The purpose of this study was to genotypically characterize and phylogenetically analyze the 18S rDNA sequences of Cryptosporidium obtained from poultry in Brazil. Fecal samples were obtained from ducks, chicks and quails sold in popular markets. DNA was isolated from Cryptosporidium positive feces, and 18S subunit rDNA was amplified and processed using nested-polymerase chain reaction (PCR). To identify the protozoan species, the PCR amplicons were used for restriction fragment length… CONTINUE READING
