Identification and genetic characterization of a new Brazilian genotype of Toxoplasma gondii from sheep intended for human consumption.

Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that strains of Toxoplasma gondii in Brazil are frequently different from those detected in other countries, thus making an accurate phylogenetic analysis difficult. The aim of this study was to genetically characterize T. gondii samples from sheep raised in southern Bahia and intended for human consumption, by means of PCR… (More)
