prevalence and genotypes of enterocytozoon bieneusi in sika deer in jilin province, northeastern china.enterocytozoon bieneusi is one of the most important zoonotic pathogen that can infect almost all animals, including humans. however, little information is available regarding prevalence and genotypes of e. bieneusi in sika deer. in the present study, the prevalence of e. bieneusi infection in sika deer in jilin province, northeastern china was examined using pcr amplification of the internal transcribed spacer (its) region of the ribosomal rna (rrna) gene. 23 (7.06%) of 326 samples were tested ...201627078663
molecular characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi in domestic rabbits (oryctolagus cuniculus) in northeastern china.a study of 426 rabbits from 3 cities in jilin province (changchun city and jilin city) and liaoning province (shenyang city) was conducted between may and june 2015. the overall prevalence of e. bieneusi in rabbits was 0.94% (4/426), with 0% (0/116), 1.72% (3/174), and 0.74% (1/136) in jilin, changchun, and shenyang city, respectively. only 3 farms (farm 1 and farm 3 in changchun city, farm 8 in shenyang city) were pcr-positive for e. bieneusi. moreover, rabbits of more than 6 months (1.72%) had ...201626951984
genotypic distribution and phylogenetic characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi in diarrheic chickens and pigs in multiple cities, china: potential zoonotic transmission.this study investigated diarrheic broiler and layer chickens (<50 days; n=14) and pigs of three age groups (preweaned <30 days, weaned ≈30 to 60 days, and growing >60 days; n=64) for e. bieneusi genotypes in northeast china and evaluated the potential roles of chickens and pigs in zoonotic transmission of microsporidiosis. two 45-day-old layer chickens in city jixi, heilongjiang province and one 23-day-old broiler chicken in city songyuan, jilin province were identified to harbor a human-pathoge ...201425255117
genotypes of enterocytozoon bieneusi in livestock in china: high prevalence and zoonotic potential.despite many recent advances in genotype characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi worldwide and the exploration of the extent of cross-species transmission of microsporidiosis between humans and animals, the epidemiology of this neglected disease in china is poorly understood. in this study, a very high prevalence (60.3%; 94/156) of e. bieneusi infections in farmed pigs in jilin province was detected by pcr of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (its). dna sequence analysis of 88 e. bie ...201424845247
genotyping of enterocytozoon bieneusi in farmed blue foxes (alopex lagopus) and raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) in china.enterocytozoon bieneusi is the most common species of microsporidia found both in humans and animals. farmed animals, particularly closely associated to humans, may play an important role of zoonotic reservoir in transmitting this disease to humans. the fur industry is a major economic component in some parts of china. to understand the prevalence, genotype variety and zoonotic risk of e. bieneusi in farmed foxes and raccoon dogs, two species of fur animals, fecal specimens of 110 blue foxes and ...201526544711
prevalence, risk factors and molecular characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi in raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) in five provinces of northern china.the disease microsporidiosis is found worldwide and is mainly caused by enterocytozoon bieneusi. e. bieneusi can infect a wide range of hosts; however, information regarding the prevalence and genotyping of e. bieneusi infection in raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) is limited. therefore, in 2015, we examined 305 faecel samples from 80 farmed raccoon dogs in jilin province, from 54 in hebei province, from 72 in liaoning province, from 29 in shandong province, and from 40 in heilongjiang pro ...201627260667
