Cloning and characterisation of cDNA encoding the Trypanosoma brucei ribosomal protein L24.


A cDNA encoding ribosomal protein L24 was amplified by PCR from the protozoan parasite, Trypanosoma brucei. The 621 nucleotide cDNA had an open reading frame of 375 nucleotides, predicting a highly basic protein of 125 aa. Database searches revealed 33-40% identity between the T. brucei RPL24 protein and several eukaryotic RPL24 homologues. Southern blot… (More)
