  • Fresh muscle tissue from six roe deer from Southeastern Norway was examined for sarcocysts. Cysts were excised and morphologically classified by light microscopy, and some cysts were further examined by scanning electron microscopy or DNA amplification and sequencing of the small subunit (ssu) rRNA gene. Two Sarcocystis species, Sarcocystis gracilis and Sarcocystis oviformis n. sp., were found and described by morphological and molecular methods. S. gracilis was found in all animals, whereas S… CONTINUE READING
