Trypanosoma cruzi: inoculation schedules and re-isolation methods select individual strains from doubly infected mice, as demonstrated by schizodeme and zymodeme analyses.
The results demonstrate that more than one strain of T. cruzi can coexist in the same host; the timing and method of parasite isolation from the vertebrate host act as selective factors, and further passages may completely eliminate one (or more) strain from originally mixed trypanosome population.

The complexity of Trypanosoma cruzi populations revealed by schizodeme analysis.
Progress in characterizing the parasites by analysis of their isoenzyme (or isozyme)_profiles is discussed, while Carlos Morel and his coworkers in Brazil discuss the more recent analysis of kinetoplast DNA (schizodeme analysis) in attempts to understand the heterogeneity of this intriguing parasite.

Enzyme polymorphism in Endotrypanum and numerical analysis of isoenzyme data.
The data indicate that E. schaudinni is a species complex and the heterogeneous population showed, however, no correlation with the origin (i.e. host species involved or geographic area of isolation) of Endotrypanum stocks. Expand
[Spontaneous toxoplasmosis in domestic and wild animals in São Paulo].
Trypanosomatidae isolated from Zelus leucogrammus (Perty, 1834) (Hemiptera, Reduviidae), with a discussion on flagellates of insectivorous bugs.
The Blastocrithidia was thought to belong to a single species and to be a parasite proper of Z. leucogrammus, producing luxuriant infections in the intestinal tract of the bugs captured in nature and spreading easily among isolated populations through cannibalism and ingestion of cysts. Expand
