The Erythrocyte Binding Antigen-175 (EBA-175) on Plasmodium falciparum (P.falciparum) merozoites mediates sialic acid dependent binding to glycophorin a on host erythrocytes and, therefore, plays a crucial role in cell invasion. Dimorphic allele segments have been found in its encoding gene with in FCR-3 strains (F-segment) and CAMP strains (C-segment). This study was designed to determine the distribution of EBA-175 alleles of P.falciparum in the South-East of Iran. Nested Polymerase Chain Reaction method used with specific primers, which improves the two fragments of the EBA-175 gene. Ninety-four microscopically positive blood samples were collected from the infected P.falciparum malaria patients from four different districts. The 88 out of 94 confirmed P.falciparum samples were successfully scored for EBA-175. The allelic genotyping exhibited CAMP strains (714 bp) and FCR-3 strains (795 bp) in 31(32.97%) and 49(52.12%) cases, respectively and 8 cases (8.51%) showed mixed allelic CAMP/FCR-3 infections. The two fragments of dimorphic EBA-175 gene were observed and the FCR-3 allele was more prevalent in South-East of Iran. This distributional pattern should be considered in designing to control P. falciparum malaria in the region.
