2008 journal article

Cytauxzoon felis infections are present in bobcats (Lynx rufus) in a region where cytauxzoonosis is not recognized in domestic cats

VETERINARY PARASITOLOGY, 153(1-2), 126–130.

By: A. Birkenheuer n, H. Marr n, C. Warren n, A. Acton n, E. Mucker*, J. Humphreys*, M. Tucker n

author keywords: cytauxzoonosis; piroplasmosis; Cytauxzoon felis; bobcats; PCR; tick
MeSH headings : Animals; Cat Diseases / epidemiology; Cat Diseases / parasitology; Cats; Eukaryota / classification; Eukaryota / isolation & purification; Lynx / parasitology; North Carolina / epidemiology; Pennsylvania / epidemiology; Protozoan Infections, Animal / epidemiology; Protozoan Infections, Animal / parasitology
TL;DR: This study indicates the potential for C. felis infections in domestic cats in the northeastern USA if the appropriate tick vectors are present and Veterinary practitioners in PA should be on alert for cytauxzoonosis in domestic Cats. (via Semantic Scholar)

The identification of a genetically unique piroplasma in North American river otters (Lontra canadensis)

PARASITOLOGY, 134(5), 631–635.

By: A. Birkenheuer n, C. Harms n, J. Neel n, H. Marr n, M. Tucker n, A. Acton n, A. Tuttle n, M. Stoskopf n

Contributors: A. Birkenheuer n, C. Harms n, J. Neel n, H. Marr n, M. Tucker n, A. Acton n, A. Tuttle n, M. Stoskopf n

author keywords: Babesia; North American river otter; PCR; phylogenetics
MeSH headings : Animals; Babesia / genetics; Babesia / isolation & purification; Base Sequence; Molecular Sequence Data; North America; Otters / parasitology; Phylogeny; RNA, Protozoan / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Rivers
TL;DR: It is indicated that the prevalence of piroplasma in North Carolina otters is quite high and the pathogenic potential of this organism for otters or other species remains unknown. (via Semantic Scholar)
