Figure 1

Alignment of TRAP-C2 nucleotide positions that show polymorphism among Cryptosporidium parvum isolates from human and nonhuman sources. Published calf sequence refers to Genbank accession number X77586. Other bovine (n=21) refers to 21 samples (from Georgia, Alabama, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Idaho, Utah, and Washington) that had the same genotype.
