    • Characterization of GASA-1, a new vaccine candidate antigen of Babesia bovis 

      Flores, Daniela; Rodriguez, Anabel Elisa; Tomazic, Mariela Luján; Torioni, Susana Marta; Echaide, Ignacio Eduardo; Zamorano, Patricia Ines; Langellotti, Cecilia Ana; Araujo, Flabio Ribeiro de; Rolls, Peter; Schnittger, Leonhard; Florin-Christensen, Mónica (Elsevier, 2020-11)
      Surface proteins bound to the cell membrane by glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchors are considered essential for the survival of pathogenic protozoans. In the case of the tick-transmitted hemoparasite Babesia bovis, ...
    • Evidence for extensive genetic diversity and substructuring of the Babesia bovis metapopulation 

      Flores, Daniela; Minichiello, Y.; Araujo, Flabio Ribeiro de; Shkap, V.; Benitez, Daniel Francisco; Echaide, Ignacio Eduardo; Rolls, P.; Mosqueda, J.; Pacheco, Maria Gabriela; Petterson, Maria Elizabeth; Florin-Christensen, Mónica; Schnittger, Leonhard (2013-11)
      Babesia bovis is a tick-transmitted haemoprotozoan and a causative agent of bovine babesiosis, a cattle disease that causes significant economic loss in tropical and subtropical regions. A panel of nineteen micro- and ...
    • Expresión heteróloga y localización subcelular del candidato vacunal GPI4 de babesia bovis en el ciliado tetrahymena thermophila 

      Montes, M. G.; Flores, Daniela; Rodriguez, Anabel Elisa; González Maglio, D. H.; Florin-Christensen, Mónica; Nusblat, Alejandro David; Schnittger, Leonhard (FundaVet, 2019-06)
      Los glicosilfosfatidilinositoles (GPIs) se encuentran en abundancia en la superficie de protozoos parásitos como glicolípidos libres y como anclas de proteínas de superficie a la membrana plasmática. Se ha demostrado que ...
    • The glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored protein repertoire of Babesia bovis and its significance for erythrocyte invasion 

      Rodriguez, Anabel Elisa; Florin-Christensen, Mónica; Flores, Daniela; Echaide, Ignacio Eduardo; Suarez, Carlos Esteban; Schnittger, Leonhard (2014-04)
      Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored proteins are abundant on the surface of pathogenic protozoans and might play an important role for parasite survival. In the present work, the relevance of GPI-anchored proteins for ...
    • Vaccines against bovine babesiosis: where we are now and possible roads ahead 

      Florin-Christensen, Mónica; Suarez, Carlos Esteban; Rodriguez, Anabel Elisa; Flores, Daniela; Schnittger, Leonhard (Cambridge University Press, 2014-10)
      Bovine babesiosis caused by the tick-transmitted haemoprotozoans Babesia bovis, Babesia bigemina and Babesia divergens commonly results in substantial cattle morbidity and mortality in vast world areas. Although existing ...
