Molecular investigation of African isolates of Trichinella reveals genetic polymorphism in Trichinella nelsoni.


Molecular genetic studies were carried out on three isolates of Trichinella nelsoni (from Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa) and three isolates of Trichinella T8 (from South Africa and Namibia) from sylvatic carnivores and from a sylvatic swine. A probe (pT7.3) specific for T. nelsoni was obtained by screening a pUC18 genomic library. The pT7.3 sequence was… (More)
