Molecular and morphological evidence of Taenia omissa in pumas (Puma concolor) in the Peruvian Highlands.
TLDR
A total of 41 cestodes were collected during necropsy examination on 2 pumas (Puma concolor) that were found in 2 communities in Canchis province, Cuzco region, Peru, at 4500 meters above sea level and were identified as Taenia omissa, the first report of this parasite in Peru. Expand
The taruca (Hippocamelus antisensis) and the red brocket deer (Mazama americana) as intermediate hosts of Taenia hydatigena in Peru, morphological and molecular evidence.
TLDR
This constitutes the first molecular detection of T. hydatigena metacestodes in the taruca and the red brocket deer and demonstrates that these animal species are natural intermediate hosts for this parasite. Expand
First finding of nymphal stages of Linguatula serrata in a South American camelid, a vicuña from Peru.
TLDR
This finding constitutes the first detection of L. serrata in a South American camelid. Expand
Changes in mucins and matrix metalloproteases in the endometrium of early pregnant alpacas (Vicugna pacos).
TLDR
Results suggest a crucial role of MUC1 and MUC16 and a possible roles of MMPs in successful embryo implantation and survival in alpacas. Expand
Modifications of extracellular matrix features in the left and right uterine horns during the embryo pre-implantation period in Vicugna pacos.
TLDR
The increased expression of ECM transcripts in the left uterine horn during early pregnancy in alpacas suggests the involvement of these molecules in a highly regulated process leading to the implantation process. Expand
