[determination of tick species and treatment of cows, sheep and goats in the sivas-zara region].the purpose of this study was to examine tick infestation in cattle, sheep and goats in the zara-sivas region for one year and to determine the epizootiology of the tick species as well as to investigate treatment of the infested animals. tick infestation was detected in 71 (29.6%) out of 240 cattle, 66 (24.0%) out of 275 sheep and 50 (19.9%) out of 252 goats in the zara region. it has been shown that the tick infestation on cattle included haemaphysalis parva (33.8%), dermacentor marginatus (2. ...200617160854
molecular detection and identification of ehrlichia and anaplasma species in ixodid ticks.a polymerase chain reaction (pcr) assay followed by partial sequencing of the 16s ribosomal rna gene was performed for the presence of ehrlichia and/or anaplasma. a total of 242 ixodid ticks were collected from domestic ruminants and their shelters, as well as humans, and their individual salivary glands were dissected out for dna. from the 242 ticks analyzed, six (2.47%), comprising three hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum, one rhipicephalus bursa, and two rhipicephalus sanguineus, were positive. o ...200919247690
genetic analysis of the m rna segment of crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus strains in turkey.crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever (cchf) virus is member of the genus nairovirus of the family bunyaviridae. all members of the family bunyaviridae are enveloped viruses containing tripartite, negative polarity, single-stranded rna. cchf is characterized by high case mortality, occurring in asia, africa, the middle east and europe. during recent years, outbreaks have been reported in turkey. however, little information is available on the genetic diversity of cchf virus in turkey. in this study, a ...200817955162
detection of babesia ovis by pcr in rhipicephalus bursa collected from naturally infested sheep and goats.polymerase chain reaction (pcr) was used to assess the presence and the frequency of babesia ovis infection in the adult rhipicephalus bursa and their hosts in elazig province located in eastern turkey. tick and blood samples were collected from 32 sheep and 28 goats of four selected herds. a total of 226 r. bursa were randomly selected from the collected ticks and their salivary glands were dissected out in 0.85% saline under stereo microscope. dna amplification method revealed that the frequen ...200817881019
determination of prevalence and risk factors for infection with babesia ovis in small ruminants from turkey by polymerase chain this study, pcr and thin blood smear-based diagnostic methods were used to assess the frequency of babesia infection in small ruminants. a total of 300 sheep and 100 goats from 37 randomly selected herds located in eight locations of eastern turkey were examined for the presence of babesia infection and any tick species on the body of the animals. of 400 blood samples examined, 6 (1.5%) were positive for babesia spp. piroplasms upon microscopic examination, whereas 33 (8.25%) were positive fo ...200717096146
pcr-based detection of theileria ovis in rhipicephalus bursa adult ticks.tick-borne diseases in ruminants are common in tropical and subtropical regions and lead to meat and milk production losses. in this study, polymerase chain reaction (pcr) was used to assess the presence of theileria ovis in rhipicephalus bursa ticks. we have demonstrated that the pcr enabled detection of t. ovis in field isolates of r. bursa collected from naturally infested sheep and goats in eastern turkey. the sampling was done in spring season (between may and june 2004). a total of 420 r. ...200616682122
a molecular survey of bovine theileria parasites among apparently healthy cattle and with a note on the distribution of ticks in eastern turkey.a survey of theileria parasites in cattle in eastern turkey was carried out using specific polymerase chain reaction. a total of 252 blood samples were collected from clinically healthy cattle between june and july 2004. of 252 blood samples examined, 41 (16%) were positive for piroplasms by microscopy, whereas 114 (45%) were positive for the presence of at least one species of theileria by pcr. the percentages of positive animals for theileria annulata and benign theileria species (theileria se ...200616510248
status of tick infestation of cattle in the kayseri region of turkey.this study was carried out to determine the status of tick infestation of cattle in the kayseri region in turkey. eight hundred and sixty-six cattle and their barns in 12 localities were examined during the period of june 2000-november 2001, where 188 (21.7%) of which were infested by ticks. a total of 1,585 ticks consisting of rhipicephalus turanicus (2.27%), r. bursa (2.14%), r. sanguineus (0.94%), hyalomma marginatum (17.16%), h. anatolicum excavatum (24.73%), h. a. anatolicum (19.62%), derma ...200717823821
