A gene (pfhsp86) encoding a member of the heat-shock protein 90 (HSP90) family has been isolated from Plasmodium falciparum (Pf). The pfhsp86 coding region comprises two exons separated by an 0.8-kb intron with consensus splice junction sequences. The transcript itself is 3.4-kb long and includes a 0.65-kb 5'-untranslated region (UTR) and a 0.54-kb 3'-UTR. Upstream of the transcription start point (tsp) are putative promoter modules: an inverted CCAAT box, a G + C-rich sequence and several TATA… CONTINUE READING
