Research Area

Parasites can exploit the hormonal microenvironment within the host to favor their establishment, growth and reproduction. Parasites have structures similar to the protein hormone receptors expressed in upper vertebrates that can bind to the hormonal metabolites synthesized by the host, favor the establishment, growth or reproduction of parasite. we will use the established in vitro system of E. multilocularis to understand the role of host factors in the development and differentiation of E. multilocularis, and discuss the underlying mechanism. We also wish the study will help our understanding the mechanism of host-parasite interaction. Germinal cells of E. multilocularis are totipotent stem cells, which have the capacity of self-renewal and differentiation, we will study the effect of host on the maintaining the pluripotency of germinal cells and discuss the underlying mechanism.
