Q:

Do you have a protocol for the Nucleofection™ of Plasmodium yoelii?

A:

Yes. You can use our new Basic Parasite Nucleofector™ Starter kit for parasitic protozoa. The Basic Parasite Nucleofector Starter Kit (Cat.No. VMI-1001) should help you to determine the optimal program and Nucleofector Solution for your parasite-of-interest before using either Basic Parasite Nucleofector Kit 1 or 2. We have excellent data for Plasmodium yoelii published in Molecular And Biochemical Parasitology. Details of the Nucleofection™ procedure are described in: Improved transfection and new selectable markers for the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium yoelii.
