Additional remarks genetic modificationIn the paper it is reported that repeated attempts were made to disrupt the gene. No information/details is provided on the number of attempts to disrupt the gene, the construct used to disrupt the gene and the sequence of the primers used to amplify the target regions.

A conditional msp-1 knock-out is described in RMgm-270
