Genetic characterization of the Asian Taenia, a newly described taeniid
cestode of humans.
During 2012-2016, we identified 179 proglottid samples (161 diphyllobothriids and 18 taeniids
) using molecular methods (Table); restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis with PCR-amplified cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) gene fragment (249-bp long corresponding to base pairs 880-1128) was introduced to confirm diphyllobothriid species (18-20) and PCR-amplified cox1 sequencing (145-bp long corresponding to base pairs 641-785) was used for identification of taeniid
The particularity of some Taeniid
metacestodes to reproduce asexually is used in biological models.
Rapid molecular identification of human taeniid
cestodes by pyrosequencing approach.
Exogenous proliferation in a larval taeniid
(Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) obtained from the body cavity of Peruvian rodents.
Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a cyclozoonosis caused by the larval stage of the taeniid
cestode Echinococcus granulosus.
2010: Fact of hypothesis: concomitant immunity in taeniid
sp., a taeniid
cestode from Tibetan fox and plateau pika in China," International Journal for Parasitology, vol.
Cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (cox1) genes of mitochondrial DNA have been commonly used for studying phylogenetic relationships among taeniid
With the advent of agriculture and of life lived in close proximity to domesticated animals, bacterial as well as helminth parasitism, caused by such as Enterobius vermicularis, Trichuris trichiura, Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichostrongylus sp., Strongyloides sp., taeniid
and hymenolepidid cestodes, became prevalent (42).
"Traditionally, scientists believed that about 10,000 years ago--coincidental with the domestication of intermediate hosts such as cattle, swine, and companion carnivores like dogs--three species of taeniid
tapeworms became associated with humans," Hoberg says.
(+) Efficacy for intestinal helminths: A = ascarids (Toxocara and Toxascaris spp.); H = hookworms(Ancylostoma and Uncinaria spp); W = whipworms (Trichuis vulpis); T = Taeniid
tapeworms; D = Flea Tapeworms (Dipylidium canimum); E = Echinococcus granulosus
