Since the genotype of human Blastocystis hominis isolates is highly polymorphic, PCR-based genotype classification using known sequenced-tagged site (STS) primers would allow the identification or classification of different genotypes. Five populations of human B. hominis isolates obtained from Japan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Germany, and Thailand were subjected to genotype analysis by using seven kinds of STS primers. Ninety-nine out of 102 isolates were identified as one of the known genotypes… Expand
Genetic variability of Blastocystis hominis isolates in China
TLDR
The results showed that subtype 1 was more a popular genotype in China than other B. hominis subtypes obtained from five geographically different countries, suggesting a possible relationship between sub type 1 and a pathogenic potential of this parasite. Expand
PCR-based identification of zoonotic isolates of Blastocystis from mammals and birds.
TLDR
PCR-based genotype classification using known sequence-tagged site (STS) primers allows identification of zoonotic isolates of animal origin and places the unknown genotype of human origin into an additional clade in the small-subunit rRNA gene phylogeny. Expand
Subtype identification of Blastocystis spp. isolated from patients in a major hospital in northeastern Thailand
The present study is aimed to identify the prevalence of Blastocystis subtypes isolated from patients in a major hospital in northeastern Thailand. A total of 562 stool samples were examined byExpand
Predominance of subtype 3 among Blastocystis isolates from a major hospital in Singapore
TLDR
For the first time, riboprinting using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was used to determine the genetic diversity of the Blastocystis isolated from the Singapore population, and the prevalence rate was determined to be 3.3% and two main ribotypes were isolated.

PCR-based molecular characterization of Blastocystis hominis subtypes in southwest of Iran.
TLDR
This is the first study in the population of Ahvaz and indicates the high prevalence of ST3 in this area and suggests a possible association between this subtype and pathogenic potential of parasite. Expand
Subtype distribution of Blastocystis isolates identified in a Sydney population and pathogenic potential of Blastocystis
TLDR
The high incidence of subtype 3 (44 %) in this population is reported and the emerging idea of sub type-dependent pathogenicity is discussed. Expand
CR-based molecular characterization of Blastocystis hominis subtypes n southwest of Iran
Blastocystis hominis is the most common intestinal parasite found in humans and many other hosts. Pathogenicity of Blastocystis sp. remains controversial and it has been suggested that it may beExpand
Molecular epidemiology of human Blastocystis isolates in France
TLDR
This study determined the frequency of different Blastocystis subtypes in patients in France and hypothesized on the mode of transmission and tested a possible relationship between the subtype and symptomatic status. Expand
Subtype Distribution of Blastocystis Isolates in Sebha, Libya
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of Libyan Blastocystis isolates identified three different subtypes; with ST1 being the predominant subtype and its infection was significantly associated with female gender and low educational level. Expand
The distribution of Blastocystis subtypes in isolates from Qatar
TLDR
It is recommended that stool screening via microscopy for the presence of Blastocystis should be abandoned since it is extremely insensitive and in the years ahead diagnostic PCR will become the tool of choice. Expand
