Lab information

We study host-parasite interactions from both perspectives, using model hosts. Our interest is in how hosts recognize and initiate an immune response to parasites and how parasites evade and/or suppress immunity. We study parasite host-seeking behavior and olfaction using parasitic nematodes. To investigate how parasites evade and/or suppress host immunity we are studying which proteins are involved in this process and are working to identify their targets.

Chemotaxis and Jumping Assays in Nematodes
Authors:  Tiffany Baiocchi and Adler R. Dillman, date: 09/20/2015, view: 3135, Q&A: 0
Nematodes have sensitive olfactory perception, which is used to detect and differentiate many volatile odorants. Some odorants are attractive, others repulsive, and yet others evoke no particular response. Chemotaxis assays can be used to determine ...

Drosophila Model of Leishmania amazonensis Infection
Authors:  Kendi Okuda and Neal Silverman, date: 12/05/2017, view: 400, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes how to generate and harvest antibody-free L. amazonensis amastigotes, and how to infect adult Drosophila melanogaster with these parasites. This model recapitulates key aspects of the interactions between ...

Live Imaging of Axonal Transport in the Motor Neurons of Drosophila Larvae
Authors:  Tsuyoshi Inoshita, Nobutaka Hattori and Yuzuru Imai, date: 12/05/2017, view: 407, Q&A: 0
Axonal transport, which is composed of microtubules, motor proteins and a variety of types of cargo, is a prominent feature of neurons. Monitoring these molecular dynamics is important to understand the biological processes of neurons as well as ...
