echinoccocus genotype

Hassan Sharifiyazdi, Ahmad Oryan, Sara Ahmadnia, Akbar Valinezhad
In the present study, Echinoccocus granulosus isolates collected from camels (Camelus dromedarius) in eastern Iran were characterized based on the nucleotide sequences of mitochondrial CO1 and NDI genes. The molecular results for camel isolates demonstrated that at least 2 different genotypes are present, i.e., a buffalo genotype (G3) and the camel genotype (G6). Although the sequences of the Iranian camel genotype (G6) are completely homologous to the reference sequence of G6 (M84666) of E. granulosus , a nucleotide mutation (C to T at position 168) was detected in the CO1 sequences of the Iranian G3 isolates (HM626405) when compared with the reference G3 genotype (M84663)...

In the present study, Echinoccocus granulosus isolates collected from human, sheep and camel samples in Iran were characterized based on rostellar hook morphology of protoscoleces as well as PCR-RFLP. Morphological study on human and animal isolates showed the presence of two distinct strains of the parasite, one in sheep and the other one in camels. In this regard, rostellar hook of sheep isolates were significantly different from those of camel origin, meanwhile human isolates were found to be similar to those isolated from sheep...
