- ... The saliva of blood sucking arthropods contains potent pharmacologically active components to counteract the host hemostatic and inflammatory systems when they take a blood meal. In the present study, dominant salivary gland transcripts of Panstrongylus chinai, a vector of Chagas disease, were analyzed by sequencing randomly selected clones of the salivary gland cDNA library. This analysis showed ...
