Table 1 Genetic diversity for Pvmsp1F3, Pvmsp3α and Pvcsp in the P. vivax isolates

From: Genetic diversity among Plasmodium vivax isolates along the Thai–Myanmar border of Thailand

  Pvmsp1F3 Pvmsp3α Pvcsp
No. of alleles 7 3 9
No. of clones 269 209 292
No. of PCR positive isolates (%) 254 (100) 209 (82) 254 (100)
MOIa 1.06 1.00 1.15
H a E 0.709 0.631 0.846
  1. aThe multiplicity of infection (MOI) was calculated by dividing the total number of P. vivax clones by the number of PCR-positive isolates; H E , the expected virtual heterozygosity (the chance of drawing a pair of alleles differs from each other) using the following formula: H E  = [n/(n − 1)] × (1 − ∑p 2i ), where pi is the frequency of the ith allele and n is the number of isolates analysed
