Abstract

Neospora caninum is an apicomplexan protozoan parasite that is a leading cause of abortion in cattle. Detection of parasite-specific DNA by PCR is a highly sensitive method for identifying the presence of N. caninum in a variety of tissues. We developed and validated a probe-based real-time PCR...

Abstract

Background: Babesia bigemina is an apicomplexan parasite transovarially transmitted via Rhipicephalus ticks that infect red blood cells and causes bovine babesiosis, a poorly controlled severe acute disease in cattle. New methods of control are urgently needed, including the development of...

Abstract

Herein we describe, to our knowledge for the first time the use of the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/CRISPR-associated gene 9 (CRISPR/Cas9) system for genome editing of Neospora caninum, an apicomplexan parasite considered one of the main causes of abortion in cattle...

Abstract

Neospora caninum is one of the main agents that causes abortions in cattle worldwide. However, little is known about the pathogenesis of neosporosis in small ruminants, especially goats. Gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus) have been used as a model for neosporosis, and this species is highly...

Abstract

Macrophages are multipurpose phagocytes and are considered to be irreplaceable during the early host innate immune response against microbial and parasitic pathogens. However, no report has investigated the novel anti-parasitic mechanism of macrophage-derived extracellular traps (ETs) against the...
