Poly(A) binding protein I (PABPI) is a highly conserved eukaryotic protein that binds mRNA poly(A) tails and functions in the regulation of translational efficiency and mRNA stability. As a first step in our investigation of the role(s) of mRNA poly(A) tails in posttranscriptional gene regulation in Trypanosoma brucei, we have cloned the cDNA encoding PABPI(More)
A cDNA encoding ribosomal protein L24 was amplified by PCR from the protozoan parasite, Trypanosoma brucei. The 621 nucleotide cDNA had an open reading frame of 375 nucleotides, predicting a highly basic protein of 125 aa. Database searches revealed 33-40% identity between the T. brucei RPL24 protein and several eukaryotic RPL24 homologues. Southern blot(More)
