Origins of microsatellite diversity in the Trichophyton rubrum-T. violaceum clade (Dermatophytes).

Abstract

We analyzed the population structure of the anthropophilic dermatophyte species Trichophyton violaceum, which mainly causes tinea capitis, and T. rubrum, the most frequently isolated agent of dermatophytosis worldwide. A microsatellite marker (T1) was developed by using the enrichment technique for microsatellites. The T1 marker containing a (GT)(8-10… (More)
