The pir genes comprise the largest multi-gene family in Plasmodium, with members found in P. vivax, P. knowlesi and the rodent malaria species. Despite comprising up to 5% of the genome, little is known about the functions of the proteins encoded by pir genes. P. chabaudi causes chronic infection in mice, which may be due to antigenic variation. In this(More)
Chemiluminescent reporter gene assays provide highly sensitive, quantitative detection in simple, rapid assay formats for detection of reporter enzymes that are widely employed in gene expression studies. Chemiluminescent detection methodologies typically provide up to 100-1000x higher sensitivities than may be achieved with fluorescent or colorimetric(More)
