In order to further investigate synapomorphic characters in the genus Sarcocystis, the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences of Sarcocystis capracanis and Sarcocystis moulei were determined and used to infer the phylogenetic position of these two organisms within the cyst-forming coccidia. Phylogenies derived using distance, maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood methods demonstrated that S. capracanis groups with Sarcocystis tenella and Sarcocystis arieticanis as a clade that shares the… CONTINUE READING
