Family Paragonimidae: Hypothetical Bayesian analysis phylogeny based upon secondary structure alignment data of ITS2

8th International Conference 0n Bioinformatics, 7 – 11 September 2009, Biopolis, Singapore


Discussion phylogeny based upon secondary structure alignment data of ITS2

  • ITS sequences- high species-specific homogeneity.

  • Primary sequence analysis-

  • close relationship between query sequence (P. westermani from India) and isolates of related species from neighbouring countries.

  • Secondary structure analysis-

  • provided additional information for correct identification of the species.

  • confirmed the results from primary sequence analysis.

  • ITS sequence motifs phylogeny based upon secondary structure alignment data of ITS2

  • All the sequence motifs were available in all the Paragonimussequences of different geographical isolates under study.

  • Validation of motifs showed high percent identity and low E-value scores.

8th International Conference 0n Bioinformatics, 7 – 11 September 2009, Biopolis, Singapore


Conclusion phylogeny based upon secondary structure alignment data of ITS2

  • The Paragonimus species prevalent in the region is in fact Paragonimus westermani, the most common lung fluke throughout the globe.

  • ITS2 sequences:-

  • - reliable tool to identify species and phylogenetic relationships

  • - potential as species markers.

  • Different geographical isolates ofParagonimusspp need further study with additional molecular markers and barcoding to ascertain intra-specific strain variations, if any.
