About Acanthocheilonema viteae

The nematode Acanthocheilonema viteae is a filarial parasite of rodents. It is widely used as a model for human filariases. Importantly, A. viteae lacks the Wolbachia bacterial endosymbiont found in most human-infective filarial nematodes. Thus this species has become central in efforts to understand the role of the Wolbachia in the nematode-bacterial symbiosis, and in particular its possible role in immune evasion.

Genome assembly: nAv.1.0

The A. viteae genome has been sequenced by the Blaxter laboratory at University of Edinburgh. The assembly version represented here is nAv1.0, obtained from nematodes.org.

Gene annotation

The gene predictions were made by the Blaxter laboratory at the University of Edinburgh. The version represented here is nAv.1.0.1 from nematodes.org.

What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.

Comparative genomics

What can I find? Orthologues, paralogues, and gene trees across multiple species.
