The association of Streptococcus bovis endocarditis and colon carcinoma has been reported previously in small series in the medical, but not surgical, literature. Although the fecal carriage rate of S. bovis increases with colonic pathology, no explanation exists for the development of bacteremia in these cases. To explore the possible contribution of(More)
A 414-base pair fragment from a Leishmania tarentolae kinetoplast DNA minicircle has unusual physical properties. We reported previously that in comparison to phi X174 and pBR322 control fragments, the kinetoplast fragment behaves in gel electrophoresis, gel filtration, and electric dichroism experiments as if it has an unusually compact conformation. We(More)
MCP72 is a mitochondrial hsp70 protein from the trypanosomatid Crithidia fasciculata. An MCP72 cDNA clone was isolated from a C. fasciculata cDNA library by screening with antiserum specific for the homologous protein of Trypanosoma cruzi [9]. The MCP72 cDNA encodes a polypeptide of 663 amino acids which is 84% identical to the Trypanosoma cruzi protein and(More)
