Leishmania, causing zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) in the Old World are mainly transmitted by the predominant sand fly vector, Phlebotomus papatasi. To date, there is no(More)
Decapping is a critical step in mRNA decay. In the 5'-to-3' mRNA decay pathway conserved in all eukaryotes, decay is initiated by poly(A) shortening, and oligoadenylated mRNAs (but not polyadenylated mRNAs) are selectively decapped allowing their subsequent degradation by 5' to 3' exonucleolysis. The highly conserved heptameric Lsm1p-7p complex (made up of(More)
