Detection of Candidatus Mycoplasma haemobos in cattle with anaemia


Hoelzle, K; Winkler, M; Kramer, M; Wittenbrink, M M; Dieckmann, S M; Hoelzle, L E (2011). Detection of Candidatus Mycoplasma haemobos in cattle with anaemia. Veterinary Journal, 187(3):408-410.

Abstract

Haemotrophic mycoplasmas are unculturable eperythrocytic pathogens that are found in a wide range of domestic and wild animals. In this study an outbreak of haemotrophic mycoplasmosis in cattle herds in Northern Germany is reported. Affected animals exhibited anaemia and depression and infection was confirmed following microscopic examination of blood smears and on PCR. Sequence analysis indicated that in addition to infection with Mycoplasma wenyonii, animals were infected with a novel bovine haemotrophic mycoplasma Candidatus Mycoplasma haemobos.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
