Moniezia, Sp is found inside cow intestines slowing down the growth of the cattle

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Cows are the most recognized ruminants in the tropics. Traditionally, ruminant animal feed comes from agricultural waste which is high coarse fiber feed. About 60% to 75% of cattle feed in the form of crude fiber consists of carbohydrates such as cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, and lignin. The pattern of cattle husbandry management in Indonesia has led to a more modern system. Currently, cattle grazing is not only in grasslands but also in landfills (TPA). Cows that are grazed in TPA get their food intake from fermented organic waste, but there are side effects that are not good for the health of cows, especially parasites that live in damp places. This study aimed to identify Moniezia, Sp in the intestines of cattle in Indonesia. This research method is by using PCR, sequencing, and alignment of amino acids using Blast, The amino acid Monieziabenedeni in bovine intestines was analyzed using Swiss Prot software to determine the three-dimensional structure. Prediction of B cell epitope using IEDB software, allergen levels, and toxicity using AllerTop and ToxinPred software. From the results of the research conducted, it was found that Monieziabenedini was found in the intestines of cows. More is needed regarding the characteristics of Monieziabenedini in bovine intestines, especially those related to pathogenesis and potential as a vaccine.
