Description of Babesia duncani n.sp. (Apicomplexa: Babesiidae) from humans and its differentiation from other piroplasms.
The morphologic, ultrastructural and genotypic characteristics of Babesia duncani n.sp. are described based on the characterization of two isolates (WA1, CA5) obtained from infected human patients inExpand

Cryptosporidium is more closely related to the gregarines than to coccidia as shown by phylogenetic analysis of apicomplexan parasites inferred using small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences
Abstract The phylogenetic placement of gregarine parasites (Apicomplexa: Gregarinasina) within the Apicomplexa was derived by comparison of small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences. GregarineExpand

Molecular phylogeny of clade III nematodes reveals multiple origins of tissue parasitism.
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of 113 taxa representing Ascaridida, Rhigonematida, Spirurida and Oxyurida were used to infer a more comprehensive phylogenetic hypothesis for representatives ofExpand

The Genus Atoxoplasma (Garnham 1950) as a Junior Objective Synonym of the Genus Isospora (Schneider 1881) Species Infecting Birds and Resurrection of Cystoisospora (Frenkel 1977) as the Correct Genus
Molecular and morphological data permit a rational subdivision of the paraphyletic Isospora into 2 apparently monophyletic groups of parasites, i.e., Isospora and Cystoisospora. Atoxoplasma wasExpand

Babesia conradae, sp. Nov., a small canine Babesia identified in California.
Small piroplasms as a cause of canine babesiosis have usually been identified as Babesia gibsoni. Recent genetic studies suggested that small piroplasms are more likely comprised of at least threeExpand

An Eimeriid origin of isosporoid coccidia with Stieda bodies as shown by phylogenetic analysis of small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.
Morphological and life cycle features of the tissue cyst-forming coccidia have been difficult to interpret in devising taxonomic classifications for the various genera. In this study, we amplifiedExpand

Molecular phylogenetics and diagnosis of soil and clinical isolates of Halicephalobus gingivalis (Nematoda: Cephalobina: Panagrolaimoidea), an opportunistic pathogen of horses.
Phylogenetic relationships among six isolates of Halicephalobus gingivalis (Stefanski, 1954), a species with pathogenic potential in horses and humans, were evaluated using DNA sequences from theExpand

Phylogenetic Analysis of Coccidia Based on 18S rDNA Sequence Comparison Indicates that Isospora Is Most Closely Related to Toxoplasma and Neospora
The phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic affinities of coccidia with isosporan‐type oocysts have been unclear as overlapping characters, recently discovered life cycle features, and even recentlyExpand

Phylogenetic identification of Cystoisospora spp. from dogs, cats, and raccoon dogs in Japan.
Cystoisospora spp. from feces in dogs, cats, and raccoon dogs were isolated, sequenced at the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene locus and compared to other Cystoisospora spp. Cystoisospora oocystsExpand
