A unique anisakid roundworm, Rotundocollarette capoori n. gen., n.sp. infesting Johnius dussumieri from the Central West coast of India at Goa has been described. The worms are typically characterized by a cephalic collarette, a muscular collarette in post-caudal zone, intestinal caecum and a ventricular appendix. 3 pores, a part of cephalic infras...
Article
Energy Dispersive X-Ray Microanalysis has been used as the non-invasive technique on Indian helminthes to explore the role of nematode parasites as bioindicators in the marine ecosystem of Central West coast of India for the first time. The accumulation of sulphur and iron were analysed from a raphidascaridoid roundworm, Rostellascaris spinicaudatu...
Chapter
Helminth bioindicator species possess the potential to forecast forthcoming events of diseases in aquatic ecosystems, freshwater as well as marine, in India. Neascus vetestai was projected to be the digenean causative larval organism, the manifestation of which was externally identifiable, as one of the rare cases by which the presence of a digenea...
Chapter
Fish turned out to be an important host to a varied range of taxonomically diverse parasites that exhibit a wide variety of life cycles. Whereas many of these parasites are passed directly between ultimate hosts, others need to find the way through a series of intermediate hosts before reaching a target host in which they can inhabit for attaining...

Energy Dispersive X-Ray Microanalysis (EDXMA) has been used as the non-invasive technique on Indian helminthes to explore the role of nematode parasites as bioindicators in the marine ecosystem of Central West coast of India for the first time. The investigation incorporates assertions on the possible benefit of such technology to elucidate bioreme...
Chapter
Entomopathogenic infections by protozoans predominantly, the microsporidians, are of paramount significance in being ineradicable that caused subtle pathologies to induce reproductive productivity decline and shortening of life spans. These have been considered incredibly fit as long-term regulators of pests for effective checks of disease outbreak...
Article
The helminth parasites possess great capabilities to adapt themselves within their hosts and also develop strategies to render the commonly used anthelmintics ineffective leading to the development of resistance against these drugs. Besides using anthelmintics the natural products have also been tested for their anti-parasitic effects. Therapeutic...

Real-time PCR coupled with high-resolution molecular (HRM) analysis was conducted to target the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2) of nuclear ribosomal DNA. The latter acted as a genetic marker to identify and distinguish two anisakid and one cucullanid species parasitizing marine and freshwater fish. Unique and distinct characteristics of...

According to an estimate, the chronic infections caused by certain pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites contribute to about 18% of the global burden of cancer; helminth infections attributing to only small part of it. Carcinogenesis associated with the helminth infections induced development of cancer is a complicated event invo...

Article
Anisakidosis is one of the most fearsome zoonotic food borne disease in aquaculture. The natural infections by anisakidoids or related variety in freshwater fish are not known, though sporadic experimental reports are available abroad (Butcher and Shamsi 2011). Invasive severity of anisakidoids in fish from Gangetic riverine ecosystems, i.e., in ri...

Three keys to the species of Neolebouria Gibson, 1976, representing three body types, are provided based on the location of the genital pore relative to the intestinal bifurcation. These are: the lanceolata body type, where the genital pore is clearly prebifurcal; the diacopae body type, where the genital pore is located at or near the level of the...

Neolebouria capoori n. sp. (Opecoelidae: Plagioporinae) is described from the whitecheek monocle bream, Scolopsis vosmeri (Bloch) (Perciformes: Nemipteridae) from the Panjim coast on the central west coast of India at Goa. The new species differs from both Neolebouria cantherhini (Li, Qiu & Zhang, 1988) as originally described from Thamnaconus mode...

A new endoparasitic fluke, Cephalogonimus yamunii n.sp. is described from the intestine of freshwater fish Xenentodon cancilla (Belonidae). The worms could be differentiated from C. amphiumae (Chandler 1932), C. apognichthysi (Gupta and Puri 1982), C. hanumanthai (Agrawal and Agarwal 1984), C. salamandrus (Dronen and Lang 1974), C. simhai (Singh 20...

To assess the effect of physicochemical factors of marine water on the bioecology of parasitic helminthes in the deep sea fish.
Article
Molecular characterization and validation of Senga gangesii published by Gairola and Malhotra (1986a) by DNA barcode structure of the bothriocephalidean tapeworm comprising information on mit coi and 18S rRNA have been undertaken further to elaborate morphological analysis on SEM illustrations from fresh collections in the sub-humid region. The fre...

The investigations include report of two new worms from marine fishes of Central West Coast of Goa in Arabian Sea. A trematode, Pedunculacetabulum spinatum n.sp. from Chorinemus mandetta and Wenyonia rhincodoni n.sp. from sharks, Rhincodon typus have been described and compared with closer species. The systematics of genus Pedunculacetabulum Yamagu...
Article
Molecular taxonomy methods were used to establish differentiation of Barcode structure of marine Anisakids, Iheringascaris goai n.sp. with phylogeny of the newly described nematodes from deep sea fishes.
Article
The report is on molecular heterogeneity of anisakid nematodes from marine fishes of central west coast of India at Goa.
Article
The barcode structure of anisakid-gnathostomatoid type of nematodes has been analysed to understand their phylogeny and interrelationship with Physalopteroid worms.
Article
A new nematode Pseudaspidodera cordinae n.sp. has been described and figured from rodents at Allahabad.

Article
A significant negative interrelationship existed between soil salinity and density of a variety of nematodes viz.Helicotylenchus indicus,Hoplolaimus indicus,Longidorus sp.,Tylenchorhynchus brevilineatus,Tylenchus sp. andTrichodorus sp. The trend was more evident during summer (May—June) period (at upto 33°C) indicating adverse influence of the comb...

G. bengalensis Woodland, 1924, G. hanumanthai Seth & Capoor, 1982 and G sanehensis Malhotra et al., 1981. The study was conducted in a sub-humid region around Allahabad, India. The implications of amino acid utilization...
Article
Chemotaxonomic patterns in the distribution of amino acids of Hymenolepis palmarum (Johri, 1956) and other hymenolepidids revealed the common presence of beta-aminoisobutyric acid, lysine, phenylalanine and tyrosine but 3,4 dihydroxyphenylalanine and norleucine were exclusive to H. palmarum. Both qualitative and quantitative differences in amino ac...

Twelve amino acids were detected in six davaineid cestodes, Davainea hewetensis Dhawan & Capoor (1972) collected from one Gallus gallus domesticus L. at Allahabad, India. Chemotaxonomic studies within the family Davaineidae have shown the presence of cystine and hydroxyproline only in D. hewetensis, although phenylalanine and proline occur in all s...
