Observation on Nematocystis kailashi sp. nov. (Apicomplexa: Eugregarinida) from an Indian earthworm Glyphidrilus tuberosus Stephenson (Annelida: Oligochaeta)
Based on critical analysis and comparison with earlier reported species, the species under discussion established as new one. Expand
DNA Barcoding of Apicomplexa: Mitochondrial Evolution across the Phylum
The mt COI locus is recommended as a suitable DNA barcoding target for coccidian parasites of veterinary and zoonotic importance and Mitochondrial COI sequences were concluded to be better species-level markers than the widely used nu 18S rDNA locus; mtCOI sequences had utility in both diagnostic and phylogenetic studies.

The present state of species-systematics in Sarcocystis Lankester, 1882 (Protista, Sporozoa, Coccidia)
The genus Sarcocystis Lankester, 1882, including the synonymous genus Frenkelia Biocca, 1968, (SarcocyStidae Poche, 1913) is revised on the basis of named species and it is stressed that the ultrastructure of the sarcocyst wall is a reliable character in mature sarcocysts, contrary to misleading interpretations.

Tick-borne parasitic diseases in cattle: current knowledge and prospective risk analysis related to the ongoing evolution in French cattle farming systems.
The epidemiology of parasitic diseases is changing, especially because of changes in the environmental characteristics, i.e. both farm and herd management conditions and also climatic conditions, which results in likely modifications of the endemic situation, with a higher risk of clinical babesiosis in the medium term.

Phylogenetic relationships of the genus Frenkelia: a review of its history and new knowledge gained from comparison of large subunit ribosomal ribonucleic acid gene sequences.
All of the analyses produced trees supporting the paraphyly of the genus Sarcocystis if Frenkelia was recognised as a valid genus and, thus, call for a revision of the current definition of these genera. Expand
Dirhynchocystis indica (Apicomplexa, Rhynchocystinae), a new gregarine species from the earthworm Lampito mauritii (Annelida, Oligochaeta) in India
Summary Dirhynchocystis indica, a new gregarine species from the earthworm Lampito mauritii (Annelida, Oligochaeta) from West Bengal, India, is described. Mature trophozoit has an elliptical bodyExpand
An annotated checklist of the valid avian species of Haemoproteus, Leucocytozoon (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida) and Hepatozoon (Apicomplexa: Haemogregarinidae)
The valid avian species of the apicomplexan blood parasite genera Haemoproteus, Hepatozoon and Leucocytozoon are arranged according to host family, assuming host familial specificity; salient pointsExpand
The conceptual basis for a new classification of the coccidia.
The immediate outcome of the Controversial Roundtable on 'New classification of coccidia' recommends the establishment of an international group of scientists to meet on a regular basis to stimulate and encourage discussion and debate on current classification schemes for the group of parasitic protozoa known as the eimeriid coccidi.

Prevalence of Babesiosis in Cattle in Patna Region, India
Babesiosis is an important tick-borne disease of cattle caused by infection with hemoprotozoan parasites of the genus Babesia. Among the genus Babesia parasites, B. bigemina and B. bovis are the mainExpand
A conserved ankyrin repeat-containing protein regulates conoid stability, motility and cell invasion in Toxoplasma gondii
An essential component named conoid protein hub 1 (CPH1) is identified, which is conserved in apicomplexan parasites and contains ankyrin repeats that are required for structural integrity of the conoid, parasite motility, and host cell invasion. Expand
