BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Several studies have demonstrated genetic heterogeneity in populations of Trypanosoma cruzi that allowed the identification of six different discrete typing units (DTU) classified as TcI, TcII, TcIII, TcIV, TcV and TcVI. Furthermore, some characterization studies have described genetic variability within TcI isolates from endemic(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare two extraction protocols of Trypanosoma cruzi DNA for use in DNA amplification of kinetoplast minicircles (kDNA) through the technique of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Epimastigotes of T. cruzi were cultured in axenic conditions and masses from 1.5 to 100 x 106 parasites were obtained. DNA extraction was(More)
