ticks (acari: ixodidae) parasitizing wild carnivores in phu khieo wildlife sanctuary, thailand.ixodid ticks were collected and identified from 8 wild carnivore species in phu khieo wildlife sanctuary, northeastern thailand. six tick species belonging to 4 genera were recovered and identified from 132 individuals. these included amblyomma testudinarium (n = 36), haemaphysalis asiatica (n = 58), h. hystricis (n = 31), h. semermis (n = 3), rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides (n = 3), and ixodes granulatus (n = 1). leopard cats (prionailurus bengalensis) (n = 19) were infested with 4 tick species, ...200415270119
coinfection with hepatozoon sp. and canine distemper virus in a yellow-throated marten ( martes flavigula koreana) in korea.we describe coinfection with hepatozoon sp. and canine distemper virus (cdv) in a yellow-throated marten ( martes flavigula koreana). we found hepatozoon cysts in muscular tissue and viral inclusion bodies in the brain. hepatozoon sp., and cdv was confirmed in blood and brain, respectively, by pcr.201627054471
[new evidence for the spread of thelazia callipaeda in the far east].thelazia callipaeda nematodes parasitize in the eyes of domestic and wild carnivorous mammals (more often in canidae). numerous cases of human infestation are also known. the nematode spreads in south and east asia although in the last decade this has been reported from dogs, cats and wolves in south and central europe as well. in the russian federation, t. callipaeda was earlier observed in dogs, cats, foxes and raccoon dogs in some regions of the russian far east. two cases of human infestatio ...201525850318
spatial co-occurrence and activity patterns of mesocarnivores in the temperate forests of southwest china.understanding the interactions between species and their coexistence mechanisms will help explain biodiversity maintenance and enable managers to make sound conservation decisions. mesocarnivores are abundant and diverse mid-sized carnivores and can have profound impacts on the function, structure and dynamics of ecosystem after the extirpation of apex predators in many ecosystems. the moist temperate forests of southwest china harbor a diverse community of mesocarnivores in the absence of apex ...201627723772
application of molecular genetics method for differentiating martes zibellina l. heart from its adulterants in traditional chinese medicine based on mitochondrial cytochrome b gene.the use of martes zibellina l. heart as a famous kind of traditional chinese medicine has been documented for many years in china. identification of its authenticity as raw materials became a key in controlling of herbal preparations. in this study, the characteristics of mitochondrial cytochrome b (cyt b) gene from four species of martes were explored, and a specific molecular genetics technique for identifying the heart of m. zibellina l. in addition to some close relatives from their counterf ...201423919324
independent nonframeshift deletions in the mc1r gene are not associated with melanistic coat coloration in three mustelid lineages.sequence variation within the 5' flanking (about 240 bp) and exon regions (426 bp) of the melanocortin-1 receptor (mc1r) gene was examined to determine the potential role of this protein in the melanistic coat coloration of 17 mustelid species in four genera: gulo (wolverines), martes (martens), mustela (weasels), and meles (badgers). members of the genera mustela and meles, together with martes flavigula and martes pennanti, were shown to have intact gene sequences. however, several "in frame" ...200616135707
evolutionary trends of the mitochondrial lineage differentiation in species of genera martes and mustela.we compared partial sequences (402 bp) of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene in 68 individuals of martens (martes), weasels (mustela) and their relatives from the northern hemisphere to identify the modes of geographic differentiation in each species. we then compared complete sequences (1140 bp) of the gene in 17 species of the family mustelidae to know the spatial and temporal modes of speciation, constructing linearized trees with transversional substitutions for deeper lineage divergences a ...200011245219
vagococcus martis sp. nov., isolated from the small intestine of a marten, martes flavigula.a novel coccus-shaped, gram-stain-positive, non-motile and facultative aerobic bacterium, designated strain d7t301t, was isolated from the small intestine of a marten, martes flavigula, which was killed on the road in pocheon-si, gyeonggi-do, republic of korea. grown on a tryptic soy yeast agar plate, colonies had a creamy colour and irregular form. the new isolate formed a monophyletic clade with vagococcus penaei cd276t on a phylogenetic consensus tree based on the 16s rrna gene sequence. the ...201728857031
complete mitochondrial genome of korean yellow-throated marten, martes flavigula (carnivora, mustelidae).the complete mitogenome sequence of martes flavigula, which is an endangered and endemic species in south korea, was determined. the genome is 16,533 bp in length and its gene arrangement pattern, gene content, and gene organization is identical to those of martens. the control region was located between the trnapro and trnaphe genes and is 1087 bp in length. this mitogenome sequence data might be an important role in the preservation of genetic resources by allowing researchers to conduct phylo ...201625264839
the complete mitochondrial genome of martes flavigula.the complete mitogenome sequence of martes flavigula was determined using long pcr. the genome was 16,549 bp in length and contained 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal rna genes, 22 transfer rna genes and 1 control region. the overall base composition of the heavy strand is a (32.48%), c (26.89%), t (26.51%) and g (14.12%). the base compositions present clearly the a-c skew, which is most obvious in the control region and protein-coding genes. the extended termination-associated sequence domai ...201323311393
infections of two isthmiophora species (digenea: echinostomatidae) in wild mammals from republic of korea with their morphological descriptions.isthmiophora hortensis (digenea: echinostomatidae) is a dominant echinostome in animal reservoir hosts and humans in the republic of korea (korea). we intended to investigate the infection status with this echinostome species in the several species of wild animals and describe the morphological characteristics in the faunistic view point. a total of 175 animal carcasses belonging to 3 families, i.e., canidae, felidae and mustelidae, were collected from the southern regions of korea from march 20 ...201931914518
impact of sympatric carnivores on den selection of wild giant pandas.interspecific killing is a primary reason for the low survival rates of some animal species. the giant panda ( ailuropoda melanoleuca) is an altricial eutherian mammal and thus, in comparison to other infants, panda cubs are highly vulnerable, which may significantly influence the selection of breeding sites by females. here, we used infrared camera traps to monitor giant panda dens for 5.5 years in foping national nature reserve (fnnr) to determine how interspecific factors affect den selection ...202032279465
a core set of microsatellite loci for yellow-throated marten, martes flavigula: a case of inferences of family relationships.microsatellite markers are an ideal molecular marker for population genetic studies such as population structure, pedigree, and kinship. the yellow-throated marten (martes flavigula) is widely distributed in coniferous and deciduous forests of eastern asia and plays the role of an indicator and umbrella species in south korea, given the absence of top predators such as tiger and leopard.201931541356
biogeography of korea's top predator, the yellow-throated marten: evolutionary history and population dynamics.peninsulas often harvest high genetic diversity through repeated southward migrations of species during glacial maxima. studies addressing within-species evolutionary responses to climate fluctuations in northeast asia are limited compared to other regions of the world, and more so in the korean peninsula. in this study, we conducted the first population-level study of the yellow-throated marten, martes flavigula, from the korean peninsula, russian, taiwanese and chinese localities in a biogeogr ...201930642240
