Abstract

Using a novel method for cloning Giardia duodenalis from cultures and fecal samples, 47 clones from 7 isolates were established in vitro. Average colony-forming efficiency in established cultures was 43.2% compared to 11.2% when cloning directly from excystation. The highest success rate of cloning was found with the Portland (P1, ATCC No. 30888) isolate, with a colony-forming efficiency of 92.7%. Cloned and parent populations were compared over a range of 13 enzymes using starch gel electrophoresis. No genetic difference was found between any of the clones and the parent isolates.
