Sequence variability in two mitochondrial DNA regions and internal transcribed spacer among three cestodes infecting animals and humans from China
Abstract Sequence variability in two mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) regions, namely cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 4 (nad4), and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of…
Seroprevalence of Chlamydia psittaci infection in market-sold adult chickens, ducks and pigeons in north-western China.
This is the first study indicating the presence of C. psittaci infection in market-sold chickens, ducks and pigeons in north-western China and public education should be implemented to reduce the risk of avian to human transmission of such a pathogenic agent.
First record of Chlamydia abortus seroprevalence in Tibetan sheep in Tibet, China
Chlamydia psittaci exposure in pet birds.
The results indicate that close contact with pet birds poses the risk of zoonotic transmission of Chlamydia psittaci.
Seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in domestic pigeons (Columba livia) in Guangdong Province of southern China.
Seroprevalence of Chlamydia infection in pigs in Jiangxi province, South-Eastern China.
The results indicate that Chlam Lydia is highly prevalent in pigs in Jiangxi province and the presence of Chlamydia exposure in pigs may pose a potential threat to human health.

The results indicated that TgCDPK6 could be a vaccine candidate antigen against T. gondii.
Factors associated with Staphylococcus aureus nasal carriage and molecular characteristics among the general population at a Medical College Campus in Guangzhou, South China
Colonization by S. aureus was greater among male and young age (20–30 years) students and those with irregularity nasal cleaning, indicating molecular heterogeneity among S.Aureus isolates from the populations in the medical college in Guangzhou.
Comparative characterization of microRNA profiles of different genotypes of Toxoplasma gondii
The majority of targets and most of the miRNAs are related to the virulence or invasion proteins of different strains of T. gondii, including ROP and MIC, as well as some other proteins, such as AMA1, GRA and RHO.
Sequence variation in the Toxoplasma gondii ROP20 gene among strains from different hosts and geographical locations.
Analysis of the sequence variation in rhoptry protein 20 (ROP20) genes showed that ROP20 variation could differentiate between the clonal lineage genotypes I and ToxoDB #9, indicating that Rop20 exhibits a relatively marked degree of sequence diversity and might represent a novel genetic marker for intraspecies phylogenetic analyses of T. gondii.
