The genomic organisation of the genes coding for a group of high molecular mass rhoptry proteins of the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium yoelii YM was investigated using blotting, two dimensional gel electrophoresis and restriction fragment length analysis. The genes were found on chromosomes 1, 5, 6 and 10, with the possibility that related genes were also present on chromosomes 3 and 4. On chromosome 1 the genes were located close to one end, whereas they were present at both ends of… CONTINUE READING
