Abstract:

Considering increasing reports of bovine tropical theileriosis from various parts of northern India and the impact of this disease to sustainable livestock production, the present study was carried out with the objective of understanding the genetic characterization of Theileria annulata based on Tams1 gene sequence analysis. Six different isolates of T. annulata from four districts of northern India namely Nainital (two isolates- Nainital_31 and Nainital_255), UdhamSinghNagar (two isolates- UdhamSinghNagar_1 and UdhamSinghNagar_314) and one isolate each from Dehradun, and Pithoragarh were included in the study. The sequence analysis of the partial Tams1 gene obtained from different regions selected for the study revealed high level of diversity between regions and within the region. The partial Tams1 gene sequences of different isolates when subjected to phylogenetic analysis revealed that the UdhamSinghNagar_314 and Pithoragarh isolates originated from similar ancestor whereas Dehradun and UdahmSinghNagar_1 had a different ancestral lineage.
