Case report | 01-December-2019

Molecular analysis of patients with weak D and serologic analysis of those with anti-D (excluding type 1 and type 2)

type 4.2.2, in 1 of 18 with weak D type 11, in 1 of 17 with weak D type 15, and in 1 weak D type 33 individual. Anti-D was demonstrated to be an alloantibody in weak D type 4.0, type 4.2.2, and type 15 individuals, but an autoantibody in weak D type 11 and type 33 individuals. In conclusion, only a complete serologic investigation of individuals with a given weak D type identified by molecular analysis allows concluding on the nature of the antibody. Transfusing weak D type 4.2.2 and type 15

Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Phoma complanata, a New Causal Agent of Archangelica officinalis Hoffm. in Poland

The paper concerns the fungus Phoma complanata, isolated for the first time in Poland, from the roots and umbels of angelica (Archangelica officinalis) in 2009. The morphology of fungal isolates was tested on standard culture media. Moreover, the sequence analysis of ITS regions was conducted. Morphological similarity of P. complanata Polish isolates to the reference isolate obtained from CBS culture collection was determined and together with the molecular analysis confirmed the affiliation of

Alloimmunization to the D antigen by a patient with weak D type 21

Antibodies of apparent D specificity may be found in D+ patients. We report a D+, multi-transfused Caucasian woman with myelodysplasia who exhibited several alloantibodies. One antibody was a moderately strong (2+) anti-D that persisted for 9 months, until the woman died. Molecular analysis of the patient’s RHD gene identified the rare weak D type 21 (938C>T) allele. D alloantibodies do not occur in patients with most weak D types, but some patients with a weak D phenotype, including

(2014) and Hosseinvand et al. (2020) considered it as a valid taxon using molecular analysis. Siddiqi (2000) considered 29 valid species under the genus Bitylenchus. Members of Bitylenchus and Tylenchorhynchus differ in areolated outer bands of lateral fields, a large postanal intestinal sac containing intestinal

Aspergillus penicillioides Speg. Implicated in Keratomycosis

Abstract The aim of the study was mycological examination of ulcerated corneal tissues from an ophthalmic patient. Tissue fragments were analyzed on potato-glucose agar (PDA) and maltose (MA) (Difco) media using standard laboratory techniques. Cultures were identified using classical and molecular methods. Macro- and microscopic colony morphology was characteristic of fungi from the genus Aspergillus (restricted growth series), most probably Aspergillus penicillioides Speg. Molecular analysis

An aberrant specimen of Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Coleoptera: Dryophthoridae) also known as red palm weevil (RPW), the most economically important insect pest of palms in the world, was found among a batch of conspecifics reared for research purposes. A morphological analysis of this weevil revealed the presence of nematodes associated with a structured cuticle defect of the thorax. These nematodes were not able to be cultured, but were characterized by molecular analysis using 28S

Measurements of morphological characters of adult females were similar to N. minor (Colbran) Siddiqi (Decraemer, 1995; Hajihassani et al., 2018a). Due to similar morphometrics of N. minor and closely related species of Nanidorus, a molecular analysis was first performed to confirm the morphological identification by targeting three different regions of the genomic DNA. Briefly, DNA samples were extracted from single stubby-root nematodes (n
