Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and DNA hybridization were used to establish and compare some parameters of the molecular karyotype of nine stocks classified into Trypanosoma cruzi I and T. cruzi II groups. The isolates showed a variable number of chromosomal bands (17-22) comprised between 0.4 and 3.3 Mbp. The total number of chromosomes and the genome size were estimated based on the fluorescence intensity of SYBR Green I-stained chromosomal bands. Differences in the length of the telomeric… CONTINUE READING
