Molecular and Morphological Analysis of Myxobolus Spp. of Salmonid Fishes with the Description of a New Myxobolus Species
Abstract While investigating the parasite fauna of wild coho salmon. Oncorhynchus kisutch (Walbaum, 1792), histological examination provided evidence of a new species of Myxobolus (Myxozoa:Expand
INVOLVEMENT OF MANAYUNKIA SPECIOSA (ANNELIDA: POLYCHAETA: SABELLIDAE) IN THE LIFE CYCLE OF PARVICAPSULA MINIBICORNIS, A MYXOZOAN PARASITE OF PACIFIC SALMON
A coelomic myxozoan infection was detected in freshwater polychaetes, Manayunkia speciosa from the Klamath River, Oregon/California, a site enzootic for the myxozoan parasites Ceratomyxa shasta andExpand
Approaches for Characterising Myxozoan Species
TLDR
Application of new approaches to myxozoan classification is expected to facilitate reassessment of existing taxa, discovery of new taxa and further resolution of cryptic species. Expand
Evolutionary origin of Ceratonova shasta and phylogeny of the marine myxosporean lineage.
TLDR
The site of sporulation in the vertebrate host is a more accurate predictor of phylogenetic relationships than the morphology of the myxospore, which suggested that Ceratonova is closely related to the Enteromyxum and Kudoa clades, which represent a large group of histozoic species. Expand
Expanded geographical distribution of Myxobolus cerebralis: first detections from Alaska.
TLDR
DNA sequence data from the Alaska M. cerebralis isolates is presented, a brief history of the fish and facility of origin is provided, and implications of different testing methods on asymptomatic fish populations are discussed. Expand
Some remarks on the occurrence, host-specificity and validity of Myxobolus rotundus Nemeczek, 1911 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea)
TLDR
The SSU rRNA gene sequence of M. rotundus myxospores from bream corresponded to Triactinomyxon type 4 actinospores isolated from Tubifex tubifex (Müller) by Hallett et al. (2005), and it is inferred that these are alternate life stages. Expand
Myxozoan Life Cycles: Practical Approaches and Insights
TLDR
This chapter summarises the collective knowledge of myxozoan life cycles gained through experimental studies and observations, and summarizes attempts to propagate myxozoans in vitro. Expand
Alternate spore stages of Myxobilatus gasterostei, a myxosporean parasite of three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) and oligochaetes (Nais communis)
TLDR
The infected oligochaete underwent paratomic fission to produce two daughter worms with parasite stages in their intestinal epithelia, which suggested that M. gasterostei may be sustained and dispersed within the invertebrate host population. Expand
‘Who's who’ in renal sphaerosporids (Bivalvulida: Myxozoa) from common carp, Prussian carp and goldfish – molecular identification of cryptic species, blood stages and new members of Sphaerospora
TLDR
Non-selective myxozoan host invasion and multi-species infections, whose role in SBI still requires clarification, are reported. Expand
