Tritrichomonas

(trī-trik'ō-mō'nas),
A genus of parasitic protozoan flagellates, formerly part of the genus Trichomonas but now separated as a distinct genus by the absence of a pelta and the presence of three anterior flagella. Species include Tritrichomonas foetus, which causes bovine trichomoniasis, and Tritrichomonas suis, which occurs in the nasal passages, stomach, cecum, and colon of pigs.
See also: Trichomonas.
[G. tri-, three, + Trichomonas]

En el nordeste argentino existen otras enfermedades infecciosas que afectan al ganado bovino, para las cuales aun no se cuenta con suficientes datos sobre sus efectos en el ganado bubalino, tal el caso de las denominadas enfermedades venereas, producidas por Campylobacter fetus y Tritrichomonas foetus. Ya se han realizado los primeros muestreos en machos de rodeos ubicados en las provincias de Corrientes, Chaco y Formosa (Argentina), cuyos resultados indican la probabilidad de un muy bajo impacto sanitario.
venerealis, Chlamydophila abortus, Leptospira sp., Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella sp., Mycoplasma bovis, Mycoplasma bovigenitalium, Neospora caninum, and Tritrichomonas foetus. PCR reactions were performed using 13 [micro]L of a commercial PCR mix (PCR Supermix, Invitrogen, USA), 0.75 [micro]L of a 25gM solution of each primer (Table 1), and 1 [micro]L of DNA (100 to 500ng per reaction).
