Table 2 Pfhrp2 exon 2 length and repeat polymorphism data by country

From: Sequence variation does not confound the measurement of plasma PfHRP2 concentration in African children presenting with severe malaria

Population Mozambique Tanzania (Teule) Combined P value
Total number 34 32 66  
Length: median (range) 741 (627–816) 759 (651–876) 751.5 (627–876) 0.12
Haplotypes 34 32 66  
Repeats     
Type 2 12 (10–17) 12 (8–16) 12 (8–17) 0.70
Type 7 7 (3–10) 8 (2–11) 7 (2–11) 0.22
  1. The types and numbers of repeats for each sequence were examined using the repeat structure described by Baker et al.[21].
