survey of free-ranging elk from wyoming and montana for selected pathogens.from december 1991 through january 1995, a disease survey was conducted on herds of free-ranging, hunter-killed elk (cervus elaphus nelsoni) from three areas in proximity to yellowstone national park (ynp), wyoming (usa), after tuberculosis caused by mycobacterium bovis was discovered in a captive herd of elk in the area. complete or partial sets of specimens from 289 elk collected between december 1991 and january 1993 were examined histologically; no mycobacterial lesions were observed. lesion ...19979131561
restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of mycobacterium bovis isolates from captive and free-ranging animals.mycobacterium bovis isolates from cattle, captive elk, and free-ranging mule deer and coyotes were examined by restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) analysis. dna extracted from each isolate was digested with restriction endonucleases alui and pvuii. dna probes used for southern hybridizations were a 37-base oligonucleotide and a 123-base-pair sequence specific for the insertion sequence is6110 and a plasmid, ptbn12, which contains a polymorphic gc-rich repetitive sequence present in s ...19979376427
bovine tuberculosis in a free-ranging mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) from montana.a survey of 41 mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) and three white-tailed deer (o. virginianus) for bovine tuberculosis was conducted on a montana (usa) cattle ranch from 2 november 1993 through january 1994. gross and microscopic lesions typical of tuberculosis were present in tonsil and lymph nodes of the head, thorax, and abdomen of one adult female mule deer. additionally, a single microgranuloma considered morphologically suggestive of tuberculosis was present in one lymph node of the head of a ...19958592372
