* Following incubation with specific restriction enzyme the amplified Pvcs fragment is either digested (D) or remains uncut (U). Alu I and Bst NI digestion indicate whether the central polymorphic repeat region, which is amplified for the genotyping, is of the VK210 or VK247 type, while Scr FI and Bbs I digestion indicate the type of pre- and post-repeat pattern surrounding the VK210 repeat type allelic variants.
With respect to Pvmsp3α, the pattern of fragments obtained following restriction enzyme digestion provides a means to distinguish between different parasite genotypes. Different allelic variants are denoted with (i) and (ii).
= The amino acid residue encoded is provided, as is the average copy number. Different allelic variants are denoted with (i) and (ii).
