  • A new family of giardial cysteine-rich non-VSP protein genes and a novel cyst protein 

    Davids, Barbara J.; Reiner, David S.; Birkeland, Shanda R.; Preheim, Sarah P.; Cipriano, Michael J.; McArthur, Andrew G.; Gillin, Frances D. (Public Library of Science, 2006-12)
    Since the Giardia lamblia cyst wall is necessary for survival in the environment and host infection, we tested the hypothesis that it contains proteins other than the three known cyst wall proteins. Serial analysis of gene ...
  • Protein phosphatase 2A plays a crucial role in Giardia lamblia differentiation 

    Lauwaet, Tineke; Davids, Barbara J.; Torres-Escobar, Ascencion; Birkeland, Shanda R.; Cipriano, Michael J.; Preheim, Sarah P.; Palm, Daniel; Svard, Staffan G.; McArthur, Andrew G.; Gillin, Frances D. (2006-12-06)
    The ability of Giardia lamblia to undergo two distinct differentiations in response to physiologic stimuli is central to its pathogenesis. The giardial cytoskeleton changes drastically during encystation and excystation. ...
  • Transcriptome analyses of the Giardia lamblia life cycle 

    Birkeland, Shanda R.; Preheim, Sarah P.; Davids, Barbara J.; Cipriano, Michael J.; Palm, Daniel; Reiner, David S.; Svard, Staffan G.; Gillin, Frances D.; McArthur, Andrew G. (2010-06-04)
    We quantified mRNA abundance from 10 stages in the Giardia lamblia life cycle in vitro using Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE). 163 abundant transcripts were expressed constitutively. 71 transcripts were upregulated ...
