The molecular characteristics of circumsporozoite protein gene subtypes from Plasmodium vivax isolates in Republic of Korea


The circumsporozoite protein (CSP) of Plasmodium vivax has two sequence types, VK210 and VK247, each of which has a characteristic tandem amino acid repetition. Previous studies report that a resurgent Korean strain has unique amino acid sequences in tandem repeats and post-repeat areas compared to other strains of P. vivax. We have found another molecular… (More)
