Trypanosoma brucei undergoes major biochemical and morphological changes during its development from the bloodstream form in the mammalian host to the procyclic form in the midgut of its insect host. The underlying regulation of gene expression, however, is poorly understood. More than 60% of the predicted genes remain annotated as hypothetical, and the 5' and 3' untranslated regions important for regulation of gene expression are unknown for >90% of the genes. In this review, we compare the… CONTINUE READING
