Splenomegaly and reticulocytosis caused by Babesia microti infections in natural populations of the montane vole, Microtus montanus.
TLDR
A survey for Babesia microti in rodents was conducted at six sites within Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming andSplenomegaly and reticulocytosis were significant parameters associated with babesiosis while decreased hematocrit was not.
In Vitro And In Vivo Activity of 5-Fluorocytosine on Acanthamoeba
TLDR
The results of studies indicated that the avirulent Neff strain of Acanthamoeba was more susceptible to the activity of the anti-metabolite 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC) than was the virulent A-1 strain or a mouse brain reisolate of this strain, designated A-3, and that the clinical usefulness of 5-FC may be limited by the capacity of the amebas to develop resistance.
Presence of Thermophilic Naegleria Isolates in the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks
TLDR
A survey for Naegleria isolates was conducted in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park thermal areas where it was known that visitors and employees used these pools for unauthorized bathing and soaking.
Quantitative growth of Naegleria in axenic culture.
TLDR
A strain of Naegleria gruberi, isolated from a Vero cell culture and designated TS-1, was axenically cultivated in monolayer and mass aerating suspension culture and resulted in a final medium for suspension culture consisting of Casitone-yeast extract-glucose-vitamin base, supplemented with serum and RBC lysate.
The Influence of Growth Medium on Axenic Cultivation of Virulent and Avirulent Acanthamoeba 1
TLDR
The growth characteristics are described for two strains of pathogenic Acanthamoeba cultured in an axenic, peptone-based medium under aerated suspension conditions and a comparison was made to the nonpathogenic Neff strain cultured under similar conditions.
Isolation, Enumeration and Identification of Amebae from a Nebraska Lake*
TLDR
The most frequent ameba in the lake-bottom samples was Acanthamoeba polyhaga which underwent marked increases and decreases in population densities during the collection period, and this pattern was not correlated with water temperature, bacterial counts, and nitrate or phosphate levels.
Nutritional study of three strains of Naegleria gruberi.
SYNOPSIS Naegleria gruberi strains cloned from amebas isolated from a Vero cell culture (“TS”), a sewer drainage ditch (“PD”), and an established laboratory line (“S”) were morphologically
Redescription of flagellar arrangement in the duck intestinal flagellate, Cochlosoma anatis and description of a new species, Cochlosoma soricis n. sp. from shrews.
TLDR
Indentations in the mucosal brush border similar to those produced by Giardia, but distinctly belonging to Cochlosoma, were interpreted as points of attachment to the host.
Intestinal parasites of small mammals from Grand Teton National Park.
TLDR
All 90 montane voles examined were positive for Giardia, as were 4 pocket gophers, 1 water shrew, 4 water voles, and 2 meadow voles.
