Representative block diagram of merozoite surface protein 1 [40]. a The block diagram for msp1 gene is based on conserved amino acid sequences in Plasmodium vivax, P. falciparum and Plasmodium yoelii (inner block). The outer solid and dotted hollow blocks represents conserved and semi-conserved regions based on P. falciparum sequence. The solid block represents ICB with more than 48% identical sequences among three species. The hatched block represents more than 50% identical (conserved) sequences between P. falciparum and P. vivax. Open regions represents less than 45% identity among three species. ICB, interspecies conserved block; CB, Conserved block. b Schematic representation of the primary (NF1, NR1) and secondary (NF2, NR2) oligonucleotide primers used to sequence partial region of the pmmsp1 gene
