babesia lengau sp. nov., a novel babesia species in cheetah (acinonyx jubatus, schreber, 1775) populations in south a previous paper, we reported on a large number of cheetah blood specimens that gave positive signals only for babesia and/or theileria genus-specific probes on the reverse line blot (rlb) assay, indicating the presence of a novel species or variant of an existing species. some of these specimens were investigated further by microscopic, serological, sequencing, and phylogenetic analyses. the near-full-length 18s rrna genes of 13 samples, as well as the second internal transcribed spacer (its ...201020519464
prevalence and diversity of babesia, hepatozoon, ehrlichia, and bartonella in wild and domestic carnivores from zambia, africa.a molecular survey was conducted for several hemoparasites of domestic dogs and three species of wild carnivores from two sites in zambia. three babesia spp. were detected including babesia felis and babesia leo in lions (panthera leo) and a babesia sp. (similar to babesia lengau) in spotted hyenas (crocuta crocuta) and a single lion. all wild dogs (lycaon pictus) and domestic dogs were negative for babesia. high prevalences for hepatozoon were noted in all three wild carnivores (38-61%) and in ...201424363181
babesia lengau associated with cerebral and haemolytic babesiosis in two domestic cats.although reported sporadically from various countries, feline babesiosis appears to be a significant clinical entity only in south africa, where babesia felis is usually incriminated as the causative agent. babesia lengau, recently described from asymptomatic cheetahs, has now possibly been incriminated as the causative agent in two severe clinical cases in domestic cats.201323634743
piroplasms in brown hyaenas (parahyaena brunnea) and spotted hyaenas (crocuta crocuta) in namibia and south africa are closely related to babesia lengau.the objective of our study was identification and molecular characterization of piroplasms and rickettsias occurring in brown (parahyaena brunnea) and spotted hyaenas (crocuta crocuta) from various localities in namibia and south africa. whole blood (n = 59) and skin (n = 3) specimens from brown (n = 15) and spotted hyaenas (n = 47) were screened for the presence of babesia, theileria, ehrlichia and anaplasma species using the reverse line blot (rlb) hybridization technique. pcr products of 52/6 ...201727913878
