Profiles of COII-RFLP from Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli in triatomine intestinal tracts. Silver-stained 6% polyacrylamide gel reveals the electrophoretic profiles of the COII-RFLP assay for detection and typing of T. rangeli (KP1+ and KP1- strains) and T. cruzi (DTU-I and DTU-II strains) in the intestinal tract of Rhodnius prolixus experimentally infected with single or mixed strains and genetic groups. MW = 100 bp DNA Ladder (Invitrogen, USA). NC = Negative control (No DNA added).
