Abstract

Theileria parva-infected B cells express Jagged-1 and activate Notch signalling in a parasite-dependent manner. ES-62, a filarial nemato-desecreted phosphorylcholine-containing glycoprotein, is able to further stimulate Notch-mediated signalling in parasitized cells. Notch is also activated to a similar extent by addition of exogenous IL-10, and this occurs prior to any increase in proliferation in T. parva-infected B cells.
