Abstract

A multiplex PCR/DNA probe assay was used to monitor Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale infection in cattle introduced to a Boophilus microplus-infested area in Veracruz, Mexico. Eight intact, 18-month-old, cross-bred beef cattle (4 naive, Group A; 4 Babesia species - premunized,...

Abstract

The sensitivity and specificity of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was compared with the haematocrit centrifugation technique (HCT) and the mini-anion-exchange centrifugation technique (m-AECT) for the diagnosis of trypanosome infections in livestock. In a cross-sectional study, 486 cattle from ...

Abstract

Three different areas in Kenya (Limuru, in which many cattle have already been vaccinated against Theileria parva, and Kitale and Kakamega, where cattle have not so far been vaccinated) were included in the study. Genus- and species-specific primers were used to test for the presence of Theileria...

Abstract

A multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) procedure to amplify 18S ribosomal RNA gene fragments of Cryptosporidium. spp. was developed. Amplified DNA fragments of the expected size were obtained which were specific for C. parvum/C. wrairi (422 bp), C. baileyi (1106 bp) and C. muris (1346 bp). C....

Abstract

Molecular tools based on seminested restriction fragment length polymorphism polymerase chain reaction (RFLP-PCR) techniques were used to characterize field isolates of Theileria parva (collected between 1982 and 1997) in bloodspots dried on filter paper, to permit investigation of the extent and...
