Repetitive sequences were identified in genomic libraries of Plasmodium falciparum and analyzed for their potential use as specific DNA probes. Nucleotide sequencing revealed inserts composed of 21 base pair tandem repeats. Clone 26 containing an insert of 147 base pairs in M13mp18 was used in three different approaches as a probe to detect P. falciparum(More)

Probes pRepHind, Rep20, p242B1-1, pPF-14, clone 26 and 34 were compared for their applicability to detect P. falciparum in field conditions. Ninety four clinical samples from patients living in the malaria endemic area of Tumaco (Pacific Coast) plus 88 from Villavicencio (Eastern Plains) were tested in "dotblot" hybridization experiments. Probes Rep20,(More)
