Increased risk of zoonotic transmission of the potential human pathogenic species Enterocytozoon bieneusi, Encephalitozoon intestinalis and Encephalitozoon cuniculi was detected in wild immunocompetent mice (Mus musculus musculus; n=280). Analysis was conducted with the use of PMP1/PMP2 primers and SYBR Green RT-PCR. Using Real Time PCR and comparing the sequences with sequences in the GenBank, E. bieneusi was detected in 3 samples (1.07 %), E. cuniculi in 1 sample (0.35 %) and E. intestinalis in 1 sample (0.35 %). The results of this report document the low host specificity of detected microsporidia species, and imply the importance of synanthropic rodents as a potential source of human microsporidial infection.
