The 6-kb element of Plasmodium falciparum encodes mitochondrial cytochrome genes


, : The 6-kb element of Plasmodium falciparum encodes mitochondrial cytochrome genes. Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology 52.1: 145-148

The 6-kb tandemly repeated linear extrachromosomal element in P. falciparum was sequenced, and found to encode fragmented and abbreviated rRNA genes and 3 open reading frames with homology to classical mitochondrial protein coding genes. The open reading frames encode: a protein homologous to cytochrome b (97% amino acid sequence conservation with P. yoelii and 94% with P. gallinaceum); cytochrome oxidase I (99% amino acid sequence conservation with P. gallinaceum and 97% with P. yoelii); cytochrome oxidase III (95% and 94% conserved relative to P. gallinaceum and P. yoelii).

In this study. the nucleotide sequence of the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase from Plasmodium vivax has been compared to the same enzyme from another malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. It was found that the identity between two sequences was 74....
