First record and molecular identification of Toxocara cati in a Pallas’ cat Otocolobus manul from Kyrgyzstan

general health status of wild population may be important in a conservation context. For example, while toxoplasmosis leads to high mortality rates of new-borns in captive populations, exposure to Toxoplasma gondii appears to be minimal in the wild ( Brown et al ., 2005 ). Here, we present the first record of a T. cati infestation observed in a Pallas’ cat sampled in Kyrgyzstan. The identity of the parasite was confirmed both based on morphology and genetic barcoding. Material and Methods Sampling On the 19 th of August 2013, a dead female cat was

Molecular and ultrastructure characterization of two nematodes (Thelandros scleratus and Physalopteroides dactyluris) based on ribosomal and mitochondrial DNA sequences

resolve the phylogenies of closely allied species in most animal phyla including nematodes ( Kumazawa & Nishida, 1993 ; Hebert etal .. 2003 ; Prosseret al., 2013) . Previous to this study, no molecular information from Physalop-teroides was available in GenBank. The present study analyzes for the first time the phylogenetic relationships the nematode species of Thelandros and Physalopteroides belonging to the same geographical area using the partial 18S and Cox 1 genes. Materials and Methods Brook's house gecko (N=15), Hemidactylus brooki infected

Characterisation of Trichodorus similis (Nematoda: Trichodoridae) associated with potato from the Czech Republic

., 2004b ). Further, identification by molecular methods supports the taxonomical determination based on the analysis of morphological characters. Likewise, morphological identification is also needed to support the molecular tests identification therefore the objective of this study was to characterise a T. similis population associated with potato using both morphological and molecular methods. Materials and Methods Morphological study Specimens from the Kaliště field population were extracted by sieving on 1 mm, 150 μm and 75 μm and placing the residual

Morphological and molecular characterization of Xiphinema species from Shenzhen, China

direct feeding on root cells and transmission of several plant-pathogenic viruses ( Taylor & Brown, 1997 ). It is of economic importance on grape, strawberry, hops, fruit trees and other crops. Nine species of Xiphinema have been shown to transmit nepoviruses ( Decraemer & Robbins, 2007 ). Some species in the X. americanum -group can serve as vectors of several important plant viruses including Tabacco ringspot virus , Tomato ringspot virus , Cherry rasp leaf virus and Peach rosette mosaic virus that damage a wide range of crops ( Taylor & Brown, 1997
