  • species
  • The different species of Brucella are genetically very similar, although each has a slightly different host specificity. (wikipedia.org)
  • People may also be infected by inhalation of contaminated dust or aerosols, and as such, the CDC has labeled Brucella species as highly weaponizable. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Smr15C1 (115 nt) and Smr15C2 (121 nt) homologs are also encoded in tandem within the same IGR region of Rhizobium and Agrobacterium species, whereas in Brucella species the αr15C loci are spread in the IGRs of Chromosome I. Moreover, this analysis also identified a third αr15 loci in extrachromosomal replicons of the mentioned nitrogen-fixing α-proteobacteria and in the Chromosome II of Brucella species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like the red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is nonetheless closely related enough to smaller Canis species, such as the eastern wolf, coyote, and golden jackal, to produce fertile hybrids. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is the only species of Canis to have a range encompassing both the Old and New Worlds, and originated in Eurasia during the Pleistocene, colonizing North America on at least three separate occasions during the Rancholabrean. (wikipedia.org)
  • The thirty-seven subspecies of Canis lupus are listed under the designated common name of "wolf" in Mammal Species of the World third edition that was published in 2005. (wikipedia.org)
  • Wolf hunting is the practice of hunting gray wolves (Canis lupus) or other species of wolves. (wikipedia.org)
  • lupus
  • The gray wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the timber wolf or western wolf, is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. (wikipedia.org)
  • The nominate subspecies is the Eurasian wolf (Canis lupus lupus), also known as the common wolf. (wikipedia.org)
  • The evolution of the wolf occurred over a geologic time scale of 800,000 years, transforming the first Middle Pleistocene wolf specimen that is recognized as being morphologically similar to Canis lupus into today's dog, dingo, and gray wolf. (wikipedia.org)
  • genus
  • The gray wolf is the second most specialised member of the genus Canis, after the Ethiopian wolf, as demonstrated by its morphological adaptations to hunting large prey, its more gregarious nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • Malta
  • During episodes of Malta fever, melitococcemia (presence of brucellae in blood) can usually be demonstrated by means of blood culture in tryptose medium or Albini medium. (wikipedia.org)
  • exposure
  • After exposure to Brucella, humans generally have a two- to four-week latency period before exhibiting symptoms, which include acute undulating fever (>90% of all cases), headache, arthralgia (>50%), night sweats, fatigue, and anorexia. (wikipedia.org)
  • dogs
  • Our findings, although based on a limited sample size and a dearth of clinical details, revealed that dogs in Nigeria may be infected with Brucella spp. (scielo.org.za)
  • It has been diagnosed in dogs in all 48 states of the continental U.S. Ehrlichia canis, which causes canine ehrlichiosis, and Rickettsia rickettsii, which causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever, are both spread by the American dog tick, Dermacentor variabilis, and the brown dog tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineous. (wikipedia.org)
  • B. canis affects dogs. (wikipedia.org)
  • test
  • Recently, PVL added culture option too to enhance the B. canis diagnostic test options. (pavma.org)
  • risk
  • The growth of brucellae is extremely slow (they can take up to two months to grow) and the culture poses a risk to laboratory personnel due to high infectivity of brucellae. (wikipedia.org)
  • specimen
  • The isolation of B. canis from a clinical specimen remains the diagnostic gold standard, but because of intermittent shedding, up to 3 consecutive cultures may be necessary to rule out the disease in suspect animals. (pavma.org)
  • The evolution of the wolf occurred over a geologic time scale of 800,000 years, transforming the first Middle Pleistocene wolf specimen that is recognized as being morphologically similar to Canis lupus into today's dog, dingo, and gray wolf. (wikipedia.org)
  • similar
  • The experiments reported describe the direct recovery of Brucella from macrophages infected in vitro and from the spleens of infected mice at a frequency similar to that described in vitro , suggesting that Brucella dissociation is not simply an in vitro artifact. (frontiersin.org)
  • Wolf
  • The gray wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the timber wolf or western wolf, is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. (wikipedia.org)
  • culture
  • PADLS-Harrisburg now offers both serology and culture tests for B canis detection. (pavma.org)
  • Recently, PVL added culture option too to enhance the B. canis diagnostic test options. (pavma.org)
  • The growth of brucellae is extremely slow (they can take up to two months to grow) and the culture poses a risk to laboratory personnel due to high infectivity of brucellae. (wikipedia.org)
