Table 4 Estimated gene copy numbers in eight P. falciparum field-isolates from the DRSTP

From: Real-time quantitative PCR with SYBR Green I detection for estimating copy numbers of nine drug resistance candidate genes in Plasmodium falciparum

Parasite Copy number relative to P. falciparum 3D7
  Pfmdr1 Pfatp6 pftctp pfgpx pfgr pfgst Pfsod1 Pftrx1 Pftrx2
Dd2 3.7 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
S. Tomé strains 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
  1. Legend: Eight strains from the islands of São Tomé and Princípe were tested (coded ST060, ST073, ST045, ST013, ST065, ST058 and ST035). For simplification, results are expressed in a single row, since all parasites harboured one copy of the studied genes.
