Figure 1

Bioluminescence from genetically modified strain, Dm28c-luc . Firefly luciferase expression in Dm28c-luc epimastigotes was evaluated by bioluminescent emission with increasing number of parasites per well, on the microplate reader with SteadyGlo reagent (A), and by the CCD camera of the Xenogen imaging system, in the 24 well plate with D-luciferin in PBS (B). Comparison of epimastigote and trypomastigote bioluminescent emissions were made on the microplate reader, using SteadyGlo reagent and 106 parasites per well, Dm28c wild type (WT) and Dm28c-luc (GM) (C).
