Molecular detection of Anaplasmataceae agents in Dasyprocta azarae in northeastern Brazil

Hunting has occurred over millions of years and only limits the population near large human activity centers. This page was last edited on 8 Februaryat Recently, the importance of wild-living rodents for maintenance of pathogens of the family Anaplasmataceae in the environment was investigated.

Unfortunately, attempts to make additional phylogenetic inferences based on genes rather than 16S were unsuccessful, thus corroborating the results found by Benevenute et al. J Clin Microbiol ; 37 BMC Dasyporcta ; 11 1: Three out of four positive amplicons were subjected to sequencing based on a high-intensity band that was observed on agarose gel.


Hearing a predator moving through the forest is the number one defense against animals and humans that are looking for a meal.

You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Hunting for food is also a major source of mortality in areas where there is a high human population Biota Neotropical.
