Evolution of ruminant Sarcocystis (Sporozoa) parasites based on small subunit rDNA sequences.
We present an evolutionary analysis of 13 species of Sarcocystis, including 4 newly sequenced species with ruminants as their intermediate host, based on complete small subunit rDNA sequences. ThoseExpand

Characterization of a Swedish bovine isolate of Neospora caninum
Abstract  The brain of a stillborn calf, seropositive to Neospora caninum and born to a seropositive cow, was homogenized and cultured on Vero cells, where growth of Neospora-like tachyzoites wasExpand

Molecular phylogeny of Besnoitia and the genetic relationships among Besnoitia of cattle, wildebeest and goats.
Knowledge on parasites of the genus Besnoitia is sparse, which are classified in the subfamily Toxoplasmatinae of the phylum Apicomplexa. This arrangement hypotheses that Besnoitia represents theExpand

Neospora species infection in a herd of dairy cattle.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the route of transmission of Neospora sp in a herd of dairy cattle in which sporadic abortions had been observed since the establishment of the farm in 1980. DESIGN SerumExpand

An indirect enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) for demonstration of antibodies to Neospora caninum in serum and milk of cattle.
An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detection of antibodies to Neospora caninum in serum from cattle is described. Extracted tachyzoite proteins incorporated intoExpand

Rapid and sensitive identification of Neospora caninum by in vitro amplification of the internal transcribed spacer 1.
Neospora caninum and N. caninum-like organisms are cyst-forming coccidian parasites known to cause neuromuscular disorders in dogs and abortion in cattle. In this article we report on the use of theExpand

Oral Neospora caninum inoculation of neonatal calves.
Four calves born to cows seronegative for Neospora caninum were dosed orally within 6 h after birth with tachyzoites of the bovine N. caninum Nc-SweB1 isolate added to colostrum. Two of the calvesExpand

Characterization of the first European isolate of Neospora caninum (Dubey, Carpenter, Speer, Topper and Uggla).
Neospora caninum is an apicomplexan, protozoan parasite, which causes severe disease in dogs and cattle. It has previously been isolated only in the United States. A 5-week-old Boxer pup with aExpand

Discrimination of Neospora caninum from Toxoplasma gondii and other apicomplexan parasites by hybridization and PCR.
Neospora caninum is a protozoan parasite which causes neurological problems in dogs and abortion in cattle. As N. caninum is difficult to distinguish morphologically from Toxoplasma gondii, weExpand

The phylogeny of Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii based on ribosomal RNA sequences.
Neospora caninum is a newly described cyst-forming coccidium which is the cause of severe neurological disease in dogs. The parasite is morphologically similar to Toxoplasma gondii, but the twoExpand
