  • The taxonomic validity of morphological group III Acanthamoeba spp. is uncertain. In the present study, six type strains of group III Acanthamoeba spp., A. culbertsoni, A. healyi, A. pustulosa, A. palestinensis, A. royreba and A. lenticulata were subjected for the evaluation of their taxonomic validity by comparison of the isoenzyme patterns by isoelectic focusing on polyacrylamide gels, mitochondrial DNA (Mt DNA) restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), and small subunit ribosomal DNA… CONTINUE READING
