Signal transduction in Pneumocystis carinii: characterization of the genes (pcg1) encoding the alpha subunit of the G protein (PCG1) of Pneumocystis carinii carinii and Pneumocystis carinii ratti



Signal transduction in Pneumocystis carinii: characterization of the genes (pcg1) encoding the alpha subunit of the G protein (PCG1) of Pneumocystis carinii carinii and Pneumocystis carinii ratti



Infection and Immunity 64(3): 691-701



Signal transduction pathways in P. carinii were characterized by cloning a G-protein alpha subunit (G- alpha ) of P. carinii carinii and P. carinii ratti by PCR amplification and hybridization screening. The gene encoding the G- alpha was present in single copy on a 450-kb chromosome of P. carinii carinii and on a 420-kb chromosome of P. carinii ratti. The 1062-bp G- alpha open reading fame is interrupted by 9 introns.
