Molecular characterization of Brazilian human Giardia duodenalis isolates using isoenzyme and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis.

Abstract

Isoenzymes and RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) analysis were used to characterize three Brazilian human isolates of Giardia duodenalis and its clones. The Portland-1 strain (ATCC 30888) was included in the study as a reference pattern. Both methods divided the isolates into two main groups, one represented by the Portland-1 strain, the other… (More)
