T. britovi infected dog meat and offered as a local food specialty on traditional folk festival in 1998 (Brezno district, Central Slovakia) were the source of the largest human outbreak recorded in Slovakia. The anti-Trichinella antibodies were detected in 336 event visitors. ...
Trichinella spiralis is a common worm to affect humans who consume pork meat. In a country like India, where quality pork is rarely available even in urban areas trichinosis is a common infection. Trichinosis is a parasitic infection caused by the larvae of the worm. The adults then produce larvae that migrate through various tissues, including muscle. Trichinosis is listed as a " rare disease " by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). If the infection is heavy, patients may experience difficulty coordinating movements, and have heart and breathing problems. In severe cases, death can occur.. After consuming poor quality pork containing the cysts of the worm, larvae are liberated in the digestive system by the digestive juices. The larvae invade the small intestine mucous membrane and mature rapidly into adult worms. After seven days, female worms release new born larvae that migrate via the blood stream to the skeletal muscles. In the muscles the larva ...
Unlike previous researchers, they took seriously Germanys claim that its ban on American pork was not a tariff but a step in disease control. That put an entirely new face on the old saga of the battle of economic giants. As they tracked their way through medical and diplomatic literature, they began to see instead a picture of a modern health-related bureaucracy slowly and clumsily emerging in the two nations.. What the German government feared in 1881 was trichinosis, a disease caused by a tiny parasitic roundworm, trichina (or Trichinella spiralis ), which lives in the muscle tissue of some swine. The symptoms run from simple abdominal distress to infections that kill. As late as 1942 there was a fatal outbreak in the New York area. Even now 15 percent of Americas people and 20 percent of its pigs may harbor the worm. Trichinosis in humans had been painstakingly studied in the 1850s and 1860s by the German pathologist Rudolf Virchow, a trailblazer in the identification of disease-carrying ...
