Technical Abstract: Avian coccidiosis is caused by multiple species of the apicomplexan protozoan, Eimeria, and is one of the most economically devastating enteric diseases for the poultry industry worldwide. Host immunity to Eimeria infection, however, is relatively species-specific. The ability to immunize chickens against different species of Eimeria using a single vaccine will have a major beneficial impact on commercial poultry production. Availability of Eimeria tenella Elongation Factor 1-alpha sequence to public database would help scientific community understand molecular pathogenesis and provide further insight in future vaccine design to control Coccidiosis.
