Copy number differences in the 195 BP repeated satellite DNA from Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli : potential use for epidemiologic surveys
(Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz, 1993)
Trypanosoma cruzi, the agent of Chagas' disease, and the apparently non-pathogenic species Trypanosoma rangeli can be both encountered in human and in the same mammiferous hosts. On fresh isolates, the discrimination between ...
Population genetics of Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli : taxonomical and epidemiological purpose
(Biol Res, 1993)
A genetic analysis of a set of Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli stocks was performed by two combined approaches, namely mutilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) and labeling by DNA probes. A considerable genetic ...
¿Cuáles son los clones de Trypanosoma cruzi que circulan en Bolivia?
Direct identification of Trypanosoma cruzi natural clones in vectors and mammalian hosts by polymerase chain reaction amplification
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 1992)
Abstract. The polymerase chain reaction was used to amplify the highly variable region of the kinetoplast minicircle of Trypanosoma cruzi directly in biological samples (feces of infected Triatomine bugs, blood samples ...
Circulation and behaviour of two major clones of Trypanosoma cruzi in Bolivian cycles
(Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz, 1996-11)
On the basis of isoenzyme studies and population genetic interpretation (Tibayrenc et al. Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. USA, 83 : 115-119, 1986), we have previously designed a molecular identification tool of two major clones of ...
PCR-based diagnosis for Chagas' disease in Bolivian children living in an active transmission area : comparison with conventional serological and parasitological diagnosis
Abstract. A large field study has been performed in the Cochabamba region of Bolivia with the aim of comparing the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with other diagnostic methods for Chagas' disease. The amplification of ...
Field application of polymerase chain reaction diagnosis and strain typing of Trypanosoma cruzi in Bolivian triatomines
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 1995)
Abstract. A new approach for direct identification and characterization of Trypanosoma cruzi stocks in biological samples was tested for field applicability on an extensive sample of feces collected from triatomine vectors ...
