One reason for using trypanosomatidae species is that high level expression of protein-coding genes driven by RNA polymerase I is obtained by integration into the 18 s rRNA locus (17).
Estos resultados se corroboraron al observase el porcentaje de identidad obtenido al comparar las secuencias pre-editadas de este gen con las correspondientes en el resto de tripanosomatidos encontrandose valores de 82,4-90,5% (Tabla 3), evidenciandose la alta conservacion de esta secuencia en los diferentes generos de la familia Trypanosomatidae.
