Urogenital schistosomiasis caused by Schistosoma haematobium is widely distributed across Africa and is increasingly being targeted for control. Genome sequences and population genetic parameters can give insight into the potential for population- or species-level drug resistance. Microsatellite DNA loci are genetic markers in wide use by Schistosoma(More)
Mice of the genus Peromyscus, including several endangered subspecies, occur throughout North America and have been important models for conservation research. We describe 526 primer pairs that amplify microsatellite DNA loci for Peromyscus maniculatus bairdii, 467 of which also amplify in Peromyscus polionotus subgriseus. For 12 of these loci, we report(More)
We isolated and characterized 18 microsatellite loci for the Southern Leopard Frog, Rana sphenocephala. Loci were screened in 30 individuals of R. sphenocephala. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 5 to 21, observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.200 to 0.933, and the probability of identity values ranged from 0.008 to 0.299. These new loci are tools(More)
We isolated and characterized 12 microsatellite loci for the Dwarf Salamander, Eurycea quadridigitata. Loci were screened in 30 individuals of E. quadridigitata. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 9, observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.2 to 0.9, and the probability of identity values ranged from 0.034 to 0.689. These new loci can be used to(More)
Population genetic diversity is widely accepted as important to the conservation and management of wildlife. However, habitat features may differentially affect evolutionary processes that facilitate population genetic diversity among sympatric species. We measured genetic diversity for two pond-breeding amphibian species (Dwarf salamanders, Eurycea(More)
Incorporation of glycopeptide, glycolipid and peptidoglycolipid preparations from the culture fluid or organisms of a variety of mycobacterial species in suboptimally stimulated cultures of normal mouse bone marrow cells increased the responsiveness of colony-forming cells to colony-stimulating factor, as measured by enhanced colony formation.
