Characterization of the ribosomal RNA gene of Kudoa neothunni (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida) in tunas (Thunnus spp.) and Kudoa scomberi n. sp. in a chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus)
Kudoa neothunni is the first described Kudoa species having six shell valves and polar capsules, previously assigned to the genus Hexacapsula Arai and Matsumoto, 1953. Since its genetic analysesExpand

New host records of monacanthid fish for three Kudoa spp. (K. septempunctata, K. thyrsites, and K. shiomitsui) prevalent in the olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus), with the description of K.
Kudoa septempunctata (Myxosporean: Multivalvulida) is known as a cause of foodborne disease associated with consumption of raw flesh of the olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus). Knowledge of itsExpand

Morphological and molecular genetic characterization of two Kudoa spp., K. musculoliquefaciens, and K. pleurogrammi n. sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida), causing myoliquefaction of commercial marine
Genetic characterization of myxosporean species, including members of the genus Kudoa, has advanced dramatically throughout the last decade. This is in stark contrast to those species describedExpand

Genetic characterization of Kudoa iwatai and Kudoa trachuri in commercial marine fish (Platycephalus sp. and Trachurus japonicus) for human consumption
The presence of kudoid cysts (Multivalvulida, Myxosporea, Myxozoa) in commercial marine fish for human consumption is detected by the naked eye only occasionally, despite the belief that kudoidExpand

Incidence of three Kudoa spp., K. neothunni, K. hexapunctata, and K. thunni (Myxosporea: Multivalvulida), in Thunnus tunas distributed in the western Pacific Ocean
A variety of tunas of the genus Thunnus are consumed daily in Japan as sliced raw fish (sashimi and sushi). The consumption of fresh sliced raw fish, i.e., unfrozen or uncooked, can sometimes causeExpand

Henneguya doneci (Myxosporea: Bivalvulida) in the gill filaments of Prussian carp Carassius gibelio (Bloch) from the upper Yellow River running through Inner Mongolia, China
We examined 11 Prussian carp, Carassius gibelio (Bloch), from the upper Yellow River running through Inner Mongolia (Wuhai City) to record myxosporean species. Between 6 and 15 elongated cysts ofExpand

Identification of four new Kudoa spp. (Myxozoa: Myxosporea: Multivalvulida) in commercial fishes collected from South China Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and Bering Sea by integrated taxonomic approach
Members of the myxosporean genus Kudoa are defined as having a myxospore with four or more shell valves (SVs) and a corresponding number of polar capsules (PCs). Here, we employed integratedExpand
