Using ubiquitous primers which amplify the variable parts of kDNA minicircle of all Leishmania spp, we obtained for Leishmania (viannia) lainsoni a major band of 605 bp (band 1) shared with L. V. braziliensis and a minor 524 bp band (band 2) specific of L. V. lainsoni. The specificity of the two bands was examined through Southern blot hybridization of kDNA PCR obtained from reference strains belonging to L. braziliensis, L. mexicana, L. donovani complexes with L. V. lainsoni species. Band 1… CONTINUE READING
