Table 1 Prevalence of polymorphisms in kelch 13 and cytochrome b genes in the analyzed falciparum isolates. K13 protein consists of a Plasmodium-specific N-terminal region (Pf N-t region), coiled-coil-containing domain (CCC), a Broad-complex, Tramtrack, Bric-a-Brac/Poxvirus and Zincfinger domain (BTB/POZ) and a C-terminal Kelch-repeat propeller domain (KREP)

From: Targeted deep amplicon sequencing of kelch 13 and cytochrome b in Plasmodium falciparum isolates from an endemic African country using the Malaria Resistance Surveillance (MaRS) protocol
