ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The study of parasite diversity not only helps to estimate the diversity of organisms but also help to address question related to host specificity and coevolution. Hepatozoonosis, is an enzootic disease caused by several species of  Hepatozoon, a genus in the phylum Apicomplexa. Hepatozoon  infect wide variety of domestic and  wild animals. The present pilot  study was aimed to screen the common herpatofauna  namely garden and wall lizard for the presence of Hepatozoon species using DNA based markers specific for 18S rRNA region. The findings of this study confirms the occurrence of Hepatozoon in garden and wall lizard using  HepF300 and HepR900 primers targeted for ~800 bp of 18S rRNA gene. The study also highlights the need to screen more taxa for the occurrence of this parasite in both domestic and wild species to understand parasetemia caused by Apicomplexan species.


Key words : Apicomplexan, Hepatozoon, herpatofauna, 18S rRNA
