Leishmania major Friedlin (LmjF) is a kinetoplastid protozoan whose genomic sequence has been recently elucidated. About 60% of the identified genes do not have a known function, and many are trypanosomatid-specific. Here we characterise two adjacent genes from LmjF chromosome 1 (chr1): LmjF01.0750, which encodes a predicted protein with a serine/threonine protein kinase motif and LmjF01.0760, which encodes a product with no similarity to other known proteins. Orthologues of both genes are… CONTINUE READING
