Previously, only 1 human infection, also identified in the United Kingdom, was known (1), although routine typing based on RsaI restriction fragment-length polymorphisms (RFLPs) within the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) gene (2) does not differentiate the rabbit genotype from C.
All 3 isolates were characterized by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) or bidirectional sequencing (GeneService Ltd., Cambridge, UK) at the small subunit (SSU) rRNA ([approximately equal to] 800-bp product) (10), Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) ([approximately equal to] 550-bp product) (11) and heat shock protein (HSP) 70 ([approximately equal to] 450-bp or [approximately equal to] 325-bp products) (12) genes.
was determined by PCR-RFLP analysis of the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) and small subunit (SSU) rRNA genes using methods based on those described by Spano et al.
One tool was based on the dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) gene (10) and the other on the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) gene (11).
Smears in which Cryptosporidium oocysts were identified from January 1998 to February 2000 were also analyzed by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism typing of a region of the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein gene (19,20).
Strains were genotyped by using polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of a region of the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein gene (11).
In this study, for genotyping analysis, we investigated these outbreaks using a small subunit rRNA (SSU rRNA)-based polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) genotyping tool, as well as the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) PCR assay.
Genotyping was conducted by polymerase chain amplification of the internal transcribed spacer region, a hypervariable region in the 18S rRNA gene and the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein gene.
To obtain additional information on the nature of the species, a PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay (primer set cry9 and cry l 5) (6) that targets a fragment of a Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein gene was used (7).
We developed a sensitive nested polymerase chain reaction procedure for the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) gene.
These two genotypes were [ILLEGIBLE TEXT] differentiated by sequencing the SSU-rRNA coding region (16), sequencing the Cryptosporidium thrombospondin-related adhesion protein (TRAP-C2) gene (17 RFLP analysis of the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein (COWP) gene (15).
