FIGUEIRA, Luanda de Paula; ZANOTTI, Michele; PINHEIRO, Francimeire Gomes  and  FRANCO, Antonia Maria Ramos. Isoenzymatic characterization of human isolates of Leishmania sp (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) from the municipalities of Rio Preto da Eva and Manaus, State of Amazonas. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.5, pp.512-514. ISSN 0037-8682.

Twenty-three isolates of Leishmania sp from patients in the municipalities of Rio Preto da Eva and Manaus were characterized and identified by means of isoenzyme electrophoresis and the degree of similarity between the organisms was analyzed. The results indicated that Leishmania guyanensis and Leishmania naiffi were present in these two environments and that the Leishmania naiffi samples were heterogenous.

Keywords : Leishmania; Isoenzymes; Characterization; Amazonas.
