Theileria luwenshuni

Description

The TheLuw dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Theileria luwenshuni detection by using qPCR. Theileria luwenshuni is a protozoan blood parasite which belongs to the Theileria genus.  This parasite is capable of affecting small rumiants such as goats and sheep, as well as cervids.

The transmission of this parasite occurs through the bite of infected ticks. This leads to the formation of schizonts within the cytoplasm of host lymphocytes, where asexual division takes place. Meanwhile, sexual reproduction occurs in the gut of the tick vector. T. luwenshuni has been identified in various locations, including China, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, and northern Spain. Clinical manifestations associated with acute or fatal theileriosis include purulent nasal discharge, pneumonia, ataxia, dyspnea, fever, anemia, serous nasal discharge, swelling of eyelids, ears, and jowls, along with pneumonia.
