This work evaluated the role of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) in the pathogenesis of morpho-functional damage during equine cyathostominosis, a major equine parasitic disease. 5-LOX expression and activity appear significantly increased in animals infected with cyathostomins resistant to anthelmintic drugs when compared to horses infected by susceptible isolates, thus suggesting a certain involvement of this enzyme in the infection.[...]

Abstract

This work evaluated the role of the enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) in the pathogenesis of morpho-functional damage during equine cyathostominosis, a major equine parasitic disease. 5-LOX expression and activity appear significantly increased in animals infected with cyathostomins resistant to anthelmintic drugs when compared to horses infected by susceptible isolates, thus suggesting a certain involvement of this enzyme in the infection.[...]
