screening for <i>hepatozoon</i> parasites in gerbils and potential predators in south africa.samples of gerbils and their potential predators were screened for the presence of hepatozoon parasites (apicomplexa: adeleorina) using both microscopic examination and sequencing of partial 18s rrna sequences. positive samples were compared to published sequences in a phylogenetic framework. the results indicate that genets can be infected with hepatozoon felis. a cape fox was infected with hepatozoon canis, whereas the sequence from an infected rodent fell within a group of parasites primarily ...201728235289
the antibody response to myoglobin is independent of the immunized species. analysis in terms of replacements in the antigenic sites and in environmental residues of the cross-reactions of fifteen myoglobins with sperm-whale myoglobin antisera raised in different species.the recent determination of the entire antigenic structure of sperm-whale myoglobin with rabbit and goat antisera has permitted the examination of whether the antigenic structure recognized by antibodies depends on the species in which the antisera are raised. also, by knowledge of the antigenic structure, the molecular factors that determine and influence antigenicity can be better understood in terms of the effects of amino acid substitutions occurring in the antigenic sites and in the environ ...19806169338
comparative morphology of the mandibulodental complex in wild and domestic canids.the relationships between mandibular and dental measurements were investigated in a sample of 60 adult domestic dogs, 17 black-backed jackals canis mesomelas, 18 side-striped jackals c. adustus and 16 cape foxes vulpes chama. standard mesiodistal and buccolingual tooth measurements, together with 8 mandibular measurements (intercondylar distance, intercarnassial breadth, mandibular length, arch length, condylar height, canine-condylar length, mandibular width, mandibular height) were scaled allo ...19921487435
the myoglobin of the cape fox (vulpes chama).tryptic, peptic and chymotryptic peptides from the myoglobin of the cape fox (vulpes chama) have been aligned with the sequence of the myoglobin of the domestic dog. no amino acid difference was found. seven carnivore myoglobins now known are compared amongst themselves and it is noted that though the differences between them are found in many different parts of the myoglobin molecule, there seems to be a higher incidence along the loop formed by helix g, the interhelical region gh and the helix ...1977889878
mandibulodental allometry in the african wild dog, lycaon pictus.mandibulodental relations were evaluated in a sample of 34 adult lycaon pictus crania (18 males, 16 females). standard mesiodistal and buccolingual measurements, together with 8 mandibular measurements (intercondylar distance, intercarnassial breadth, mandibular length, arch length, condylar height, canine-condylar length, mandibular width, mandibular height) were allometrically scaled to total skull length. these results were then compared with those of domestic dogs and of 3 smaller southern a ...19921294562
