The taxonomic classification within the genus Tritrichomonas is a subject of controversy, and, potentially, separation of the tritrichomonads from cattle and swine on the species level is not valid. To tackle this hypothesis we comparatively assessed several isolates of protozoan parasites from the three Tritrichomonas species T. foetus, T. suis, and T. mobilensis by the RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) technique. In this method with 20 different primers, all T. foetus and T. suis… CONTINUE READING
