“Strategies for new and improved vaccines against ticks and tick-borne diseases. de la Fuente J, Kopáček P, Lew-Tabor A, Maritz-Olivier C. Parasite Immunol. 2016”Illustration for Dr. Kopacek.
Two illustrations were designed for Dr. David Dolezel (Institute of Entomology, Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic): the graphical abstract and one figure for main text of the following paper: “Photoperiod regulates growth of male accessory glands through juvenile hormone signaling in the linden bug, Pyrrhocoris apterus. Urbanová V, Bazalová O, Vaněčková H, Dolezel D. Insect Biochem Mol Biol. 2016 Jan 27. pii: S0965-1748(16)30003-0. doi: 10.1016/j.ibmb.2016.01.003. [Epub ahead of print].”
BioGraphix designed the figure for the following publication by Prof. M. Jindra in PNAS: “Something “hairy” in juvenile hormone signaling for mosquito reproduction. Jindra M. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2016 Jan 22. pii: 201524895. [Epub ahead of print].” The illustration depicts the mosquito female (Aedes aegypti) and the gene regulation by JH signaling.
Image designed by BioGraphix has been published in the booklet that introduces scientific strategies and achievements in the Biology Centre, Czech Academy of Sciences. The illustration represents the “Discovery of the juvenile hormone receptor” by Prof. Marek Jindra. Effects of juvenile hormone (JH) on insect metamorphosis have been known for 80 years but the mode of JH action until recently remained a mystery. A receptor for this unique arthropod hormone eluded identification.
BioGraphix designed a graphical abstract for the story published in “Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology”. “Juvenile hormone signaling during reproduction and development of the linden bug, Pyrrhocoris apterus. Smykal V, Bajgar A, Provaznik J, Fexova S, Buricova M, Takaki K, Hodkova M, Jindra M, Dolezel D. Insect Biochem Mol Biol. 2014 Feb;45:69-76. doi: 10.1016/j.ibmb.2013.12.003. Epub 2013 Dec 19.”
An illustration designed for the review : “Interaction of the tick immune system with transmitted pathogens. Hajdusek et al. Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, 2013.” A model depicts tick immune mechanisms that constitute a potential barrier against pathogen transmissions. Read more: http://bit.ly/1awWnWL
BioGraphix contributed four figures to the review about tick immune system written by Hajdusek et al. The paper is published in “Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology” and advertised on the Nature Facebook. “Interaction of the tick immune system with transmitted pathogens. Hajdušek O, Síma R, Ayllón N, Jalovecká M, Perner J, de la Fuente J, Kopáček P. Front Cell Infect Microbiol. 2013 Jul 16;3:26.” Read more: http://bit.ly/1awWnWL
