TLDR
The development of a polymerase chain reaction coupled to SL3' hybridization has facilitated the detection of Phytomonas in plants, which can be identified by DNA hybridization with a specific probe complementary to a sequence of the mini-exon or spliced leader gene. Expand
An appraisal of the taxonomy and nomenclature of trypanosomatids presently classified as Leishmania and Endotrypanum
TLDR
A taxonomic revision of the dixenous trypanosomatids currently classified as Endotrypanum and Leishmania is proposed, including parasites that do not fall within the subgenera L. deanei, L. enriettii and L. martiniquensis. Expand
Genetic diversity of Trypanosoma cruzi in bats, and multilocus phylogenetic and phylogeographical analyses supporting Tcbat as an independent DTU (discrete typing unit).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in addition to value as molecular markers for DTU assignment, Cytb, ITS rDNA and the spliced leader (SL) polymorphic sequences suggest spatially structured populations of Tcbat, and Phylogenetic and phylogeographical analyses, multiple molecular markers specific to Tcbats strongly support the definitive classification of T cbat as a new DTU. Expand
Strains and clones of Trypanosoma cruzi can be characterized by pattern of restriction endonuclease products of kinetoplast DNA minicircles.
TLDR
It is shown that, from a given T. cruzi strain, clones with different biological properties can be isolated and identified by their restriction patterns. Expand
Ureotelism and ammonotelism in trypanosomatids
TLDR
According to their genera, trypanosomatids excrete urea, ammonia, or both, depending on growth media composition. Expand
Discrimination Amongst Leishmania by Polymerase Chain Reaction and Hybridization with Small Subunit Ribosomal DNA Derived Oligonucleotides
TLDR
The method detected as few as 10 cultured organisms and detected parasites in tissue samples from experimentally infected animals, and non‐radioactive labeling showed the same specificity and sensitivity as radioactive probes. Expand
Ribosomal DNA restriction analysis and synthetic oligonucleotide probing in the identification of genera of lower trypanosomatids.
TLDR
Results point to the usefulness of restriction markers as diagnostic tools for distinguishing the lower trypanosomatid genera Crithidia, Herpetomonas, and Phytomonas at the same time revealing a marked complexity within the genus Leptomonas. Expand
Trypanosoma livingstonei: a new species from African bats supports the bat seeding hypothesis for the Trypanosoma cruzi clade
BackgroundBat trypanosomes have been implicated in the evolutionary history of the T. cruzi clade, which comprises species from a wide geographic and host range in South America, Africa and Europe,Expand
Vectors of Plant Parasites of the Genus Phytomonas (Protozoa, Zoomastigophorea, Kinetoplastida)
TLDR
As described in this chapter, only in a few instances the vector role of phytophagous bugs has been experimentally evidenced. Expand
