Prevalence, hematological findings and genetic diversity of Bartonella spp. in domestic cats from Valdivia, Southern Chile
The present study determined the prevalence, hematological findings and genetic diversity of Bartonella spp. in domestic cats from Valdivia, Southern Chile. A complete blood count and nuoG gene real-time quantitative PCR ...
Occurrence and molecular characterization of Bartonella spp. and hemoplasmas in neotropical primates from Brazilian Amazon
Little is known about the prevalence and genetic diversity of Bartonella spp. and hemoplasmas in nonhuman primates (NHP). The present study aimed to investigate the occurrence of and assess the phylogenetic position of ...
Molecular characterisation of Bartonella species in cats from Sao Luis, state of Maranhao, north-eastern Brazil
(Fundacão Oswaldo Cruz, 2012-09-01)
Bartonella species are fastidious bacteria that predominantly infect mammalian erythrocytes and endothelial cells and cause long-lasting bacteraemia in their reservoir hosts. Reports that describe the epidemiology of ...
Bartonella vinsonii subsp. berkhoffii and B. henselae in dogs
This study aimed to molecularly survey Bartonella in dogs from Chile. Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) for Bartonella spp. based on nuoG gene was performed in 139 blood samples taken from dogs belonging to rural localities ...
Bartonella clarridgeiae and Bartonella vinsonii subsp berkhoffii exposure in captive wild canids in Brazil
(Cambridge Univ Press, 2015-02-01)
Wild canids are potential hosts for numerous species of Bartonella, yet little research has been done to quantify their infection rates in South America. We sought to investigate Bartonella seroprevalence in captive wild ...
Genetic Diversity of Bartonella spp. in Wild Mammals and Ectoparasites in Brazilian Pantanal
The present work aimed to investigate the genetic diversity of Bartonella in mammals and ectoparasites in Pantanal wetland, Brazil. For this purpose, 31 Nasua nasua, 78 Cerdocyon thous, 7 Leopardus pardalis, 110 wild ...
Ocorrência e caracterização molecular de Bartonella spp. e Mycoplasma spp. em quirópteros amostrados no Brasil
(Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), 2017-02-15)
Doenças transmitidas por vetores artrópodes tem se tornado cada vez mais importantes para a saúde humana e animal. Neste sentido, o papel dos animais selvagens como reservatórios na transmissão destas enfermidades vem sendo ...
Molecular Detection of Bartonella Species in Fleas Collected from Dogs and Cats from Costa Rica
The bacterial genus Bartonella includes several species with zoonotic potential, some of which are common in domestic dogs and cats, as well as in their fleas. Because there is no previous information about the presence ...
