Abstract

A panel of 81 Asian, African and European cattle (Bos taurus and B. indicus) was analysed for the whole sequence of the CXCR4 gene (3844 bp), a strong candidate for cattle trypanotolerance. Thirty-one polymorphic sites identified gave 31 different haplotypes. Neutrality tests rejected the...

Cover for Indigenous livestock resources in a changing climate: Indian perspective.

Biological diversity, the variability of life on earth, exists in the form of different species and breeds within the animal kingdom. This diversity is created in the process of molecular/biochemical/metabolic reactions, and acts as a critical measure of adaptation in changing climatic conditions....

Abstract

In South American countries, trypanosomiasis as a result of Trypanosoma evansi and Trypanosoma vivax infections causes significant economic losses in livestock. The objectives of this study were to characterize the epidemiology of bovine trypanosomiasis in South America and to draw a comparison...

Abstract

Studies on genetic variability in Trypanosoma evansi have been limited by a lack of high-resolution techniques. In this study, we have investigated the use of inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR) and microsatellites in revealing polymorphism among T. evansi isolates. Twelve ISSR primers and five...

Abstract

Trypanosomosis is a major constraint on ruminant livestock production in Africa, Asia, and South America. The principal host species affected varies geographically, but buffalo, cattle, camels, and horses are particularly sensitive. Natural infections with Trypanosoma congolense, T. vivax, T....

Abstract

Two hundred randomly selected cattle and buffaloes from a dairy farm and villages in Calcutta, West Bengal, India, were examined for Trypanosoma evansi infections. Giemsa stained blood films were negative for T. evansi. Mice were injected with 0.8 ml of heparinized blood from each of the animals...

Abstract

A parasitological survey was carried out to determine the prevalence rates of trypanosomiasis in cattle and buffaloes in South Kalimantan, Indonesia, for a period of one and a half years. Random samples were collected from 1231 cattle and 151 buffaloes in 7 districts. Whole blood was examined for...

Abstract

The occurrence of Trypanosoma evansi in domestic animals in China is reviewed with respect to species affected (horses, mules, deer, buffaloes, cattle, pigs, camels), the vectors (mainly Tabanus, but also Stomoxys, Atylotus and Lyperosia [Hydrotaea]), regional and seasonal fluctuations, and...

Abstract

Specimens of lumbar and oblique abdominal muscles from cattle slaughtered in different parts of Guizhou, China, were examined for sarcocysts. The morphology of the sarcocysts and their bradyzoites was examined. S. cruzi infection was quite common among the Guizhou cattle, and S. hirsuta was also...
