A phosphoglycerate kinase-related gene conserved between Trypanosoma brucei and Crithidia fasciculata.

Trypanosoma brucei and Crithidia fasciculata both contain three different phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) genes, A, B and C, in a tandem array. The genes B and C encode the major PGKs: the cytosolic and glycosomal PGKs, respectively. The PGK-A genes of both Trypanosomatid species encode open reading frames related to PGK, which have most active site residues… CONTINUE READING
