The highly polymorphic 60 kDa glycoprotein (GP60) of Cryptosporidium is an important tool for investigating the epidemiology of this parasite. Characterization of the GP60 gene has only been performed for 3 of the 20 known Cryptosporidium species, and has already enabled sub-typing and source tracking of species with human significance. We have characterised a fourth species, Cryptosporidium fayeri, at the GP60 locus using isolates (n=26) from different marsupial hosts to assess the diversity… CONTINUE READING
