eimerians from different karyotypes of the japanese wood mouse (apodemus spp.), with descriptions of two new species and a redescription of eimeria montgomeryae lewis and ball, 1983.examination of 131 wood mice (apodemus spp.) representing 2 species and 6 subspecies collected from the japanese islands of hokkaido, honshu, kyushu, and tsushima showed that 70 mice (53%) had coccidian oocysts in their feces. these included 21 of 42 (50%) apodemus argenteus argenteus; 7 of 14 (50%) apodemus argenteus hokkaidi; 2 of 3 (67%) apodemus argenteus sagax; 3 of 9 (33%) apodemus speciosus ainu; 36 of 61 (59%) apodemus speciosus speciosus; and 1 of 2 (50%) apodemus speciosus tusimaensis. ...19854093813
comparison of ehrlichia muris strains isolated from wild mice and ticks and serologic survey of humans and animals with e. muris as metropolitan tokyo, the ehrlichia muris seropositivity rate of 24 wild mice was 63% in hinohara village, but in the surrounding areas, it was 0 to 5%. this finding suggests that the reservoir of e. muris is focal. among the 15 seropositive mice, ehrlichiae were isolated from 9 apodemus speciosus mice and 1 a. argenteus mouse, respectively. five ehrlichial isolates were obtained from 10 ticks (haemaphysalis flava) collected in asuke town, aichi prefecture, where the e. muris type strain had be ...199910074536
a trend of central versus peripheral structuring in mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequences of the japanese wood mouse, apodemus speciosus.a phylogeographic analysis was performed on japanese endemic wood mice (apodemus speciosus) using nuclear interphotoreceptor retinol binding protein (irbp) gene sequences (1,152 bp), together with previously published mitochondrial cytochrome b (cyt b) data. in the irbp analysis, 40 haplotypes were recovered from 84 individuals by statistical and subcloning methods. substantial sequence variation was determined from the irbp data (pi=0.0047), and no significant evidence of recombination was dete ...200818393564
