Table 4 Gene models modified by FcB1-schizont-ESTs.

From: A Plasmodium falciparum FcB1-schizont-EST collection providing clues to schizont specific gene structure and polymorphism

[Gene] (a) [Product Description] (b) [Pf-iRBC max expr time (GS array)] (c) [Pf-iRBC+Spz+Gam max expr stage (Affy)] (d) # of ESTs (e) modified in gene model (f)

  1. This table, derived from Additional file 1, lists the 14 P. falciparum genes whose gene models were corrected based on FcB1-schizont-ESTs. Columns (a) to (e) are as described in the Table 3 legend. The last column (f) details each modification. Note that three genes in this list were both modified/confirmed (in different parts): MAL8P1.73, PFE1490c and PFL0290w. Asterisks (*) in this last column refer to examples illustrated in Additional file 4. The model revision proposed for PFI0905w (**) will need to be confirmed by other experimental data since these 4 ESTs also matched P. falciparum telomerase RNA (see Additional file 10).
