The Trypanosoma cruzi ribosomal RNA-encoding gene: analysis of promoter and upstream intergenic spacer sequences.
TLDR
The data described in this paper strongly indicate that the IGS rDNA (DNA coding for rRNA) organization in trypanosomatids appears similar to that found in higher eukaryotes. Expand
Disruption of largest subunit RNA polymerase II genes in Trypanosoma brucei.
TLDR
It is concluded that the alpha-amanitin-resistant transcription of protein coding genes in T. brucei is not mediated by a diverged form of the largest subunit of pol II and that the presence of both the pol IIA and pol IIB genes is not essential for trypanosome viability. Expand
Restriction fragment length polymorphisms in the ribosomal gene spacers of Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma conorhini.
TLDR
It is shown that strains of T. cruzi can be typed according to the characteristic restriction fragment length polymorphism of their NTS DNAs. Expand
Disruption of largest subunit RNA polymerase II genes in Trypanosoma brucei
Two types of largest subunit RNA polymerase II (pol II) genes (pol IIA and pol IIB), differing in 3 amino acid substitutions, are encoded in the Trypanosoma brucei (stock 427-60) genome. As a result,Expand
