Plasmodium vivax circumsporozoite genotypes: a limited variation or new subspecies with major biological consequences?

Abstract

Plasmodium vivax circumsporozoite variants have been identified in several geographical areas. The real implication of the genetic variation in this region of the P. vivax genome has been questioned for a long time. Although previous studies have observed significant association between VK210 and the Duffy blood group, we present here that evidences of this… (More)
