Molecular karyotype of related clones of Entamoeba histolytica.


The molecular karyotype of 3 clones derived from strain HM1:IMSS of Entamoeba histolytica was studied by transverse alternating field electrophoresis. 11-20 bands ranging between 0.3 and over 3 Mb were resolved. Hybridization with total DNA detected highly repetitive sequences in the slow-migrating molecules, while non-repetitive sequences were located in… (More)
