Molecular characterization of subcutaneous and muscular coenurosis of goats in United Arab Emirates.
Coenurosis is a parasitic disease caused by the larval stage of Taenia multiceps, which affects various ruminants species, particularly sheep and goats, and occasionally humans. In this note,Expand
Complete mitochondrial genomes of Taenia multiceps, T. hydatigena and T. pisiformis: additional molecular markers for a tapeworm genus of human and animal health significance
It is shown that analysis of amino acids provides a robust estimate of phylogeny for the genus that differs markedly from morphological estimates or those using partial genes; with implications for understanding the evolutionary radiation of important Taenia. Expand
The Mitochondrial Genome of Paramphistomum cervi (Digenea), the First Representative for the Family Paramphistomidae
Bayesian phylogenetic analyses, based on concatenated nucleotide sequences and amino-acid sequences of the 12 protein-coding genes, placed P. cervi within the Order Plagiorchiida, but relationships were not quite as expected from previous studies. Expand
Molecular identification of Diphyllobothrium latum and a brief review of diphyllobothriosis in China
This study represents the first molecular characterization of D. latum in China, providing molecular evidence of human diphyllobothriosis in China. Expand
Mitochondrial genes and genomes support a cryptic species of tapeworm within Taenia taeniaeformis.
A phylogenetic analysis based on the 12 protein-coding genes of all available taeniid mtDNAs confirmed the two T. taeniaeformis isolates as sister taxa (likely separate species) and early divergent members of the genus, as suggested previously by morphology. Expand
Genetic characterization of Toxoplasma gondii from Qinghai vole, Plateau pika and Tibetan ground-tit on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China
The results show that there is a potential risk for the transmission of this parasite through the wildlife in this region and the first report of genetic typing of T. gondii isolates in wildlife on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, China. Expand
A Comparison of Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) with Other Surveillance Tools for Echinococcus granulosus Diagnosis in Canine Definitive Hosts
The developed LAMP assay may lead to a more cost-effective and practicable way of tracking Echinococcus infections in canids, especially when combined with the copro-ELISA. Expand
Discrimination between E. granulosus sensu stricto, E. multilocularis and E. shiquicus Using a Multiplex PCR Assay
The multiplex PCR developed in this study is an efficient tool for discriminating E. granulosus, E. multilocularis and E. shiquicus from each other and from other taeniid cestodes and can also be used for the identification of the Echinococcus metacestode larva in intermediate hosts. Expand
Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) assay for the identification of Echinococcus multilocularis infections in canine definitive hosts
The earlier specific detection of an E. multilocularis infection in dog copro-samples indicates that the LAMP assay developed is a realistic alternative method for the field surveillance of canines in echinococcosis-endemic areas. Expand

Phylogenetic analysis based on complete cox1 gene sequences revealed that T. multiceps isolates were composed of 3 genotypes and distinguished from the other Taenia species. Expand
