An attempt to use polymerase chain reaction for the detection of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum






Bangladesh Veterinary Journal 30(1/2): 27-33

An attempt to use polymerase chain reaction for the detection of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum

The PCR has been established as highly sensitive and specific for identification of the Toxoplasma genome (B1 gene). This work aimed to improve DNA purification methods from T. gondii tachyzoites and tissue specimens for amplification. No difference was observed in the results of electrophoresis of the extracted DNA samples with or without RNAase in tachyzoite samples.
