diversity analysis of sheep breeds from southern peninsular and eastern regions of india.information is presented on the genetic diversity and relationship among six indian sheep breeds/populations belonging to the southern peninsular and eastern agroecological zones, based on microsatellite markers. parameters of genetic variation, viz., allele diversity, observed heterozygosity, gene diversity and population inbreeding estimates, were calculated for the six breeds. the allele diversity ranged from 6.40 to 7.92, whereas the gene diversity varied from 0.617 to 0.727. the highest all ...201020938738
disseminated unicellular green algal infection in two sheep in india.unicellular green algae infected and disseminated in two adult nellore brown rams in india. at necropsy multiple green lesions were observed in the lungs, liver and kidneys of both sheep. histological examination revealed necrotizing granulomas that contained numerous spheroidal to elliptical organisms ranging from 5-20 micrometers in diameter. these organisms occurred in several reproductive stages: small (5-9 micrometers) single, undifferentiated cells; intermediate (9-15 micrometers) cells un ...19836837849
studies on amphistomiasis in andhra pradesh (india) vi. immunization of lambs and kids with gamma irradiated metacercariae of cercariae indicae xxvi.the life span and the pathogenicity of amphistomes developing from cercariae indicae xxvi (paramphistomum epicilitum) were considerably reduced when the metacercariae were gamma-irradiated at 2 krad or 3 krad. the higher irradiation dose resulted in the complete absence of the flukes in infected animals. single vaccination of lambs and kids with 3000 metacercariae irradiated at 2 krad or 3 krad stimulated a significant degree of resistance against challenge with 5000 non-irradiated metacercariae ...19817229328
