Control of tubulin gene expression in the parasitic protozoan Leishmania enriettii.

Abstract

The life cycle of parasitic protozoa of the genus Leishmania consists of two morphologically distinct forms: (1) amastigotes, the form of the parasite that resides inside macrophages of the mammalian host, which are non-motile and possess only a residual flagellum; and (2) promastigotes, the extracellular forms that live in the gut of the sandfly vector… (More)
