Genotyping of Mitochondrial Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Locus of Native American Indians
Using the polymerase chain reaction to amplify genomic DNA from hair roots, we have examined the mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH2) genotypes of 28 individuals from the South American Mapuche Indians. We have ...
Genotyping of Toxoplasma gondii strains isolated from dogs with neurological signs
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-01-04)
From 111 dogs with neurological signs admitted in this research in a 22-month period, brain samples of 34 animals were inoculated in mice in order to isolate Toxoplasma gondii. From these 34 dogs, 9 strains of T. gondii ...

Analysis of Toxoplasma gondii surface antigen 2 gene (SAG2). Relevance of genotype i in clinical toxoplasmosis
Toxoplasma gondii is one of the most successful protozoan parasites given its ability to manipulate the immune system and establish a chronic infection. It is a parasite with a significant impact on human health, mainly ...
Candida albicans: genotyping methods and clade related phenotypic characteristics
(Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia, 2010-12-01)
Several molecular methods, such as Southern blotting hybridization, Multilocus Sequence Typing, and DNA microsatellite analysis, have been employed to genotype Candida albicans. The genotype analysis allows to group strains ...
Genotyping of Brazilian Giardia duodenalis human axenic isolates
(Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), Centro de Estudos de Venenos e Animais Peçonhentos (CEVAP), 2011-01-01)
Giardia duodenalis is a complex species that comprises at least seven distinct genetic groups (A to G), but only genotypes A and B are known to infect humans and a wide variety of other mammals. Regardless of biological, ...
Relationships between cagA, vacA, and iceA genotypes of Helicobacter pylori and DNA damage in the gastric mucosa
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is believed to dispose carriers to gastric cancer by inducing chronic inflammation. The inflammatory processes may result in the generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species that damage ...
