a Patterns of restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the PCR products of the small subunit rRNA gene in Cryptosporidium spp. in bamboo rats. Upper panel: SspI RFLP patterns; lower panel: VspI RFLP patterns. Lane M: 100 bp molecular markers; Lane O: C. occultus; Lanes P1-P3: C. parvum; Lanes N1-N3: C. ubiquitum-like genotype; Lanes M1-M3: C. parvum-like genotype. b Oocyst shedding intensity of Cryptosporidium species and genotypes in bamboo rats as indicated by oocysts per gram of feces (mean ± standard deviation)
