comparative proteomic analysis of the saliva of the rhodnius prolixus, triatoma lecticularia and panstrongylus herreri triatomines reveals a high interespecific functional biodiversity.triatomines are hematophagous arthropods that transmit trypanosoma cruzi and trypanosoma rangeli. feeding behavior and pathogen transmission is known to vary between the different species, and this characteristic is directly or indirectly dependent on the bioactive molecules of the saliva that facilitate the vector-host-parasite interaction. here, we identify, characterize and compare the sialoproteomic (from the greek sialo: saliva) repertoire of important species of the main triatomine genera ...201626940473
the triatomines of northern peru, with emphasis on the ecology and infection by trypanosomes of rhodnius ecuadoriensis (triatominae).information on the distribution and synanthropic behaviour of triatomines is essential for chagas disease vector control. this work summarises such information from northern peru, and presents new data on rhodnius ecuadoriensis - an important local vector infesting 10-35% of dwellings in some zones. three species are strongly synanthropic and may be suitable targets for chemical control of domestic/peridomestic bug populations. panstrongylus herreri, the main domestic vector in the area, is prob ...200212016438
