Transient expression of beta-galactosidase in differentiating sporozoites of Eimeria tenella.


A transient transfection system has been developed for a member of the Apicomplexa, Eimeria tenella, using beta-galactosidase (betagal) from Escherichia coli as the reporter enzyme. Successfully expressed constructs contained sequences of the E. tenella microneme gene Etmic-1 fused to the coding region of lacZ. Transfectants expressing betagal were able to… (More)
