Abstract

BAHIA, Diana et al. Protein tyrosine kinases in Schistosoma mansoni. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2006, vol.101, suppl.1, pp. 137-143. ISSN 0074-0276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762006000900022.

The identification and description of signal transduction molecules and mechanisms are essential to elucidate Schistosoma mansoni host-parasite interactions and parasite biology. This mini review focuses on recent advancements in the study of signalling molecules and transduction mechanisms in S. mansoni, drawing special attention to the recently identified and characterised protein tyrosine kinases of S. mansoni.

Keywords : signal transduction; protein kinase; schistosoma; tyrosine kinase.
