Proline modulates the Trypanosoma cruzi resistance to reactive oxygen species and drugs through a novel D, L-proline transporter
(Public Library of Science, 2014-03)
Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas' disease, has a metabolism largely based on the consumption of glucose and proline. This amino acid is essential for host cells infection and intracellular differentiation. ...
Evaluation of proline analogs as trypanocidal agents through the inhibition of a Trypanosoma cruzi proline transporter
(Elsevier Science, 2017-08)
Background: Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas disease, uses proline as its main carbon source, essential for parasite growth and stage differentiation in epimastigotes and amastigotes. Since proline is ...
L-Proline uptake in Crithidia deanei is influenced by its endosymbiont bacterium
Crithidia deanei, a monoxenic trypanosomatid, presents an endosymbiotic bacterium in its cytoplasm. Both the protozoan and the bacterium maintain intensive metabolic exchange, resulting in an interesting model to study the ...
Distribution of glycine-betaine and proline in water stressed and unstressed barley leaves
The concentration of proline was found to be similar in the epidermis, the vascular bundles and mesophyll parenchyma protoplasts of barley seedlings. In stressed leaves, proline was accumulated mainly in the vascular bundles ...
Salinity effects on protein content, lipid peroxidation, pigments, and proline in Paulownia imperialis (Siebold & Zuccarini) and Paulownia fortunei (Seemann & Hemsley) grown in vitro
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2010)
Drought-induced proline synthesis depends on root-to-shoot communication mediated by light perception
Proline accumulation in roots and shoots is one of the most evident responses to environmental stresses such as drought, which is currently one of the main threats for agriculture. Based on this response, in this work, we ...
