|Title:||Genetic diversity of Trypanosoma evansi in beef cattle based on internal transcribed spacer region|
internal transcribed spacer
Molecular Sequence Data
|Abstract:||This study was focused on genetic diversity of Trypanosoma evansi which is a widely distributed haemoflagellate of veterinary importance that infects a variety of larger mammals including horses, mules, camels, buffalo, cattle and deer. The genetic diversity of T. evansi of beef cattle LAM19 was accomplished by using phylogenetic analysis based on internal transcribed spacer region (ITS). Blood sample was collected from a naturally infected beef cattle LAM 19 and parasitemia was raised by mouse inoculation. The parasites were collected and isolated by using DE 52 DEAE cellulose anion exchange column prior to DNA extraction. Upon PCR amplification of ITS region, the product of 1300 bp in size was obtained. The ITS nucleotide sequences were analyzed and revealed that it could demonstrate the genetic diversity of T. evansi of beef cattle LAM19. Based on the ITS tree, beef cattle LAM 19 T. evansi were categorized into two main groups where the genetic diversity occurred within Group 1. The data could be applicable for the survey of parasite dynamics, epidemiological studies as well as prevention and control of the disease. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
