Abstract

We evaluated the potential value of a cloned sequence of genomic DNA of as a species-specific probe. Clone pBm 15 reacted with all stages of 8 different geographic isolates of and cross-hybridized with microfilariae of . It did not hybridize with or with or species, animal filariids that can be sympatric with . P-labeled clone pBm 15 correctly identified mosquitoes infected even with 1 infective larva of . This specific DNA probe should be an invaluable tool to monitor control programs of Brugian filariasis.
