Agarose gel electrophoresis of amplicons for the Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine (CQ) resistance transporter gene digested with ApoI. Lane 1, DNA molecular mass standards (Stds) (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA); lanes 2 and 3, amplicons susceptible to cleavage by ApoI, showing 2 fragments of 100 and 34 bp, consistent with infection by only CQ-susceptible haplotype parasites; lanes 4 and 5, amplicons partially resistant to cleavage by ApoI, showing 3 fragments of 134, 100, and 34 bp, consistent
