Abstract

Background: Parasites can either respond to differences in immune defenses that exist between individual hosts plastically or, alternatively, follow a genetically canalized ("hard wired") program of infection. Assuming that large-scale functional plasticity would be discernible in the parasite...

Abstract

The near complete mitochondrial genome for Cyclospora cayetanensis is 6184 bp in length with three protein-coding genes (Cox1, Cox3, CytB) and numerous lsrDNA and ssrDNA fragments. Gene arrangements were conserved with other coccidia in the Eimeriidae, but the C. cayetanensis mitochondrial genome...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of large subunit ribosomal RNA (LSU rRNA or 28S rRNA) gene sequences from free-living predatory flagellates Colpodella angusta, Voromonas pontica, and Alphamonas edax (Apicomplexa) confirms their close relationship with chromerids Chromera velia and Vitrella brassicaformis,...

Abstract

Coccidia possess three distinct genomes: nuclear, mitochondrial, and plastid. Sequences from five genes located on these three genomes were used to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships of members of the phylum Apicomplexa: 18S rDNA sequences from the nuclear (nu) genome, partial cytochrome c...

Abstract

Apicomplexa are an ancient group of single-celled pathogens of humans and animals that include the etiological agents of such devastating plagues as malaria, toxoplasmosis, and coccidiosis. The defining feature of the Apicomplexa is the apical complex, the invasion machinery used to gain access to...

Abstract

Before the discovery of Toxoplasma gondii as a coccidium of the cat in 1970, cat and dog coccidia were classified in the genus Isospora and considered of little clinical or zoonotic significance. Since 1970, several new (Hammondia sp., Neospora sp.) and previously described species, including ...

Abstract

Complete 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences were determined for 8 Eimeria species of chickens and for Eimeria bovis of cattle. Sequences were aligned with each other and with sequences from 2 Sarcocystis spp., Toxoplasma gondii, Neospora caninum and 4 Cryptosporidium spp. Aligned sequences were...

Abstract

Evolutionary relationships among the coccidia and haemosporidia are discussed with reference to features of the life-cycles and localization within the host.

Abstract

The optimum method of transmission for a blood parasite is brought about when it is withdrawn from the blood by an insect and is reintroduced by it into suitable blood. Leaving aside the cases where the insect plays but a mechanical rôle in much the same manner as a syringe needle, cases of...

Abstract

Coccidiosis in cattle has been found to be a by no means uncommon condition in many parts of the world, especially in tropical and sub-tropical countries, since it was first studied in 1892 by ZSCHOKKE and HESS in Switzerland, where it was known as rothe Ruhr. Until quite recently, however, the...
