Schistosoma mansoni: germ-line transformation approaches and actin-promoter analysis.

Abstract

Towards germ-line transformation miracidia were biolistically transformed with GFP reporter gene constructs and successfully reintroduced into the schistosome cycle. By PCR and confocal microscopy the presence and the expression of GFP were confirmed in cercariae or adults of the F(0) and F(1) generations. This indicated the presence of the constructs in… (More)
