Innovative restriction site created PCR-RFLP for detection of benzimidazole resistance in Teladorsagia circumcincta


Benzimidazole compounds, especially albendazole, are the most commonly used anthelmintics for deworming of small ruminants in Iran. It is believed that the therapeutic effects of the benzimidazoles (BZs) come through their binding capacity to the β-tubulin isotype 1.
