Mugnier, Monica.

2009

Description
  • Trypanosoma cruzi, the infectious agent of Chagas' Disease, has a mimic of nerve growth factor (NGF), known as parasite-derived neurotrophic factor (PDNF). PDNF binds to the NGF receptor TrkA and promotes the survival and differentiation of neuronal cells, as well as entry into the cell by T. cruzi. A screen for T. cruzi proteins that mimic other neurotrophic factors was performed, and a T. cruzi ... read more
