Abstract:Canine taeniids are among the major tapeworms with remarkable medical and economic
significance. Reliable diagnosis and differentiation of dog taeniids using simple and
sensitive tools are of paramount importance for establishing an efficient
surveillance system. Microsatellites as abundant unique tandem repeats of short DNA
motifs are useful genetic markers for molecular epidemiological studies. The purpose
of the present study was to find a primer pair for rapid differentiation of major
tapeworms of dogs, Ta… Show more
