In Colombia, high genetic variability has been found among Trypanosoma cruzi stocks isolated from different vector and host species, using isoenzyme analysis and RFLP of total kinetoplastid DNA (kDNA), suggesting that several genetically related T. cruzi populations might be present within a single geographical area or adjacent ones. The objective of this study was to use the low-stringency single primer (LSSP)-PCR technique on variable regions of kDNA minicircles of T. cruzi to determine… CONTINUE READING
