Ahmad Enferadi; Abdulghaffar Ownagh; Musa Tavassoli

Volume 15, Issue 2 , February 2024, , Pages 89-95

  Borrelia species are spirochetes transmitted by ticks that are important in human and animals. In most countries, there is still no molecular epidemiology of borreliosis in ruminants. This study was aimed to evaluate the existence of Borrelia spp. DNA in the blood samples of small ruminants using polymerase ...  Read More

Genomic detection of Coxiella burnetii based on plasmid genes in horses

Manizheh Tehrani; Abdulghaffar Ownagh

Volume 14, Issue 6 , June 2023, , Pages 317-322

  Q fever is a worldwide zoonosis caused by an obligate intra-cellular pathogen called Coxiella burnetii affecting a broad range of animal hosts including horses. Most of the isolates found carry plasmids which genetic studies of C. burnetii strains suggest a critical role in C. burnetii survival. The ...  Read More
