Genomic localization of amastin genes in different T. cruzi strains. Chromosomal bands from different T. cruzi strains, separated by Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) and transferred to membranes, were hybridized with 32P-labelled probes corresponding to β2-amastin (A), δ-Ama40 (B), δ-amastin (C) and tuzin genes (D). T. cruzi strains or clones are SylvioX-10 (Sylvio), Colombiana (Col.), G and Dm28c, Y and CL Brener (CLBr). Sizes of yeast chromosomal bands (Sc) are indicated on the left.
