Typing of rDNA and zymodeme according to Souto et al. (1996) and Miles et al. (1978), respectively; classification as lineages I and II were performed as described in Momen (1999).

  • a These two strains belong to isoenzyme type 43 according to Tibayrenc and Ayala (1988).

  • b These strains (rDNA 1/2) cannot be classified as belonging to lineage T. cruzi I or II.
