Abstract:Neospora caninum-like organisms were found in histologic sections of spinal cord of 4 paralyzed calves as reported by Parish et al. (1987). Tachyzoites divided by endodyogeny. Tissue cysts were up to 62 microns wide and the cyst wall was up to 2.5 microns thick. The organism in calves was structurally distinct from Toxoplasma gondii and Sarcocystis species and reacted positively with anti-N. caninum serum in an immunoperoxidase test.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
