Figure 1

Banding pattern of the Cytb -PCR using artificially infected mosquitoes. (A) Image showing 729 bp Cytb-PCR amplified products of the DNA extracted from the mosquitoes artificially infected with P. vivax (lane 1) and P. falciparum (lane 2). (B) The same samples after PCR-RFLP showing a single 729 bp fragment specific for P. vivax (lane 3), and two 438 bp and 291 bp fragments specific for P. falciparum (lane 4). The products were run on 2% agarose gel with 100 bp ladder as molecular size marker (M).
