Cryptosporidium scrofarum n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Cryptosporidiidae) in domestic pigs (Sus scrofa).
We describe the morphological, biological, and molecular characteristics of Cryptosporidium pig genotype II and propose the species name Cryptosporidium scrofarum n. sp. to reflect its prevalence inExpand

Human Cryptosporidiosis Caused by Cryptosporidium tyzzeri and C. parvum Isolates Presumably Transmitted from Wild Mice
ABSTRACT We report a case of severe human cryptosporidiosis caused by Cryptosporidium tyzzeri and C. parvum with an unusually high frequency of liquid stools. Wild mice were the most likely source ofExpand

Cryptosporidiosis in Other Vertebrates
Cryptosporidium has adapted to a broad range of hosts in all major vertebrate classes, and the species associated with humans and livestock represent a small fraction of the diversity in the genus.Expand

Coevolution of Cryptosporidium tyzzeri and the house mouse (Mus musculus).
Two house mouse subspecies occur in Europe, eastern and northern Mus musculus musculus (Mmm) and western and southern Mus musculus domesticus (Mmd). A secondary hybrid zone occurs where their rangesExpand

Cryptosporidium galli and novel Cryptosporidium avian genotype VI in North American red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus)
Proventriculus and intestinal samples from 70 North American red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus; order Passeriformes) were examined for the presence of Cryptosporidium by PCR amplificationExpand

Cryptosporidium infecting wild cricetid rodents from the subfamilies Arvicolinae and Neotominae.
We undertook a study on Cryptosporidium spp. in wild cricetid rodents. Fecal samples were collected from meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus), southern red-backed voles (Myodes gapperi), woodlandExpand

Highly divergent 18S rRNA gene paralogs in a Cryptosporidium genotype from eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus).
Cryptosporidium is an apicomplexan parasite that causes the disease cryptosporidiosis in humans, livestock, and other vertebrates. Much of the knowledge on Cryptosporidium diversity is derived fromExpand
