Genetic restriction of Plasmodium falciparum in an area of stable transmission: an example of island evolution?

Abstract:

To date, a high degree of polymorphism has been demonstrated at both the MSP1 and MSP2 loci in parasites from areas of stable malaria transmission. As a consequence, in such areas it is rare to find parasites of the same 2-locus genotype in more than 1 subject. We have studied MSP1 and MSP2 diversity in parasites collected from subjects with both symptomatic (n = 86) and asymptomatic (34) malaria living on the island of Santo, Vanuatu, an area of stable malaria transmission. Polymorphism at t...
