single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis of genetic variation in labiostrongylus longispicularis from kangaroos.single-strand conformation polymorphism (sscp) analysis was employed to screen for sequence heterogeneity in the second internal transcribed spacer (its-2) of ribosomal (r) dna of labiostrongylus longispicularis, a parasitic strongylid nematode occuring in some species of kangaroo in different geographical regions of australia. the results showed that most of the nematodes screened had different sscp profiles, which were subsequently shown to correspond to polymorphisms and/or an indel in the it ...200111465490
antibodies to the ross river virus in captive marsupials in urban areas of eastern new south wales, australia.serum samples collected from 224 tammar wallabies (macropus eugenii) in two captive populations in urban areas in eastern new south wales australia, between december 1999 and may 2004, were tested for antibodies to ross river virus (rrv). in one population in northwest sydney, 21 animals (11%) tested positive, and in another population in newcastle, new south wales, thirteen (33%) of the animals were positive. antibodies were detected in four of 11 wallaroos (macropus robustus) (36%) but not in ...200516244073
subtype distribution of blastocystis isolates from a variety of animals from new south wales, australia.a total of 438 stool samples from 38 different species of animal from seven different locations were studied for the presence of blastocystis. pcr analysis was completed on all samples and dna sequence data from the rdna were submitted to subtype allocation. there was a total of 80 (18%) sequences from 18 species, and nine different subtypes were identified - st1, st2, st3, st4, st5, st7, st11, st12 and st13. this is the first report of blastocystis from the eastern grey kangaroo, red kangaroo, ...201323398989
