analysis of 16s rrna gene sequences of ehrlichia canis, anaplasma platys, and wolbachia species from canine blood in the present study, three canine blood samples from japan, that were suspected to be ehrlichia positive were examined. after sequencing the 16s rrna genes, each dog was found to be infected either with ehrlichia canis (kagoshima 1), anaplasma platys (okinawa 1), or wolbachia sp. (okinawa 2). phylogenic analysis was performed on these sequences. the nearly entire 16s rrna sequence of kagoshima 1 was found to be most similar to the sequences from oklahoma and venezuela e. canis strains (1 base p ...200312860708
detection of anaplasma bovis dna in the peripheral blood of domestic dogs in japan.the prevalence of ehrlichia and anaplasma in 1,427 dogs from 32 japanese prefectures was evaluated by pcr and dna nucleotide sequencing. pcr screening demonstrated that 18 dogs (1.3%) were positive for anaplasmataceae. sequence analysis revealed that 14 of the amplicons were most closely related to wolbachia spp., symbionts of dirofilaria immitis, whereas three were identified as anaplasma bovis. the remaining amplicon could not be sequenced. almost the entire sequence of 16s rrna (1,452 bp) fro ...201020859003
nematodes from raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus) introduced recently on yakushima island, japan.nematodes were collected from 14 raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus) on yakushima island, kagoshima prefecture (kyushu), japan, that were the progeny of recently introduced animals to this world natural heritage area, probably within the last 2 decades. seven nematode species (toxocara tanuki, ancylostoma kusimaense, arthrostoma miyazakiense, strongyloides planiceps, trichuris vulpis, gongylonema sp., and dirofilaria immitis) were collected from the raccoon dogs. two nematode spec ...200616891782
