Data from: Endemic infection reduces transmission potential of an epidemic parasite during co-infection

Joanna Randall, Joanne Cable, Irina A. Guschina, John L. Harwood & Joanne Lello
Endemic, low-virulence parasitic infections are common in nature. Such infections may deplete host resources, which in turn could affect the reproduction of other parasites during co-infection. We aimed to determine whether the reproduction, and therefore transmission potential, of an epidemic parasite was limited by energy costs imposed on the host by an endemic infection. Total lipids, triacylglycerols (TAG) and polar lipids were measured in cockroaches (Blattella germanica) that were fed ad libitum, starved or infected...
