Multiple sequence alignment of
18SSU rRNA fragment performed by the muscle algorithm. The 18SSU rRNA partial sequences (second amplicon from Nested-PCR) obtained herein are from parasites of: Sapajus xanthosternos (sample 2324), Cebus sp. (2559 and 2503), dead wild Alouatta g. clamitans (MP1943). These sequences were compared to sequences from Plasmodium species available in GenBank [accession number]: P. vivax [GenBank: AY579418.1], Plasmodium cynomolgi [Genbank:JQ794445.1], Plasmodium knowlesi [GenBank: AY579417], P. falciparum [GenBank: JQ627150.1], P. malariae [GenBank: GU815531.1], P. brasilianum [GenBank: KC906730.1] and Plasmodium ovale [GenBank: KF018663.1].
