New DiCre expressing P. falciparum line available!

Mike Blackman, NIMR, London, has kindly deposited  the  Plasmodium falciparum clone 1G5DiCre  for DiCre-mediated gene knock-down and selectable marker recycling. This is a novel knockout system which can produce constitutively DiCre-expressing P. falciparum clones that have broad utility for the functional analysis of essential asexual blood-stage parasite genes. The plasmid pHH1-SERA5del3preDiCre is also available.
