During the attempt to seek T. congolense species-specific diagnostic antigens, we discovered one cDNA clone (P74) encoding 74 kDa putative abc1 protein (p74) from T. congolense PCF cDNA library. It has been suggested that members of the abc1 family are novel chaperonins and essential for both the mitochondrial electron transfer in the bc 1 complex and the(More)
The authors describe the first parasitological survey of protozoal infections on tissue slide sections of field cases processed at the histopathology laboratory of the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). Over 80% of the field cases were from Region 4 (CALABARZON) and the rest were equally distributed(More)
BACKGROUND The sole published data on feline heartworm infection in the Philippines was reported four decades ago. The study therefore endeavoured to assess and provide an update on the current status of heartworm infection in domesticated feline species using serologic and parasitological examination methods. METHODS A total of 46 males and 54 females(More)
Trypanosoma evansi is a protozoan parasite which ubiquitously infects livestock in the Philippines. The study depicts an initial report of livestock trypanosomes in cattle from the province of Quirino, Philippines using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method. Out of 246 fi eld blood samples from apparently healthy cattle collected from fi ve(More)
It is It is currently reported that bats in the Philippines harbor bacterial organism (currently reported that bats in the Philippines harbor bacterial organism (Salmonella Salmonella spp.) with spp.) with pathogenic potential. The paper describes the conventional isolation and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay pathogenic potential. The paper describes(More)
Trypanosoma evansi possesses a gene possesses a gene similar to putative similar to putative Trypanosoma Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense brucei rhodesiense oligosaccharyl transferase clone I oligosaccharyl transferase clone I. ABSTRACT Recent data has shown that there are strong indications that the putative oligosaccharyl transferase genes from Trypanosoma(More)
The partial nucleotide sequence of putative Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense oligosaccharyl transferase gene was previously reported. Here, we describe the determination of its full-length nucleotide sequence by Inverse PCR (IPCR), subsequent biological sequence analysis and transmembrane topology modelling. The full-length DNA sequence has an Open Reading(More)
