Özet

Cystic echinococcosis is one of the most important helminthozoonosis both in Turkey and all around world. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification of mitochondrial 12S rRNA (mt-12S rRNA) and small subunit ribosomal RNA (rrnS) genes were used for molecular characterization of 28 isolates of Echinococcus granulosus obtained from 19 sheep in Kilis province. And also partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mt-CO1) genes of randomly selected two sheep isolates were amplified and sequenced. At the end of the study, all sheep isolates were detected as E. granulosus sensu stricto (G1-G3 complex).
