 en Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis check for this species in other resources growth in vitro culture relies more on folic acid availability than Leihsmania (Leishmania) amazonensis check for this species in other resources
Andrea Niño & Marcela Camacho

Abstract

We compared the in vitro growth of promastigotes from two Leishmania species in TC-100 and Schneider media. Leihsmania (Leishmania) amazonensis check for this species in other resources replication rates were similar in both tissue culture media and reached maximum rates by 48 h. In contrast Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis check for this species in other resources growth was significantly greater in TC-100 but maximum rates were achieved by 96 h. Folic acid appears to be the limiting factor and supplementation of Schneider media with this nutrient improved L. (V.) braziliensis replication rates and decreased the time of maximum replication to 48 h.
