Malaria parasites : comparative genomics, evolution, and molecular biology by Jane M Carlton( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the publication of the first two Plasmodium genome sequences in 2002, numerous other parasite genomes have been sequenced. These include the genomes of several more Plasmodium species as well as those of other apicomplexans, including species of Toxoplasma, Cryptosporidium, Babesia, and Eimeria. This wealth of genome sequence data has provided researchers with a powerful new tool, comparative genomics, which has revolutionised research in this area. In this book, expert authors from around the world comprehensively review the current advances in Plasmodium comparative genomics, highlight

Plasmodium gene regulation : far more to factor in( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gene expression in the malaria parasite has received generous attention over the past several decades, predominantly because of the importance of var gene regulation, which is key to antigenic variation and host immune evasion. However, the role of transcriptional regulation in governing other genes expressed during the various stages of development has remained less well characterized. This mostly has been due to the lack of defined transcriptional regulators in Plasmodium parasites. Here, we describe recent advances that have become possible by joining traditional biochemistry with new technological innovations. These studies have increased our understanding of the role of transcriptional regulation, not only in the control of gene expression for antigenic variation but also in the coordination of stage-specific parasite development
