    G A Cross
    Rockefeller University, New York, NY 10021 6399, USA
    Bioessays 18:283-91. 1996
    ..There is every reason to expect trypanosomes to provide further surprises and insights into the evolution of genetic regulatory mechanisms...
  2. ncbi request reprint Regulation of vsg expression site transcription and switching in Trypanosoma brucei
    G A Cross
    The Rockefeller University, New York, NY 10021, USA
    Mol Biochem Parasitol 91:77-91. 1998
    ..Precedents for regulatory mechanisms that modulate transcription over large chromatin domains are reviewed and possible models for ES regulation are presented...
  3. ncbi request reprint Functional complementation of glycoprotein 72 in a Trypanosoma cruzi glycoprotein 72 null mutant
    T Nozaki
    Laboratory of Molecular Parasitology, Rockefeller University, New York, NY 10021
    Mol Biochem Parasitol 67:91-102. 1994
    ..26. Restoration of morphology reflects recovery of the carbohydrate epitope, suggesting that the novel glycosylation of GP72 is the limiting step in the expression of its function...

    M Hoek
    Laboratory of Molecular Parasitology, The Rockefeller University, New York, NY 10021, USA
    J Cell Sci 113:3959-68. 2000
    ..This same sequence functioned only as an NLS in mammalian cells, supporting the idea that nucleolar accumulation requires specific interactions. These results have implications for models of ESAG8 function...

    Mol Biochem Parasitol 82:245-55. 1996
    ..Fla1 from both life-cycle stages is N-glycosylated. Fla1 from bloodstream-form T. brucei contains additional glycans, which can be liberated by treatment with mild acid, suggestive of phosphodiester linkages...
