Relationships among members of the genus Myxobolus (Myxozoa: Bilvalvidae) based on small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is proposed that 18S rRNA gene sequences, combined with information on tissue tropism, host species infected, and developmental cycles in the fish and alternate host (when and if known) be given greater consideration in taxonomic placements of myxosporeans.
Pathological and histopathological studies of the swimbladder of eels Anguilla anguilla infected by Anguillicola crassus (Nematoda : Dracunculoidea)
TLDR
In cases of chronic swimbladder inflammation, oedema and hyperplasia of tissues of the tunica propria, submucosa and serosa could be observed, as well as granulomatoid infiltration by mononuclear cells and fibrinoid degeneration around the larvae.
Comparative morphological and molecular studies on Myxobolus spp. infecting chub from the river Danube, Hungary, and description of M. muellericus sp. n.
TLDR
Despite similarities of some species in spore morphology, 18S rDNA sequences showed clear differences between the species examined.
Morphology, Molecular Data, and Development of Zschokkella mugilis (Myxosporea, Bivalvulida) in a Polychaete Alternate Host, Nereis diversicolor
TLDR
The molecular data show that the actinospore has 100% similarity to the myxospore of Z. mugilis, and observations indicate that mature spores are released only during the polychaete reproductive season.
Swimming stimulates oocyte development in European eel
Dynamics of Anguillicola crassus (Nematoda: Dracunculoidea) infection in eels of Lake Balaton, Hungary.
TLDR
By 1993, a host-parasite equilibrium had become established in Lake Balaton and Helminth-free status accompanied by thickening of the swimbladder wall developed after intensive infections.
Parasitic infections of two invasive fish species, the Caucasian dwarf goby and the Amur sleeper, in Hungary.
TLDR
All parasites found in dwarf goby belong to species commonly occurring also in native Hungarian fishes, but three species collected from the Amur sleeper are introduced species new for the Hungarian fauna.
Some remarks on the occurrence, host-specificity and validity of Myxobolus rotundus Nemeczek, 1911 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea)
TLDR
The SSU rRNA gene sequence of M. rotundus myxospores from bream corresponded to Triactinomyxon type 4 actinospores isolated from Tubifex tubifex (Müller) by Hallett et al. (2005), and it is inferred that these are alternate life stages.
