  • Six Sarcocystis species, i.e. Sarcocystis grueneri, Sarcocystis rangi, Sarcocystis tarandivulpes, Sarcocystis hardangeri, Sarcocystis rangiferi and Sarcocystis tarandi have previously been described from reindeer based on sarcocyst morphology. In order to validate and expand the species descriptions, the complete small subunit (ssu) rRNA gene was sequenced and used to genetically characterise the six species. The aim was to reveal possible genetic variation in the ssu rRNA gene within each… CONTINUE READING
