  1. * Letters in parentheses indicate the Brazilian state where the strain was isolated (BA, Bahia; MG, Minas Gerais; PA, Pará; RS, Rio Grande do Sul; SC, Santa Catarina). ** DTU-I to DTU-VI are the different T. cruzi DTUs (Discrete Typing Units) described by Zingales et al. [35, 36], and KP1+/KP1- are the T. rangeli genetic groups described by Vallejo et al.[21]. NA –Not Applicable.
