isolation and molecular identification of leishmania (viannia) peruviana from naturally infected lutzomyia peruensis (diptera: psychodidae) in the peruvian andes.leishmania (viannia) peruviana was isolated from 1/75 lutzomyia peruensis captured during may 2006 in an endemic cutaneous leishmaniasis region of the peruvian andes (chaute, huarochiri, lima, peru). sand fly gut with promastigotes was inoculated into a hamster and the remaining body was fixed in ethanol. l. (viannia) sp. was determined by polymerase chain reaction (pcr), and leishmania species through molecular genotyping by pcr-restriction fragment length polymorphism analyses targeting the ge ...200717710315
genetic diversity of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene in lutzomyia spp., with special reference to lutzomyia peruensis, a main vector of leishmania (viannia) peruviana in the peruvian andes.the genetic divergence caused by genetic drift and/or selection is suggested to affect the vectorial capacity and insecticide susceptibility of sand flies, as well as other arthropods. in the present study, cytochrome b (cyt b) gene sequences were determined in 13 species circulating in peru to establish a basis for analysis of the genetic structure, and the intraspecific genetic diversity was assessed in the lutzomyia (lu.) peruensis, a main vector species of leishmania (viannia) peruviana in p ...201323416127
