Molecular Analysis of Plasmodium ovale Variants
Figure 1. Different nucleotide sequences of the SSUrRNA genes among various Plasmodium ovale isolates. Numbers of nucleotides are based on the P. ovale clone 9 sequence. Boldface letters show different nucleotides in each isolate. Poc 1–2 and Pov 1–3 indicate two and three different sequences obtained from the classic and variant P. ovale isolates, respectively. Nigeria, Nigerian I/CDC strain; PNG, Papua New Guinean isolate; LS, a strain from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
