Measurements of external metabolites based on growth curve data.
Flux estimates for uptake of external metabolites such as glucose and production rates for external metabolites lactate and acetate
Mutants with a linear respiratory chain consisting of NADH Dehydrogenase II and one of the terminal oxidases cytochrom bo, cytochrome bd I or cytochrome bd II were growth in chemostats with defined oxygen supply. The amounts of biomass formed and of acetate and formate produced were determined.
Mutant strains with linear electron transport chain were grown in chemostat cultures at different defined aerobiosis levels. Expression of selected genes was determined by Real Time RT-PCR
Genes are transcribed in polysictronic messages (pre-mRNA) that are destined for either maturation into mRNAs, or degradation. Since transcription regulation is non-existent with few exceptions, the rate of pre-mRNA processing, together with mRNA decay and translation rates, are believed to control gene expression. In this assay, 2T1 blood form trypanosomes are subject to treatment by ActinomycinD for 5 minutes, inhibiting transcription. The cells are harvested, depleted for ribosomal RNA, and
Assay for the isolation of intact Plasmodium falciparum trophozoites from infected red blood cells and the preparation of a cell free extract that can be used for kinetic analyses.
TbTryS activity was measured at 37°C in the in vivo-like buffer. All substrate stock solutions were prepared in the in vivo-like buffer and the pH was adjusted to 7.0. The assays were performed in a final volume of 2 ml and contained 0.2 mM NADH, 1 mM phosphoenolpyruvate, 4 units pyruvate kinase, 4 units L-lactate dehydrogenase, 0.17 µM TbTryS, 2.1 mM ATP and varying amounts of glutathione, and spermidine.
