Anaplasma organisms are observed in erythrocytes from goats with anemia and weight loss in Kenya. Three anaplasmas have been isolated in nature, Anaplasma ovis, Anaplasma marginale, and Anaplasma centrale. The two recognized species, A. ovis and A. marginale, are known to infect goats. Since only A. ovis causes clinical disease in goats, the Anaplasma species in goats in Kenya were identified. To detect A. ovis, a 9.6-kilobase-pair section of genomic DNA was cloned into pBR322 (pAO12A) and was… CONTINUE READING
