Use of a DNA probe to analyse the dynamics of infection with rodent malaria parasites confirms that parasite clearance during crisis is predominantly strain- and species-specific.

Abstract

A DNA probe, PCsv4.1, isolated from Plasmodium chabaudi chabaudi AS, generates in Southern blotting experiments restriction fragment length polymorphisms specific to a particular rodent malaria parasite line. It was used to develop an assay which allows identification and semi-quantitative compositional analysis of sample parasite populations in which one… (More)
