  • While our manuscript was being written, McRobert and McConkey [ 44 ] achieved similar success in using the RNAi strategy to ablate dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH) of P. falciparum . Although the protein level was not directly monitored, the loss of DHODH mRNA was confirmed by RT-PCR.

  • 5G-YMHA contains mutations in the reverse transcriptase motif YMDD of P (D513H and D514A) that ablate DNA polymerization [ 17].

  • However, since the 1B4 mutation did not ablate hnRNP A2/B1 gene expression, it is unlikely to be useful for studies of hnRNPA2/B1 gene function.
