In the present study, samples representing Orientobilharzia turkestanicum from cattle, sheep, cashmere goat and goat in Heilongjiang Province, China, were characterized and grouped genetically by sequences of internal transcribed spacer (ITS, including ITS-1 and ITS2) and 28S ribosomal DNA (28S rDNA). The ITS and 28S rDNA were amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and then sequenced and compared with that of other members of the Schistosomatidae available in GenBank, and phylogenetic… CONTINUE READING
