Phylogenetic character mapping of RADES Probing, a new marker for exploring the clonal evolution of expressed coding sequences in Trypanosoma cruzi, the agent of Chagas disease.

Abstract

We have tested a new genetic marker, RADES Probing (RADES-P), on a standard sample of 19 laboratory-cloned stocks of Trypanosoma cruzi, the agent of Chagas disease. This set of stocks, fully characterized using multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), is representative of this parasite's main genetic subdivisions… (More)
