matplotlib: dynamically generated Tex xlabels

Dear, All,

I am using matplotlib's rc to label x axes:
rc('text', usetex=True)
pl.xlabel(r'\textbf{Residue}')
I would like to use something more dynamic like:

la='5';pl.xlabel(r'\textbf{Residue }%s',fontsize=18) %la

But i get:
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for %: 'instance' and 'str'
if la is float and int the error is reported accordingly..

How would be the best way to go about it?

with eval I was aiming at resolving the problem but so far I failed...

best regards
Juergen

Move the %la inside:
xlabel(r'\textbf{Residue }%s'%la,fontsize=18)
