Abdybekova, A M; Zhang, Z; Sultanov, A A; Abdibayeva, A A; Zhaksylykova, A A; Junisbayeva, S M; Aubakirov, M Z; Akhmetova, G D; Torgerson, Paul R (2020). Genotypes of Echinococcus isolated from domestic livestock in Kazakhstan. Journal of Helminthology, 94:e69.

Abstract

The diversity and importance of <jats:italic>Echinococcus</jats:italic> species in domesticated animals in Kazakhstan are poorly understood. In this study, 17 cysts of <jats:italic>Echinococcus</jats:italic> were collected from cattle and a further 17 cysts from sheep. DNA was extracted from the individual cysts and used for polymerase chain reaction amplification of mitochondrial subunit 1 of the <jats:italic>cox1</jats:italic> and <jats:italic>nadh1</jats:italic> gene. Amplicon sequencing results revealed the presence of <jats:italic>Echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto</jats:italic> G1 in 15 cattle and 15 sheep, and G3 genotype from two cattle. <jats:italic>Echinococcus canadensis</jats:italic> (G6/G7 strain) was found in two cysts originating from sheep.
