Abe N. Molecular and phylogenetic analysis of Blastocystis isolates from various hosts. Vet Parasitol. 2004;120:235-42 pubmed
..These results indicate that many of the isolates harboring in animals have zoonotic potential, or have cross-transmissibility among heterogeneous hosts. ..
Abe N, Takami K, Kimata I, Iseki M. Molecular characterization of a Cryptosporidium isolate from a banded mongoose Mungos mungo. J Parasitol. 2004;90:167-71 pubmed
..Analyses showed that the mongoose isolate represents a new genotype, closely related to that of bears. ..
Abe N, Wu Z, Yoshikawa H. Molecular characterization of Blastocystis isolates from primates. Vet Parasitol. 2003;113:321-5 pubmed
..However, it was unclear whether the isolates examined were zoonotic or not. Therefore, it is necessary to reveal the phylogenetic relationships between the isolates from primates and the multiple genotypes of B. hominis. ..

..Among the 26 isolates, 24 were identified as A. simplex sensu stricto, the other two as A. pegreffii. The present study is the first to confirm the distribution of A. pegreffii in Japan, and to detect A. pegreffii larvae in Pacific cod. ..

..parvum 60-kDa glycoprotein gene (GP60) and showed the new subgenotype in a raccoon dog isolate. This study suggested that C. parvum cattle genotype might be composed of zoonotic and host-specific multiple subgenotypes. ..

..It is unclear whether the isolates examined in the present study are zoonotic or not. Therefore, it is important to determine the phylogenetic relationships between unknown genotypes from birds and the multiple genotypes of B. hominis...
