Abstract

The ITS1 sequences for C. suis, C. belli, C. rivolta, C. felis, and C. ohioensis-like oocysts were determined and a diagnostic PCR-RFLP assay specific for Cystosisopora species was developed. Phylogenetic analysis of ITS1 sequences of Cystosisopora species along with ITS1 sequences for Toxoplasma, Neospora, Sarcocystis and Eimeria spp. using distance, minimum evolution and parsimony-based methods confirmed previous studies, which suggested that the genus Cystoisospora does not belong to the family Eimeriidae, but should be classified together with the cyst-forming coccidia in the family Sarcocystidae.
