  1. The general transcription factors predicted in this study are listed with the corresponding sequences in Plasmodium yoelii yoelii, Plasmodium chabaudii and Plasmodium berghei. Reciprocal searches were performed using each predicted transcription factor, leading to the finding of similarities with the corresponding subunit in the crown group eukaryotes (see comments in the text; + stands for significant, B stands for background (E value >0.005)). The percentages of identity with the P. falciparum sequences are indicated (tl stands for calculated on the total length of the Plasmodium sequences), as well as the lengths of the considered protein sequences. $ : calculated on the similarity regions discussed in the text *: likely uncomplete sequence; °: presently corrected sequence; genomic: found in the genomic sequences, using TBASTN. 2.1.2.
