Interspecific play between free ranging guerezas (Colobus guereza) and vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops
In this regard, it is interesting that no zoonotic infections due to the two viruses most closely related to BV, HVP2 of baboons (Papio spp.) and SA8 of vervets (Cercopithecus aethiops
), have been reported (with one probable exception ).
Pathology of experimental pneumonic plague produced by fraction 1-positive and fraction 1-negative Yersinia pestis in African green monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops
Chlorocebus aethiops, formerly known as Cercopithecus aethiops
, is commonly referred to as the African green monkey, vervet, tantulus, savannah, or the grivet monkey.
The commercial Vero cell line (Vero ATCC[R] CCL-81[TM]) was obtained from African Green Monkey's (Cercopithecus aethiops
) kidney and maintained in RPMI (Roswell Park Memorial Institute) medium supplemented with penicillin G (100UI m[L.sup.-1]), streptomycin (100mg/mL) and 10% fetal equine serum.
Genomic DNA was isolated using a standard protocol from heparinized blood samples from the following species: (1) Hominoid: chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) and gorilla (Gorilla gorilla); (2) Old world monkey: rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta), cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis), African green monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops
), colobus (Procolobus badius), and langur (Trachypithecus cristatus); (3) New world monkey: marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus), and night monkey (Aotus trivirgatus); (4) Strepsirrhini: ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta).
The extensor digiti V proprius described in Cercopithecus aethiops
and Cercopithecus talapoin is divided into two muscles that supply the digits IV and V (Aziz & Dunlap).
Seroprevalence of ZIKV has been demonstrated in Old World non-human primates of the Cercopithecus genus (Guenons), including Cercopithecus aethiops
(African green monkey), Cercopithecus ascanis schmidti (Red-tailed monkey), Cercopithecus mona denti (Mona monkey), and Cercopithecus albigena johnstoni and also the Colobus genus (Colobus abyssincius, Mantled guereza) (22).
Sudden short-term increase in Mortality of Vervet Monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops
) due to leopard predation in Amboseli National Park, Kenya.
Cell culture cytotoxic assays were performed in Vero cells (Cercopithecus aethiops
green monkey kidney epithelial cell line; ATCC CCL-81) grown in Eagle's minimal essential medium (EMEM) (Gibco, USA), supplemented with 10% (v/v) heat-inactivated fetal calf serum (FCS, Natocor, Argentina), glutamine (30 mg/mL), and gentamicin (50mg/mL) (Sigma-Aldrich, Italy).

)" in The American Naturalist 129, no.
Further studies need to be carried out using non-human primates such as vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops
) to confirm whether the extract can be as effective in these primates for future use to treat the leishmaniases.
