Helminths in Rattus norvegicus captured in Chunchon, Korea.
Out of 43 examined rats, eggs of Capillaria hepatica were found in 11, Hymenolepis diminuta in 14 and Taenia taeniaeformis metacestodes in 28, which can be sources of zoonotic infections in the surveyed area. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of parasitic Platyhelminthes based on sequences of partial 28S rDNA D1 and mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I.
The phylogenic relationships existing among 14 parasitic Platyhelminthes in the Republic of Korea were investigated via the use of the partial 28S ribosomal DNA D1 region and the partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (mCOI) DNA sequences to indicate that the 28S rDNA gene sequence is more highly conserved than are the mCOI gene sequences.
