Apical membrane antigen 1 (AMA-1), an asexual blood-stage antigen of Plasmodium falciparum, is an important candidate for testing as a component of a malaria vaccine. This study investigates the nature of diversity in the Plasmodium chabaudi adami homolog of AMA-1 and the impact of that diversity on the efficacy of the recombinant antigen as a vaccine(More)
The insulin receptor (INSR) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are representatives of two structurally related subfamilies of tyrosine kinase receptors. Using the Wisconsin GCG sequence analysis programs, we have demonstrated that the cysteine-rich regions of INSR and EGFR conform to the structural motif found in the tumor necrosis factor receptor(More)
In the hemopoietic system c-myb expression is required for proliferation of immature cells and its down-regulation is required for differentiation. In colonic mucosa c-myb expression occurs at levels comparable to immature hemopoietic cells. Inhibition of c-myb expression in colon cell lines, using anti-sense oligonucleotides, indicates that c-myb(More)
The Plk gene encodes a serine/threonine protein kinase believed to be important for the normal progression of mammalian cells through the cell cycle. In this paper, we report the genomic organization of the mouse Plk gene. The mouse Plk gene encompasses 16 kb of the mouse genome and is organised into 10 exons. Based on homology with the human PLK1 promoter(More)
