Role of the low density microfilariae carrier in the transmission of lymphatic filariasis

, : Role of the low density microfilariae carrier in the transmission of lymphatic filariasis. Medecine et Maladies Infectieuses 7(8): 375-376

A man aged 32 years resided in Tahiti for 3 years and then began to show symptoms of lymphatic filariasis. Blood examinations including concentration and filtration techniques failed to show microfilariae, but the serum was positive to Dirofilaria antigen at a titre of 1:64. Aedes polynesiensis mosquitoes were fed on him, and when they were dissected after 15 days, 5 larvae of Wuchereria bancrofti were found in one of them.

Polyadenylated mature mRNAs are the focus of standard transcriptome analyses. However, the profiling of nascent transcripts, which often include nonpolyadenylated RNAs, can unveil novel insights into transcriptional regulation. Here, we separately...
