Metronidazole-resistant clinical isolates of Trichomonas vaginalis have lowered oxygen affinities

Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology
N YarlettD Lloyd


Oxygen affinities of metronidazole susceptible and resistant isolates of the parasitic flagellate protozoon Trichomonas vaginalis were determined by mass spectrometric methods. Apparent O2Km values for the respiration of non-proliferating cell suspensions were about 10-fold higher for metronidazole resistant strains than for the susceptible strains C1-NIH or NYH-286. Simultaneous monitoring of hydrogen evolution in the presence of increasing O2 tensions enabled apparent Ki values for H2 to be determined; and this function was independent of metronidazole susceptibility. Apparent O2 affinities of the hydrogenosomal and non-sedimentable fractions were determined for the strains CDC 85 (metronidazole resistant) and C1-NIH, which showed the deficiency in the O2 scavenging capacity by the resistant strain to be associated with the hydrogenosome-containing fraction.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.
