The Asian bush mosquito Aedes japonicus japonicus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Europe, 17 years after its first detection, with a focus on monitoring methods

After the first detection of the Asian bush mosquito Aedes japonicus japonicus in the year 2000 in France, its invasive nature was revealed in 2008 in Switzerland and Germany. In the following years, accumulating...

Publication date: Available online 24 August 2019Source: Molecular and Biochemical ParasitologyAuthor(s): Eugene A. Rogozhin, Mikhail M. Solovyev, Tatiana V. Frolova, Galina I. IzvekovaAbstractThe inhibitors produced by the parasitic worms successfully protect them from the host’s proteases and are supposed to underlie the host-parasite specificity. Our previous study has shown that the extracts from the pike tapeworm Triaenophorus nodulosus inhibit host proteinases and commercial trypsin. We aimed to isolate and identify the components responsible for trypsin inactivation. After a two-step separation the molecular m...

The control of disease is mainly based on chemotherapy and preventing animals from tick infestation and to date no vaccine is available ...

SargisonAbstractPiroplasmosis is caused by tick-borne haemoprotozoa of the genera Theileria and Babesia. These parasitic infections can seriously impact on the health of livestock and production. Piroplasms of multiple species can be present in a single host, but reliable molecular diagnostic tools are needed in order to understand the composition of these complex paras...

Oligoarginine peptides are capable of increasing cell membrane permeability (cell penetrating peptides), and for this reason are interesting delivery sy...

Dirks, Kurt BuchmannAbstractHigh infection levels due to third-stage larvae of the anisakid nematode Contracaecum osculatum have been documented in cod from the eastern part of the Baltic sea during the latest decades. The nematode larvae mainly infect the liver of Baltic cod and prevalence of infection has reached 100% with a mean intensity up to 80 parasites per host in certain areas and size classes. Low condition factors of the cod have been observed concomitant wi...

Control of shellfish diseases mostly relies on prevention measures including transfer restrictions and stock management measures such as breeding programmes. These prevention and mitigation measures require a be...

This genetic diversity is believed to be associated with clinical characteristics and outcomes, but evidences supporting such associations ha...

In this study, we genetically characterised Monogenea found on the gill of common carp in Iran. In total, 5603 parasites were recovered from 112 fish. The parasites were first identified morphologically as Dactylogyrus extensus, D. anchoratus, D. vastator, D. minutus, D. achmerowi and Gyrodactylus sprostonae. Representative samples were then subjected to sequencing. This is one of the first studies which has provided both morphological and sequence data for Dactylogyrus spp. and G. sprostonae. Our findings provide a foundation for future research into the genetic make-up of these economically significant parasites and the ...
