mansoni (BH strain Belo Horizonte, Brazil) worms were maintained in Biomphalaria
glabrata snails as intermediate hosts and Mesocricetus auratus hamsters as definitive host at the Adolfo Lutz Institute (Sao Paulo, Brazil), according to standard procedures previously described (de Moraes et al.
Bioactivity evaluation of plant extracts used in indigenous medicine against the snail, Biomphalaria
glabrata, and the larvae of Aedes aegypti.
This species is responsible for the displacement and evident eradication of several Biomphalaria
species and Pachychilus violaceus (Preston, 1911) in Cuba (Pointier & Jourdane 2000).
Effects of azinphos-methyl exposure on enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defenses in Biomphalaria
glabrata and Lumbriculus variegates.
The permanent streams and irrigation canals in Matangini also provide a habitat for Biomphalaria
species, the aquatic snail that is the intermediate host of S.
glabrata is the species of snails that acts as vectors for S.
glabrata embryonic cells express a protein with a domain homologous to the lectin domain of mammalian selectins.
When in 1985 the Diama dam started operating on the Senegal River to provide fresh water for irrigation, the decreased salinity and more alkaline pH allowed a freshwater snail, Biomphalaria
pfeifferi, to become abundant (Tchuem Tchuente et al.
Molluscicidal activities of six species of Bignoniaceae from north-eastern Brazil, as measured against Biomphalaria
glabrata under laboratory conditions.
Studies have demonstrated the occurrence of gastropod mollusks Biomphalaria
The nine studies cover catalytic activity in transcripts from Schistosoma non-autonomous retro-transposons, mobile genetic elements of malaria vectors and other mosquitoes, retro-transposons in the genomes of the digenean parasitic trematodes Clonochis sinensis and Paragonimus westermani, endogenous retro-transposon sequences of the Schistosoma mansoni intermediate snail host Biomphalaria
glabrata, the transposon-mediated transgenis of mosquitoes, Schistosome long terminal repeat retro-transposons colonizing Schistosome genomes, Schistosome DNA transposons, and mobile genetic elements resident in hookworm genomes.
mansoni are endemic are affected by the presence of snails of the genera Biomphalaria
and Bulinus, respectively, in infested bodies of water.
