isolation and identification of virulent peste des petits ruminants viruses from ppr outbreaks in india.in this study, three outbreaks of peste des petits ruminants (ppr) in goats and sheep flocks with high morbidity and considerable mortality were recorded at jhansi and revati in uttar pradesh and bhopal in madhya pradesh, india during 2003-2006. clinical samples were collected from the affected flocks for laboratory investigation. the ppr virus (pprv) antigen/nucleic acid in the infected tissues/swab materials was demonstrated by using sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) and rever ...201020204510
pathogenic 'bison-type' mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis genotype characterized from riverine buffalo (bubalus bubalis) in north india.despite low per-animal productivity of ruminants in developing countries, johne's disease has not been investigated in buffaloes, which are primarily found in these countries. this is due to lack of expertise, diagnostic kits and priority to production diseases like johne's disease. presence of pathogenic mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (map) was investigated by screening of target tissues (mesenteric lymph nodes and large intestine) by culture and is 900 pcr, in 50 sacrificed bu ...200817804069

dermatophytes isolated from selected ruminants in india.a survey was carried out in different areas of uttar pradesh for isolating and identifying dermatophytes from ruminants. out of 102 skin scrapings, collected from various animals, 4/22 cattle, 1/9 buffalo, 14/44 sheep and 2/28 goats were koh positive. in respect of the cattle, the culture positive samples yielded one strain each of trichophyton mentagrophytes, t. rubrum, t. simii and two strains of microsporum gypseum. from the buffaloes examined, only one case yielded a dermatophyte and it was ...19989850594
wildlife (boselaphus tragocamelus)-small ruminant (goat and sheep) interface in the transmission of 'bison type' genotype of mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis in india.information on mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (map) genotypes infecting different animal species in india is limited. presence of map was investigated in free ranging antelopes (locally known as nilgai/blue bulls/boselaphus tragocamelus) using direct microscopy, culture, is900 pcr and is1311 pcr-rea. is900 elements of map from nilgai and previously isolated from goats were sequenced and compared to establish inter-species transmission between free ranging nilgai and closed farm ...201018805585
genotyping of benzimidazole susceptible and resistant alleles in different populations of haemonchus contortus from himalayan and sub-himalayan regions of north-west india.an allele-specific pcr was standardized to diagnose the mutation (phe to try) at residue 200 of the isotype 1 beta tubulin gene responsible for benzimidazole resistance in haemonchus contortus adult and infective larvae. adult and infective larvae of haemonchus contortus were collected from sheep under different managemental practices (intensive and extensive) in temperate himalayan regions (mukteshwar and kedarkhatta), sub-himalayan region (pantnagar) of uttarakhand state and subtropical region ...200919101817
