dc.description.abstractNeospora caninum and Hammondia heydorni are morphologically and phylogenetically related coccidians that are found in dogs. New diagnostic genetic loci, based on random-amplified polymorphic DNA-polymerase chain reaction (RAPD-PCR) were developed to aid in the detection of H. heydorni like parasites and to discriminate them from N. caninum and other related coccidians of dogs. On the basis of the data obtained from 5 random decamers, H. heydorni (Manhattan-1) and N. caninum (NC1) were characterized by distinct banding patterns (similarity index = 0.068). High-stringency PCR assays were developed from the sequences of 2 cloned hands (GenBank BZ592549 and BZ592593), uniquely amplified from H. heydorni. Interestingly, using these primers, PCR amplification was achieved only from 2 of the 5 isolates presumed to represent H. heydorni. The same result was obtained From these 5 isolates using a recently described PCR assay directed to the H. heydorni internal transcribed spacer-1. It is concluded that H. heydorni and N. caninum are genetically distinct and that such tools may be useful for more detailed characterization of the diversity of related parasites occurring in dogs.en
