Mapping of VSG genes on large expression-site chromosomes of Trypanosoma brucei separated by pulsed-field gradient electrophoresis

Gene

Jan 1, 1986

P J Johnson, P Borst

Abstract

We have modified the conditions for pulsed-field gradient electrophoresis of Trypanosoma brucei (strain 427) to resolve large chromosomes, which previously comigrated, into five distinct chromosome bands. Mapping of four different variant surface glycoprotein (VSG) genes, which were dup...read more

African Trypanosomiasis

African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is an insect-borne parasitic disease of humans and other animals. It is caused by protozoa of the species Trypanosoma brucei and almost invariably progresses to death unless treated. Discover the latest research on African trypanosomiasis here.

Chromosomal Translocation

Chromosomal Translocation occur when regions on two chromosomes breaks and swaps places or when a region is attached to another chromosome. Discover the latest research on Chromosomal Translocation here.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.
