Table 2 Distribution of msp2 allelic families of P. falciparum isolates from Melka-Werer, North East Ethiopia

From: Genetic polymorphisms of Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Melka-Werer, North East Ethiopia based on the merozoite surface protein-2 (msp-2) gene as a molecular marker

Allelic family n (%) Fragment size (bp) No. of alleles Mean MOI
msp2 41 (100)    1.2 (95% CI 1.00–1.40)
FC27 9 (22) 180–450 bp 8 1.04 (95% CI 0.96–1.11)
3D7/IC 14 (34) 280–500 bp 6 1.06 (95% CI 0.97–1.15)
FC27 + 3D7/IC 18 (44)    
Total 41   14
