Abstract

Abstract

Seventeen Mexican stocks and five South American reference strains were analyzed by III restriction fragment length polymorphisms associated with ribosomal RNA gene spacers and by I digestion patterns of total DNA. Our findings demonstrate the occurrence of genetic heterogeneity within these stocks. Hierarchic and non-hierarchic clustering of these molecular characters allowed the formation of groups that correlate with the geographic origin of the stocks. The I digestion pattern permitted the identification of DNA fragments from the kinetoplast maxicircles, and therefore represents a simple and convenient method for conducting epidemiologic surveys in laboratories in developing countries.
