Identification of strains of L. aethiopica based on microsatellite typing. PCR analysis of genomic DNA extracted from various isolates of L. aethiopica using various markers designed from microsatellite regions identified in this study. PCR products were electrophoresed on a 4% Metaphor agarose gel and analyzed for fragment length variation. E, B, D, G and M represent different isolates of L aethiopica used in this study. A) Marker 1, B) Marker 4, C) Marker 6, D) Marker 22 E) Marker 27. L is 1 kb ladder.
