Table 6 Distance matrix showing the nucleotide difference among ITS-2 gene sequences for microfilaria isolated from dogs from Delhi, Mumbai, Sikkim and Leh with reference sequences from GenBank for A. reconditum [GenBank: AF217801] and A. dracunculoides [GenBank: DQ018785].

From: A survey of canine filarial diseases of veterinary and public health significance in India

A. dracunculoides _DQ018785      
A. reconditum _AF217801 0.19     
Canine, Delhi isolate (A.r) 0.20 0.03    
Canine, Ladakh isolate 0.22 0.11 0.13   
Canine, Sikkim isolate (A.r) 0.19 0.00 0.03 0.11  
Canine, Mumbai isolate (A.r) 0.26 0.09 0.09 0.17 0.09
  1. Isolates from the study designated 'A.r' in parentheses are those that morphologically resembled A. reconditum.
