Theileria parva: genomic DNA studies reveal intra-specific sequence diversity.


Theileria parva parva piroplasm DNA was purified from 11 different infections of cattle with 6 different East African isolates of the parasite. Total DNA was also prepared from bovine lymphoblastoid cells infected with schizonts of one of the isolates. Two of the infections were with cloned parasites. The DNA was of high molecular weight and free from… (More)
