The prokaryotic tetracycline-responsive repressor/operator system has proven to be useful for studying the function of essential genes and the expression of toxic gene products in a number of organisms, including Trypanosoma brucei. We report here the adaptation of this system for use in Leishmania. The inducible promoter construct contains a bleomycin resistance-luciferase fusion (BLE-LUC) gene driven by an rRNA promoter with two copies of the TetO sequence inserted two nucleotides upstream of… CONTINUE READING
