The cDNA encoding the Schistosoma mansoni dolichol phosphate mannose synthase was completely sequenced, displaying the highest homology with Cricetulus griseus and Saccharomyces pombe genes. The Schistosome enzyme had a K(m) of 0.127 microM, a value that is within the range of those reported for several other species. Thin-layer chromatography of the… CONTINUE READING
