Table 1 Genotype of three P. falciparum isolates described in this study, and by Tami et al. (2002).

From: Sympatric Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Venezuela have structured var gene repertoires

Isolate GLURP MSP1* MSP2 RRM type Relative frequency among 40 isolates**
#1 1000 bp K1 232 bp IC 535 bp Ia 62.5%
#2 1000 bp K1 232 bp IC 535 bp Ib 12.5%
#3 883 bp MAD20 155 bp IC 523 bp II 5%
  1. *K1 and MAD20 represent distinct allelic families of MSP1 sequences; IC represents a distinct allelic family of MSP2 sequences [20]. **Of the 41 isolates obtained in 1996, 40 were mono-clonal [12].
