The subtype IIaA15G2R1 at the 60 kDa glycoprotein (gp60) gene locus is the most dominant Cryptosporidium parvum infecting dairy cattle and humans in industrialised nations. The reasons for its high transmissibility are not clear, and it remains to be determined whether this subtype represents a homogeneous parasite population. In this study, we sequence-characterised 26 IIaA15G2R subtype specimens and 26 non-IIaA15G2R subtype specimens from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Spain at… CONTINUE READING
