BIOGEOGRAPHY AND TAXONOMY OF BATRACHOSPERMUM HELMINTHOSUM (BATRACHOSPERMALES, RHODOPHYTA) IN JAPAN INFERRED FROM RBCL GENE SEQUENCES 1
TLDR
It is suggested that several taxonomic characteristics (sexuality, point of origin of carpogonium‐bearing branches, and trichogynes with or without basal knobs or branching) is not fixed genetically but is affected by environmental conditions. Expand
Kudoa septempunctata n. sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida) from an aquacultured olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) imported from Korea
A new myxosporean species, Kudoa septempunctata n. sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida), is described from the trunk muscles of an aquacultured olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) imported fromExpand
Hyper-variable regions in 18S rDNA of Strongyloides spp. as markers for species-specific diagnosis
TLDR
Four hyper-variable regions found in 18S ribosomal DNA sequences were compared among 34 isolates of 15 species of the genus Strongyloides to evaluate their diagnostic value and intraspecific polymorphism in HVR-IV nucleotide arrangement was observed, presumably reflecting process of geographical dispersal and adaptation to the hosts. Expand
Gastrointestinal helminths of feral raccoons (Procyon lotor) in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.
TLDR
Most of the collected parasites are food-borne, indigenous helminth species, including Physaloptera sp. Expand
Molecular identification of the causative agent of human strongyloidiasis acquired in Tanzania: dispersal and diversity of Strongyloides spp. and their hosts.
TLDR
The HVR-IV and cox1 of the patient's worms were identical to or only slightly differed from those of worms parasitic in Tanzanian chimpanzees and yellow baboons, demonstrating that the patient acquired the infection during her field survey in Tanzania. Expand
Characterization of the ribosomal RNA gene of Kudoa neothunni (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida) in tunas (Thunnus spp.) and Kudoa scomberi n. sp. in a chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus)
TLDR
The ribosomal RNA gene (rDNA) is characterized using two isolates from a yellowfin tuna with post-harvest myoliquefaction and a northern bluefin tuna without tissue degradation and shows typical morphology of K. neothunni with six equal-sized shell valves radially arranged in apical view. Expand
A NEW RHABDITOID NEMATODE SPECIES IN ASIAN SCIURIDS, DISTINCT FROM STRONGYLOIDES ROBUSTUS IN NORTH AMERICAN SCIURIDS
TLDR
The SSU/LSU rDNA sequences supported the division of sciurid Strongyloides isolates by geographical distribution of the host and morphological features, leading us to propose the erection of new species. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeography of the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Northern Japan
TLDR
The results suggest that the Hokkaido population, which is sometimes referred to as the distinct sub species V. v. schrencki, has its own genetic background with multiple migration events and differs from the parapatric subspecies V. japonica found in Honshu and Kyushu. Expand
Helminths Collected From Imported Pet Murids, with Special Reference to Concomitant Infection of the Golden Hamsters with Three Pinworm Species of the Genus Syphacia (Nematoda: Oxyuridae)
TLDR
It is suggested that overlapping breeding situations provided the opportunity for host switching by the pinworms, and all of the host–Syphacia associations, except S. mesocriceti in the golden hamsters, were recorded for the first time. Expand
LARVA MIGRANS BY BAYLISASCARIS TRANSFUGA: FATAL NEUROLOGICAL DISEASES IN MONGOLIAN JIRDS, BUT NOT IN MICE
TLDR
Critical differences in host reactions against larvae localized in the brain of mice and jirds were found; B. transfuga larvae found in mice were surrounded by granulomatous reactions and immobilized, whereas larvae in j birds were free from any host reaction and mobile, causing extensive malacia.
