 en Whole-cell antigenicity data support sequence-based kinetoplastid taxonomy
Couvreur, Bernard

Abstract

Early immunological data, obtained by immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis, on the whole-cell antigenicity of kinetoplastid protozoa were retrieved and used to construct a dendrogram of antigenic distances. Remarkably, they supported the same taxonomic conclusions as analyses based on DNA and protein sequence data.
