the host-specificity of theileria sp. (sable) and theileria sp. (sable-like) in african bovidae and detection of novel theileria in antelope and giraffe.tick-borne diseases caused by theileria are of economic importance in domestic and wildlife ruminants. the majority of theileria infects a limited number of host species, supporting the concept of host specificity. however, some theileria seem to be generalists challenging the host specificity paradigm, such as theileria sp. (sable) reported from various vertebrate hosts, including african buffalo, cattle, dogs and different antelope species. we tested the hypothesis that t. sp. (sable) uses bov ...202031566155
isolation and characterization of species-specific microsatellite markers for blue and black wildebeest (connochaetes taurinus and c. gnou).the bluewildebeest (connochaetes taurinus) is distributed throughout southern and east africa while the black wildebeest (connochaetes gnou) is endemic to south africa and was driven to near extinction in the early 1900s due to hunting pressure and disease outbreaks. extensive translocation of both species throughout south africa is threatening the genetic integrity of blue and blackwilde beest. to effectively manage these species, genetic tools that can be used to detect hybrid individuals, ide ...201830574875
novel mycobacterium avium complex species isolated from black wildebeest (connochaetes gnou) in south africa.a study was undertaken to isolate and characterize mycobacterium species from black wildebeest suspected of being infected with tuberculosis in south africa. this led to the discovery of a new mycobacterium avium complex species, provisionally referred to as the gnou isolate from black wildebeest (connochaetes gnou). sixteen samples from nine black wildebeest were processed for mycobacterium isolation. following decontamination, samples were incubated in an ordinary incubator at 37°c on löwenste ...201526671520
wildebeest-associated malignant catarrhal fever: perspectives for integrated control of a lymphoproliferative disease of cattle in sub-saharan africa.wildebeest-associated malignant catarrhal fever (wa-mcf), an acute lymphoproliferative disease of cattle caused by alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 (alhv-1), remains a significant constraint to cattle production in nomadic pastoralist systems in eastern and southern africa. the transmission of wa-mcf is dependent on the presence of the wildlife reservoir, i.e. wildebeest, belonging to the species connochaetes taurinus and connochaetes gnou; hence, the distribution of wa-mcf is largely restricted to ken ...201626446889
