How Intracellular Pathogens Manipulate Cellular Trafficking.
Petrů, Markéta ; Doležal, Pavel (advisor) ; Pyrih, Jan (referee)
Many intracellular single-celled organisms belong to medically important human pathogens. The selected parasites are subject of this thesis - Chlamydia spp., Legionella pneumophila, Trypanosoma cruzi and Toxoplasma gondii - as well as their interactions with the vesicular transport of the host cell. Basic pathways of vesicular transport are delineated and important participating molecules described. Furthermore, the effector proteins of pathogens that interact with these molecules are included. The special chapter is devoted to phenomenon of mimetics of SNARE proteins by bacteria. The manuscript concludes with a chapter on LpSNARE of Legionella pneumophila, which was found in our laboratory and which is a topic of my experimental work herein.
Cellular Protein Transport and Its Role in Patogenesis
Najdrová, Vladimíra ; Doležal, Pavel (advisor) ; Uzlíková, Magdalena (referee)
The main topic of this thesis are the protein secretion processes in several important human parasites - Toxoplasma gondii, Plasmodium falciparum, Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania spp. and Giardia intestinalis. Described here are the parasite's and the host proteins which participate in the pathogenic processes involving the protein secretion. As shown here, the protein secretion into the host environment is one of key tools serving the parasite to survive within and manipulate the host organism. Interestingly, different parasitic organisms use functionally and evolutionary distinct strategies to fulfill this aim. Key words secretory pathway, translocon, signal sequence, Toxoplasma gongii, Plasmodium falciparum, Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania spp., Giardia intestinalis
