Identification of nucleoli in the early branching protist Giardia duodenalis

, : Identification of nucleoli in the early branching protist Giardia duodenalis. International Journal for Parasitology 38(11): 1297-1304

Giardia duodenalis has been described as 'anucleolated'. In this work we analysed the subcellular distribution of several nucleolar markers in Giardia nuclei using silver and immunostaining techniques for electron and confocal laser microscopy as well as expression of epitope-tagged proteins in transgenic trophozoites. We identified anteronuclear fibrogranular structures corresponding to nucleolar organizing regions with recruited ribonucleoprotein complexes, rRNA and epitope-tagged fibrillarin and rRNA-pseudouridine synthase (CBF5). Recombinant fibrillarin and CBF5 were targeted to this subcompartment. This study demonstrates the presence of nucleoli in G. duodenalis and provides a model to analyse minimal requirements for nucleolar assembly and maintenance in eukaryotic cells.

Access to a quiet side in one's dwelling is thought to compensate for higher noise levels at the most exposed façade. It has also been indicated that noise from combined traffic sources causes more noise annoyance than equal average levels f...

Impairment of macrophage phagocytosis is a major cause of chronic inflammation. Bisphosphonates (BPs) are widely used as anti-osteoclastic agents. The effects of BPs on monocyte-macrophage lineage cells are being increasingly reported; however, th...
