Table 5 Genetic differences between Cryptosporidium isolates tested.

From: Multi-locus analysis of human infective Cryptosporidium species and subtypes using ten novel genetic loci

  C. hominis C. parvum Anthroponotic C. parvum C. cuniculus C. meleagridis
C. hominis 0     
C. parvum 77 (1.72%) 0    
Anthroponotic C. parvum 78 (1.75%) 5 (0.12%) 0   
C. cuniculus 12 (0.27%) 75 (1.68%) 76 (1.70%) 0  
C. meleagridis 157 (5.50%) 144 (5.05%) 144 (5.05%) 155 (5.50%) 0
  1. Based on PCR product sequence analysis, the genetic differences (number and percentage of base pair polymorphisms) between the main strain groups was determined.
