A comparison of the presence of Theileria ovis by PCR amplification of their SSU rRNA gene in small ruminants from two provinces of Pakistan.
Experimental transmission of Theileria ovis by Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum.
The molecular characterization of positive samples through 18S ribosomal RNA revealed the presence of Theileria lestoquardi and Theileria ovis in the infected animals.
PCR-based detection of Theileria ovis in Rhipicephalus bursa adult ticks.
Ticks and Tick-borne diseases caused annual loss of USS 7000million throughout the world.Two Theileria species Theileria ovis and Theileria lestoquardi are responsible for ovine theileriosis in Pakistan.
Theileria ovis infection was identified significant (p 0.05) in different age groups of sheep.
The other species, Theileria ovis
, Theileria recondita and Theileria separata cause subclinical infection in small ruminants (Alani and Herbert, 1988).
