The sequences of the nuclear ribosomal DNA region spanning the first internal transcribed spacer, the 5.8S rRNA gene and the second internal transcribed spacer were determined for Ascaris samples from pigs and humans from different geographical regions. The sequences of the 5.8S gene and the second internal transcribed spacer were the same for all samples examined, whereas all Ascaris samples from humans had six (1.3%) nucleotide differences in the first internal transcribed spacer compared… CONTINUE READING
