Alane Beatriz Vermelho & Maria Nazareth Leal Meirelles

Abstract

A number of glycoconjugates, including glycolipids and glycoproteins, participate in the process of host-cell invasion by  Trypanosoma  cruzi
  check for this species in other resources
 and one of the most important carbohydrates involved on this interaction is sialic acid. It is known that parasite trans-sialidase participates withsialic acid in a coordinated fashion in the initial stages of invasion. Given the importance of these sialoglycoconjugates,this review sets out various possible biological models for  the interaction between the parasite and mammalian cells that possess a sialylated receptor/ligand system.
