Previous studies on Toxoplasma gondii population structure, based essentially on multilocus restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis or on multilocus enzyme electrophoresis, indicated that T. gondii comprises three clonal lineages. These studies showed a weak polymorphism of the markers (2-4 alleles by locus). In this study, we used eight microsatellite markers to type 84 independent isolates from humans and animals. Two microsatellite markers were present in the introns of two genes… CONTINUE READING
