Molecular markers for gyrodactylids (Gyrodactylidae: Monogenea) from five fish families (Teleostei).
TLDR
Results confirm the utility of both variable region V4 and the ITS as molecular markers for Gyrodactylus species and minor differences in the sequences between Western and Eastern European populations were detected. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Dactylogyridae Bychowsky, 1933 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridea): the need for the systematic revision of the Ancyrocephalinae Bychowsky, 1937
TLDR
Classification of the Dactylogyridae needs to be revised as the non-monophyly of the group of species recently considered as members of Ancyrocephalinae, previously suggested by Kritsky & Boeger (1989) using the morphological characters is indicated. Expand
Genetic characterization of six species of diplozoids (Monogenea; Diplozoidae)
TLDR
The second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) of the ribosomal RNA gene array of 6 species of diplozoids, E. nipponicum was the most genetically distinct species, whereas P. bliccae and P. sapae were the species most closely related. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the genus Gyrodactylus (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea) inferred from rDNA ITS region: subgenera versus species groups
TLDR
Characteristics of the excretory system of Gyrodactylus do not seem to be conservative enough to reveal subgenera within GyrodACTylus and it is suggested abandoning existing sub genera as indicators of phylogeny. Expand
Investigating patterns may reveal processes: evolutionary ecology of ectoparasitic monogeneans.
TLDR
The morphometric evolution of attachment and copulatory organs support the hypothesis of a reproductive segregation among conspecifics parasitising the same host(s) and strengthen the need to study the structure of communities in a phylogenetic context. Expand
Using quantitative real‐time PCR to detect salmonid prey in scats of grey Halichoerus grypus and harbour Phoca vitulina seals in Scotland – an experimental and field study
TLDR
Previous studies indicating that salmonids are not common prey for seals in these Scottish estuaries are confirmed, which support current manage ment practice, which focuses on control of the small number of seals that move into key salmonid areas. Expand
Detection of salmonid alphavirus RNA in wild marine fish: implications for the origins of salmon pancreas disease in aquaculture.
TLDR
A highly sensitive real-time PCR assay targeting a region of the SAV nsP1 gene was used to screen wild marine fish species for the presence of SAV in an attempt to identify a substantial reservoir of infection exists in the marine environment. Expand
Seasonal occurrence and metrical variability of Gyrodactylus rhodei Žitňan 1964 (Monogenea, Gyrodactylidae)
The seasonal dynamics of Gyrodactylus rhodei, a monogenean ectoparasite of bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus), was studied from June 2000 to May 2001 in the Kyjovka River, Czech Republic. A negativeExpand
Development of a sensitive and controlled real-time RT-PCR assay for viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) in marine salmonid aquaculture.
TLDR
A survey was undertaken to determine the potential distribution of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) in marine cage-based salmonid farms in Scotland, and a rapid, accurate and sensitive quantitative real-time RT-PCR assay was developed, shown to be more sensitive than the conventional VHSV RT- PCR. Expand
IDENTIFICATION OF EUROPEAN DIPLOZOIDS (MONOGENEA, DIPLOZOINAE) BY RESTRICTION DIGESTION OF THE RIBOSOMAL RNA INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER
TLDR
Sequence comparisons and ITS2 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) pattern of 8 European diplozoid species aimed to resolve their identification and amend the previous studies. Expand
