Gene expression in Leishmania: analysis of essential 5' DNA sequences.


A major unanswered question in Kinetoplastida parasites is the mechanism of regulating gene expression. Using a transfection system, we have previously shown that the intergenic region of the alpha-tubulin gene of Leishmania enriettii contained sequences required for gene expression. The goal of the work reported here was to determine whether the Leishmania… (More)
