We show that in Dictyostelium discoideum an endogenous gene as well as a transgene can be silenced by introduction of a gene construct that is transcribed into a hairpin RNA. Gene silencing was accompanied by the appearance of sequence-specific RNA about 23mers and seemed to have a limited capacity. The three Dictyostelium homologues of the RNA-directed RNA… (More)
In previous work, we cloned a Candida albicans cDNA for the glycolytic enzyme enolase and found a single, abundant enolase transcript on Northern (RNA) blots and a single protein on immunoblots, using antiserum raised against a recombinant enolase fusion protein. Because C. albicans enolase is abundantly produced during infection and elicits strong host… (More)
A method for separating strains of Candida albicans into nine possible groups was devised by using a cDNA probe for enolase and Southern blot analysis. Twenty-three isolates of C. albicans were found to be distributed among eight of the groups. Fifteen isolates from a single hospital segregated into four of the groups.
