complete mitochondrial genomes of diplogonoporus balaenopterae and diplogonoporus grandis (cestoda: diphyllobothriidae) and clarification of their taxonomic relationships.although the diplogonadic human tapeworm, diplogonoporus grandis, has long been considered to be a synonym of the whale tapeworm, diplogonoporus balaenopterae, the identity of the both species at the complete mitochondrial genomes and nuclear dna levels has been not sufficiently undertaken to date. in the present study, to clarify the taxonomic relationships between d. balaenopterae and d. grandis at the molecular level, the complete mitochondrial genomes of both species were sequenced and compa ...201122079238
diplogonoporiasis in japan: genetic analyses of five clinical isolates.infection of the whale tapeworm diplogonoporus balaenopterae (diphyllobothriidae) is occasionally found in humans, especially among japanese. in the present study, we analysed the nucleotide sequences of the 18s rdna, its1 and cox1 genes of the immature and mature proglottids of diplogonoporus species recovered from five japanese patients. the nucleotide sequences of 18s rdna, its1 and cox1 showed little, if any, intraspecific divergence. phylogenetic analyses of several diphyllobothriid species ...200817980651
complete sequence and characterization of the mitochondrial genome of diphyllobothrium stemmacephalum, the type species of genus diphyllobothrium (cestoda: diphyllobothriidae), using next generation sequencing.we first constructed and characterized the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) sequence of diphyllobothrium stemmacephalum, the type species of genus diphyllobothrium, using next generation sequencing (ngs). the mitogenome of d. stemmacephalum was 13,716bp, including 12 protein-coding genes, 22 trna genes, 2 rrna genes and 2 longer intergenic non-coding regions, and has features common to mitogenomes of other cestodes. although it has been accepted that trna for serine (trns2(ucn)) in pla ...201728647499
the catholic taste of broad tapeworms - multiple routes to human infection.broad tapeworms (cestoda: diphyllobothriidea) are the principal agents of widespread food-borne cestodosis. diphyllobothriosis and diplogonoporosis, caused by members of the genera diphyllobothrium, diplogonoporus and adenocephalus, are the most common fish cestodoses with an estimated 20million people infected worldwide, and has seen recent (re)emergences in europe due to the increasing popularity of eating raw or undercooked fish. sparganosis is a debilitating and potentially lethal disease ca ...201728780153
first confirmed human case of diphyllobothrium stemmacephalum infection and molecular verification of the synonymy of diphyllobothrium yonagoense with d. stemmacephalum (cestoda: diphyllobothriidea).several tapeworm species in the genus diphyllobothrium cobbold, 1858 have uncertain taxonomic positions, leading to taxonomic confusion as well as misdiagnosis of infections. taxonomic revision based on dna sequence analysis is considered necessary to resolve the taxonomy of several cases, including that between diphyllobothrium stemmacephalum, the type species of the genus, and diphyllobothrium yonagoense. diphyllobothrium yonagoense was synonymized with d. stemmacephalum based on morphological ...201627266483
rapid identification of nine species of diphyllobothriidean tapeworms by pyrosequencing.the identification of diphyllobothriidean tapeworms (cestoda: diphyllobothriidea) that infect humans and intermediate/paratenic hosts is extremely difficult due to their morphological similarities, particularly in the case of diphyllobothrium and spirometra species. a pyrosequencing method for the molecular identification of pathogenic agents has recently been developed, but as of yet there have been no reports of pyrosequencing approaches that are able to discriminate among diphyllobothriidean ...201627853295
