status of haemaphysalis tick infestation in domestic ruminants in iran.the geographical distribution and ecological preferences of haemaphysalis in domestic animals in iran were studied 4 times a year from april 2003 to march 2005. a total of 1,622 ixodid tick specimens were collected from 3 different zones. among them, 108 (6.7%) haemaphysalis ticks, consisting of 6 species, were identified; h. punctata (3.4%), h. parva (0.5%), h. sulcata (0.6%), h. choldokovskyi (1.7%), h. concinna (0.06%) and haemaphysalis sp. (0.6%). h. punctata was the most abundant species, w ...200717570976
the prevalence of linguatula serrata nymphs in goats slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, kerman, iran.linguatula serrata is one of the zoonotic parasites. the aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of nymphal stages of l. serrata in mesenteric and mediastinal lymph nodes of goats slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, southeast of iran. for this purpose, mesenteric and mediastinal lymph nodes of 407 goats of different sex and age were examined, revealing an infection prevalence of 49.1%. the prevalence of l. serrata infection among goats is higher than previously reported from iran and ...201020418017
reproductive characteristics of rayini male goats of kerman province in artificial vagina was used to collect semen from 14 native iranian rayini goats, at 15-day intervals starting on 1 july and ending on 30 december 2000. testicular size, semen volume, sperm concentration, percent live sperm, percent normal sperm, and total number of live-normal sperm were significantly higher during the summer months. the average semen volume, percent live sperm and percent abnormal sperm during the sampling period varied between 1 and 1.4 ml, 60 and 78%, and 7 and 13%, respec ...200616413152
ultrastructure and pathology of besnoitia caprae in the naturally infected goats of kerman, east of iran.a disease with clinical manifestations of thickening and alopecia of the skin over the lower limbs, around the eyes, face, and nose, thickening and shrinkage of the scrotum, and presence of white granular cysts in the sclero-conjunctiva in goats in kerman province, were reported to the pathology department of shiraz veterinary school. primary histopathological studies demonstrated an outbreak of caprine besnoitiosis in this region. to study the histopathological and ultrastructural features of t ...200818246464
the goat domestication process inferred from large-scale mitochondrial dna analysis of wild and domestic individuals.the emergence of farming during the neolithic transition, including the domestication of livestock, was a critical point in the evolution of human kind. the goat (capra hircus) was one of the first domesticated ungulates. in this study, we compared the genetic diversity of domestic goats to that of the modern representatives of their wild ancestor, the bezoar, by analyzing 473 samples collected over the whole distribution range of the latter species. this partly confirms and significantly clarif ...200819004765
genetic characterization of echinococcus granulosus in camels, cattle and sheep from the south-east of iran indicates the presence of the g3 genotype.echinococcus granulosus, the aetiologic agent of cystic echinococcosis (ce), is one of the most important zoonotic helminthes worldwide. isolates of the parasite show considerable genetic variation in different intermediate hosts. several genotypes and species are described in different eco-epidemiological settings. this study investigated e. granulosus genotypes existing in livestock and humans from the province of kerman, located in south-eastern iran, using sequencing data of cox1 and nad1 mi ...201121749740
