phylogeography and postglacial expansion of mus musculus domesticus inferred from mitochondrial dna coalescent, from iran to europe.few genetic data document the postglacial history of the western house mouse, mus musculus domesticus. we address this by studying a sample from the southeastern tip of the fertile crescent in the iranian province of ahvaz. including other published and unpublished data from france, germany, italy, bulgaria, turkey and other places in iran, altogether 321 mitochondrial d-loop sequences are simultaneously analysed. the patterns of coalescence obtained corroborate the classical proposal according ...200818179435
occurrence of aflatoxin m1 in raw milk of five dairy species in ahvaz, iran.during november 2007 to december 2008, 311 samples of raw milk from cow, water buffalo, camel, sheep, and goat were collected in the ahvaz (southwest iran). all of the samples were analyzed for presence of aflatoxin m1 (afm1) by competitive elisa technique. afm1 was found in 42.1% of the samples by average concentration of 43.3+/-43.8 ng/kg. the incidence rates of afm1 in raw cow, water buffalo, camel, sheep, and goat milks were, 78.7%, 38.7%, 12.5%, 37.3%, and 27.1%, respectively. the concentra ...201019786054
identification of different theileria species (theileria lestoquardi, theileria ovis, and theileria annulata) in naturally infected sheep using nested pcr-rflp.ovine theileriosis is an important hemoprotozoal disease of sheep and goats in tropical and subtropical regions that leads to economic losses in these animals. a nested pcr-restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) was carried out to identification theileria species in sheep in some area in western half of iran (sari, rasht, urmia, ilam, and ahvaz). two hundred and fifty blood samples were taken from sheep during tick activating season (summer of 2008). microscopic examination revealed tha ...201020978792
an abattoir-based study on the prevalence and economic losses due to cystic echinococcosis in slaughtered herbivores in ahwaz, south-western iran.a 10-year (1998-2008) retrospective study was carried out to investigate the prevalence and long-term trend of hydatid disease in slaughtered herbivores in the large complex abattoir of ahwaz (the capital of khuzestan province, south-western iran). a total of 3,583,417 animals including 2,815,982 sheep, 427,790 goats and 339,645 cattle were inspected macroscopically for hydatid cysts in the 10-year period, and overall 155,555 (4.24%) livers and 228,172 (6.37%) lungs were condemned. cystic echino ...201120398435

present status of trichostrongyliasis in iran.infection with species of trichostrongylus is common among man and animals in most parts of iran, and human infections with t. orientalis, t. colubriformis, t. vitrinus, t. axei, t. capricola, t. probolurus, t. skrjabini, and a possibly new, unnamed species have been reported. all are found in isfahan, central iran, where the overall prevalence is 67% and the predominant species are t. orientalis and t. colubriformis. among 737 nomads migrating from the central parts to the south, 86% were found ...19751239198
