The identity of Leishmania tarentolae Wenyon 1921.
Morphogenesis of the parasites led to a stable population of promastigotes which were identical, in general morphology, ultrastructure and the electrophoretic mobility of 8 enzymes, to those cultures previously considered to be Leishmania tarentolae Wenyon, 1921. Expand
[Enzymatic typing of 11 strains of Leishmania isolated in mainland Italy from the visceral murine, canine and vulpine forms. Demonstration of an enzymatic variant in the fox (Vulpes vulpes) and the
The combined data revealed that four Rattus rattus and four dogs were infected with classical L. infantum and an enzyme variant which differed in four of the 12 enzymes examined raise the question of the heterogeneity of the parasites causing visceral leishmaniasis. Expand
[Ecology of leishmaniasis in Southern France. 18. Enzymatic identification of Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908, isolated from Phlebotomus ariasi Tonnoir, 1921, spontaneously infected in the
Out of 187 female Phlebotomus ariasi caught in the Cévennes focus of leishmaniasis 3 were found naturally infected with Leishmania. The infection in one of the three had spread from the midgut to theExpand
[Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908, the agent of the autochthonous oriental sore. Apropos of the biochemical identification of 2 strains isolated in the eastern Pyrenees].
Two strains of parasites isolated from cases of oriental sore in the Pyrénées-Orientales were identified by electrophoretic analysis of eight isoenzymes, and both strains were identical with Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908, which normally causes visceral leishmaniasis. Expand
[The application of a numerical method to the taxonomy of the genus Leishmania Ross, 1903,--The recognition of 146 original lines in the Old World. Use of allozymic characters. Epidemiological and
Using enzyme characters determined by starch gel electrophoresis, the authors have applied the method of Numerical Taxonomy to the genus Leishmania Ross, 1903 and produced a new dendrogram, attesting both a common origin and a more recent evolutionary divergence. Expand
[A new enzymatic variant of Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908, agent of cutaneous leishmaniasis in northern Algeria].
Until now, the dermotropic zymodemes of Algeria and France have not been seen in cases of visceral leishmaniasis of the Mediterranean Basin. Expand
[Significance of enzymatic polymorphism in Leishmaniae--On three heterozygous stocks of Leishmania infantum Nicolle, 1908, Leishmania cf. tarentolae Wenyon, 1921 and Leishmania aethiopica Bray,
The results are comparable to those seen in eukaryotic organism with sexual reproduction and suggest that leishmaniae have diploid structures and a process of genetic exchange. Expand
