Z3 of discrete typing units (DTUs) TcIII or TcIV; 100 bp is characteristic of T.
It was reported that the strains from asymptomatic and symptomatic cases were different in terms of zymodeme
patterns (22, 23).
Trypanosoma cruzi isoenzyme variability in Ecuador: first observation of zymodeme
III genotypes in chagasic chronic patients.
The only strain isolated to date from skin lesions is Leishmania donovani MON-37, a zymodeme
differing by only one nucleotide substitution in the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase gene from L.
Three reference Leishmania strains were used in this study: Leishmania infantum (zymodeme
MON-1, strain MCAN/PT/ 98/IMT 244), Leishmania donovani (zymodeme
MON-2, strain MHOM/IN/1996/THAK35), and Leish mania major (zymodeme
LV39, strain MRHO/SU/59/P).
Schizodeme and zymodeme
analysis of trypanosomes of the subgenus Schizotrypanum from the bat.
Isolation of Leishmania infantum, Zymodeme
MON-1 from canine and human visceral leishmaniasis on Margarita island, Venezuela.
A group of amoebas sharing a particular isoenzyme pattern constitutes a "zymodeme
." Because only eight zymodemes
come from patients with amebiasis, many parasitologists say the isoenzyme test clearly separates invasive from benign strains.
Additional information from zymodeme
and genetic analysis indicated that these 2 lineages are different species (i.e., lineage PG is L.
major parasites (MHOM/TN/94/GLC94, zymodeme
MON25) were cultured on Novy-Nicolle-McNeal medium at 26[degrees]C and progressively adapted to RPMI 1640medium(Sigma, St.
Isolation and typing of Leishmania (Leishmania infantum) Nicolle, 1908 (zymodeme
MON 1) from Phlebotomus (Larroussius) tobbi Adler and Theodor 1930.
Biochemical characterization and zymodeme
classification of Leishmania isolates from patients, vectors, and reservoir hosts in Kenya.
