High throughput sequencing has accelerated the determination of genome sequences for thousands of human infectious disease pathogens and dozens of their vectors. The scale and scope of these data are enabling genotype-phenotype association studies to identify genetic determinants of pathogen virulence and drug/insecticide resistance, and phylogenetic(More)
The voltage-sensitive Na+ channel is responsible for the action potential of membrane electrical excitability in neuronal tissue. Three methods were used to demonstrate the presence of neurotoxin-responsive Na+ channels in two hybrid cell lines resulting from the fusion of excitable human neuroblastoma cells with mouse fibroblasts. Only one of the two(More)
