The first internal transcribed spacer (ITS1) of the nuclear ribosomal DNA repeat was sequenced for members of the Schistosoma japonicum species complex (S. malayensis, S. mekongi and 2 geographical isolates of S. japonicum). The ITS1 is composed of 3 distinct regions: the 5' end (23 nucleotides); a tract of approximately 90-140 nucleotides, which occurs up to 7 times in tandem, the number varying even within an individual in all species investigated in this study; the 3' region (378 nucleotides… CONTINUE READING
