|Abstract: ||Different molecular-genetic methods were used to identify a cohort of
Leishmania strains from natural foci of zoonotic cutaneous
leishmaniasis located in Central Asia, on the former USSR territory.
The results obtained using isoenzymes, PCR, restriction fragment length
polymorphisms of kDNA and molecular hybridization techniques are
discussed in terms of their applicability, discrimination power and
feasibility for answering questions related to molecular
epidemiological research and for detecting mixed Leishmania infections.|
