Table 2 Comparisons of LSCM4 DNA sequences with those from L. martiniquensis LSCM1 [6]. The lengths of the sequences given are the number of nucleotides, the analysis excludes PCR primers and comparisons were made using Clustal Omega

From: Leishmania (Mundinia) orientalis n. sp. (Trypanosomatidae), a parasite from Thailand responsible for localised cutaneous leishmaniasis
