Anisakid Parasites of Fishes Caught on the African Shelf
The study shows that the parasitic fauna of fishes reflects not only the geographic range of anisakid nematodes but also the feeding behavior of the hosts serving as links in the parasites' life cycles.
Molecular identification of European flounder (Platichthys flesus) and its hybrids with European plaice (Pleuronectes platessa)
The set of molecular markers, two mitochondrial (cytochrome b and D-loop) and two nuclear (the ribosomal marker ITS and parathyroid hormone-related protein gene), was constructed to identify the two flatfish species and their hybrids.
Ascaridoidea: a simple DNA assay for identification of 11 species infecting marine and freshwater fish, mammals, and fish-eating birds.
It is proposed that the PCR-RFLP assay described in this report may be used for identification of marine and freshwater parasites from superfamily Ascaridoidea.
Selected mitochondrial genes as species markers of the Arctic Contracaecum osculatum complex
Among the C. osculatum species studied, the highest nucleotide diversity was recorded in the CYTB, CO3 and ND5 genes, which may be useful in species identification of the very closely related Contracaecum sibling species.
Report on anisakid nematodes in polar regions – Preliminary results
Abstract The aim of this study is to extend our knowledge of the distribution of anisakid nematode parasites in Arctic and Antarctic polar regions. We examined vertebrate (fish) taxa characteristic
Genetic differentiation of brackish water populations of cod Gadus morhua in the southern Baltic, inferred from genotyping using SNP-arrays.
This study demonstrates for the first time genetic differentiation by the use of a large number of SNPs between eastern and western Baltic populations existing in differentiated salinity conditions.
A PCR-RFLP assay for identification of Anisakis simplex from different geographical regions.
The results support the previously proposed hypothesis, based on the studies of isoenzymes, that there is a remarkable genetic homogeneity within A. simplex from different geographical regions.
Adaptation to salinity in Atlantic cod from different regions of the Baltic Sea
The high expression of atp1a that observed in the eastern group (GDA) supports the thesis of a genetic background to the adaptation to variable salinity, which may protect this species against an osmotic stress caused by daily vertical migrations and long-distance migration to spawning areas.
