The proton-dependent oligopeptide transporters (POT) gene family currently consists of approximately 70 cloned cDNAs derived from diverse organisms. In mammals, two genes encoding peptide transporters, PepT1 and PepT2 have been cloned in several species including humans, in addition to a rat histidine/peptide transporter (rPHT1). Because the Candida elegans(More)
Giardia lamblia, a parasitic protozoan, has been regarded as one of the most conserved eukaryotes evolved from the prokaryotes. One of its unique features appears to be the unusually short 5'-untranslated regions (UTR) (1-6 nucleotides (nts)) and the apparent absence of 5'-cap structures from its mRNAs. Transfection of the Giardia trophozoites with(More)
