Use of flow cytometry to separate Leucocytozoon caulleryi gametocytes from avian blood.


The highly pathogenic avian protozoan Leucocytozoon caulleryi infects host chicken cells, and interference by the host genome results in difficulty in obtaining protozoal DNA for genetic analysis. We used flow cytometry analysis to separate expelled L. caulleryi gametocytes from infected chicken blood and to analyse cell populations and sorting by FACS… (More)
