[…] a Fruchterman–Reingold layout. Clusters were also specified by Gephi and their representative annotations were referenced from GCA_000981445.1_Bbig001_genomic.gff for B. bigemina provided by NCBI and PiroplasmaDB-5.1_BbovisT2Bo.gff for B. bovis provided by PiroplasmaDB. The annotation for VESA was acquired from the FTP site provided by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. Reordering of the B. ovat […]


Human babesiosis: Indication of a molecular mimicry between thrombospondin domains from a novel Babesia microti BmP53 protein and host platelets molecules

PLoS One
PMCID: 5644982
PMID: 29040286
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0185372

[…] ned for thrombospondin type 1 domain (TSP1)-containing proteins by request for annotated domain in InterPro (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/entry/IPR000884/proteins-matched?taxonomy=1133968). We used PiroplasmaDB (http://piroplasmadb.org/piro/) to visualize gene models and recover DNA and amino acid sequences. PiroplasmaDB is also a good interface to InterPro motifs predictions. B. microti RNAseq […]

[…] model [] and were conducted in MEGA7 []. The analysis involved 54 amino acid sequences of the putative Cdk-related kinases from T. gondii (Tg, ToxoDB), P. falciparum (Pf, PlasmoDB), T. annulata (TA, PiroplasmaDB), C. parvum (Cgd, CryptoDB), C. velia (Cvel, CryptoDB) and pre-selected Cdks from human cells (Hs, ncbi.org) that are listed in . All positions containing gaps and missing data were elimi […]

Babesia bovis, Babesia microti, Theileria annulata, and Theileria parva were downloaded from PiroplasmaDB (http://piroplasmadb.org/, last accessed June, 2014) (version 3.0). Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum were downloaded from ToxoDB () (version 8.2). Orthologs were clustered with WU-B […]

Tandem MS data were searched against a custom database that contained the common contamination and internal standards, PiroplasmaDB-3.0_TannulataAnkara_AnnotatedProteins and UniProt_Bos_taurus (Bovine) reviewed proteins. The search parameters were as follows; precursor mass tolerance was set to 10 ppm and fragment mas […]
