Piroplasms from Theileria genus were detected in blood and spleen of red deer Cervus elaphus culled during the months of September 2004–January 2005 in northwestern Poland. The polymerase chain reaction revealed the presence of Theileria deoxyribonucleic acid in 88% (36 of 41) of the animals examined. Molecular characterization of the parasites based on large piece of 18S ribosomal ribonucleic acid gene containing hypervariable region V4 showed 99.9% similarity to two Theileria spp. sequences… CONTINUE READING
