We have isolated and characterised the gene encoding the glycolytic enzyme enolase (2-phospho-D-glycerate hydrolase) from the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. This was achieved using a combination of cDNA sequencing and inverse-PCR techniques. The gene maps to chromosome 10 of the parasite. We have also mapped two further glycolytic enzyme(More)
Serology for parvovirus B19 has been hampered by limited availability of antigen which has often had to be isolated from viraemic blood donations. We have determined the sequence of the genome of one such isolate (Stu). It is 99% similar to the sequences of two other isolates (Wi and Au) except at the far 5′-end, where it is more similar to the terminus of(More)
We have isolated and characterised the gene (PGK) encoding the glycolytic enzyme 3-phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) from the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. This was achieved using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify genomic DNA with primers constructed on the basis of conserved regions identified within PGK molecules of other(More)
