  • Korean J Parasitol.
  • 1999 Dec;37(4):257-263.
  • doi: 10.3347/kjp.1999.37.4.257
Identification of the genes responsible for the recovery of virulence in brain-passaged Acanthamoeba culbertsoni was attempted via mRNA differential display-polymerase chain reaction (mRNA DD-PCR) analysis. In order to identify...
