Table 2 Isolates with potential inter-assemblage recombination within loci

From: Population-based analyses of Giardia duodenalis is consistent with the clonal assemblage structure

Source (Isolate ID) Locus Mixed Reference Nested-PCR Description
Cattle (K2521) GDH A/E DQ182604 [37] Yes 18SRDNA sequence of this rectal faecal sample was identified as Ass E. Other study samples contained Ass AI, AIII or Ass E.
Surface water (R24) GDH A/B EU350516 [38] Yes Environmental water sample,which contained very few cysts.
Human (D6) TPI B/E EU272164 [39] Yes Faecal sample derived from rural community in Egypt, where people commonly live in close contact with their livestock.
Cattle (K4016) GDH Is Ass AIII DQ182607 [37] Yes AIII is excluded as recombinant from AI and AII as they latter two could not be identified as parental strains.
Cat (Swecat171) GDH Is Ass AIII EU769223 [14] Yes  
  1. DNA sequences presented in this table were all generated by a (semi)-nested PCR for GDH [40] and TPI [41]. All these isolates were identified previously as potential recombinants [26].
