A class of Arthropoda that includes SPIDERS; TICKS; MITES; and SCORPIONS.
Members of the class Arachnida, especially SPIDERS; SCORPIONS; MITES; and TICKS; which transmit infective organisms from one host to another or from an inanimate reservoir to an animate host.
Arthropods of the class ARACHNIDA, order Araneae. Except for mites and ticks, spiders constitute the largest order of arachnids, with approximately 37,000 species having been described. The majority of spiders are harmless, although some species can be regarded as moderately harmful since their bites can lead to quite severe local symptoms. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, p508; Smith, Insects and Other Arthropods of Medical Importance, 1973, pp424-430)
Members of the phylum Arthropoda, composed of organisms having a hard, jointed exoskeleton and paired jointed legs. It includes the class INSECTS and the subclass ARACHNIDA, many species of which are important medically as parasites or as vectors of organisms capable of causing disease in man.
Arthropods of the order Scorpiones, of which 1500 to 2000 species have been described. The most common live in tropical or subtropical areas. They are nocturnal and feed principally on insects and other arthropods. They are large arachnids but do not attack man spontaneously. They have a venomous sting. Their medical significance varies considerably and is dependent on their habits and venom potency rather than on their size. At most, the sting is equivalent to that of a hornet but certain species possess a highly toxic venom potentially fatal to humans. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Smith, Insects and Other Arthropods of Medical Importance, 1973, p417; Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, p503)
DNA molecules capable of autonomous replication within a host cell and into which other DNA sequences can be inserted and thus amplified. Many are derived from PLASMIDS; BACTERIOPHAGES; or VIRUSES. They are used for transporting foreign genes into recipient cells. Genetic vectors possess a functional replicator site and contain GENETIC MARKERS to facilitate their selective recognition.
The relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their genetic makeup.
Insects that transmit infective organisms from one host to another or from an inanimate reservoir to an animate host.
Invertebrates or non-human vertebrates which transmit infective organisms from one host to another.

Development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. (1/384)

Studies were made on the development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of the larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Six hr after repletion, merozoites of B. gibsoni, freed from erythrocytes, were observed in the midgut contents of the tick. After that, within 24 hr, those merozoites were transformed into the ring-forms which were relatively large, 2-3 microns in diameter. Later, the ring forms developed into the spherical forms which were subelliptical in shape and 4-6 microns in diameter. Within 2-4 days, the elongated forms, 5-8 microns in length, were found. At this time, some of the binucleated fusion form has assumed a form intermediate between the spherical and elongated-forms. About 5-6 days after repletion, large round or elliptic zygotes, 8-10 microns in diameter, were observed in the tick gut.  (+info)

Development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of the nymphal stage of the tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. (2/384)

Studies were made on the development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of the nymphal stage of the tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Six hr after repletion, merozoites of B. gibsoni, free of erythrocytes, were observed in the midgut contents of the ticks. After that, within 24 hr, those merozoites were transformed into ring-forms which were relatively large ring 1-2 microns in diameter. Later, the ring forms developed into spherical forms which were somewhat elliptical in shape and 3-4 microns in diameter. Within 2-4 days, bizarre forms (5-6 microns in diameter) developed into elongated forms (5-6 microns in length). About 5-6 days after repletion, large round or elliptic zygotes (7-9 microns in diameter) were observed in the ticks gut.  (+info)

Inhibition of Borrelia burgdorferi migration from the midgut to the salivary glands following feeding by ticks on OspC-immunized mice. (3/384)

Borrelia burgdorferi-infected ticks were fed on either OspC-immunized mice or normal, nonimmunized mice. After 72 h, the ticks were detached, followed by dissection and subsequent culturing in Barbour-Stoenner-Kelley II medium of the salivary glands from each tick to determine the presence of borreliae. Forty percent (10 of 25) of salivary glands from ticks that had fed on nonimmunized mice were culture positive, while only 7.4% (2 of 27) of salivary glands from ticks that had fed on OspC-immunized mice were culture positive, thus indicating a much reduced borrelial migration from the midgut when the bloodmeal contained anti-OspC antibodies. Fluorescent antibody staining of the corresponding midguts from ticks that had fed on the OspC-immunized mice showed that borreliae were present but did not produce OspC. In contrast, borreliae in midguts from ticks that had fed on normal mice demonstrated substantial ospC expression. This study provides evidence that, during tick feeding on an OspC-immunized host, transmission of borreliae from the tick is prevented; it also suggests that OspC functions in a tick-to-host transmission mechanism.  (+info)

Prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in Ixodes ricinus ticks (Acari, Ixodidae) in different Polish woodlands. (4/384)

In 1996-1998, a total of 2285 Ixodes ricinus ticks (1063 nymphs, 637 males, 585 females) were collected from vegetation from 25 different localities in the 8 Polish provinces throughout the country. Ticks inhabited all 25 collection sites. The average number of ticks per collection site was 91.4 +/- 13.7. All 2285 ticks were examined for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) presence, of which 1333 specimens from 3 provinces were tested by routine indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) using polyclonal antibody PAB 1B29. The remaining 952 specimens from 5 provinces were examined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), using FL6 and FL7 primers. The overall infection rate in ticks estimated by these 2 methods was 10. 2%. Nymphs showed lower positivity rate (6.2%) as compared to adult ticks (14.9% in females and 12.4% in males). The highest percentage of infected I. ricinus ticks (37.5%) was noted in the Katowice province while the lowest (4.1%) in the Bia ystok province. In particular collection sites, infection rates varied from 0-37.5%. The obtained results confirmed that B. burgdorferi s.l. is present throughout the distributional areas of I. ricinus in Poland and that a prevalence of spirochete-infected ticks may be high in some locations.  (+info)

Experimental infection of ponies with Borrelia burgdorferi by exposure to Ixodid ticks. (5/384)

Seven specific-pathogen-free (SPF) ponies, 1-5 years old, were exposed to Borrelia burgdorferi-infected adult ticks while being treated with dexamethasone over 5 consecutive days. One SPF pony (pony No. 178) was first exposed to laboratory-reared nymphs without B. burgdorferi infection and 3 weeks later was exposed to B. burgdorferi-infected adult ticks with concurrent dexamethasone treatment for 5 consecutive days. Four uninfected ponies treated with dexamethasone, exposed to laboratory-reared ticks without B. burgdorferi infection served as uninfected controls. Clinical signs, bacteriologic culture, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for bacterial DNA, immunologic responses, and gross lesions and histopathologic changes were investigated during the experiment or at necropsy 9 months after tick exposure. In all of the seven challenged ponies, infection with B. burgdorferi was detected from monthly skin biopsies and various tissues at postmortem examination by culture and by PCR. However, pony No. 178 exposed to laboratory-reared nymphs (without B. burgdorferi infection) and challenged with B. burgdorferi-infected adult ticks 2 months later did not develop a B. burgdorferi infection. All of the infected ponies seroconverted. Control ponies and pony No. 178 were negative by culture, PCR, and serology. Except for skin lesions, we failed to induce any significant histopathologic changes in this study. This is the first report of successful tick-induced experimental infection in ponies by exposure to B. burgdorferi-infected ticks. This Lyme disease model will be very useful to evaluate efficacy of vaccines against the Lyme agent and the effect of antibiotic therapy on horses infected with B. burgdorferi.  (+info)

Impact of climatic change on the northern latitude limit and population density of the disease-transmitting European tick Ixodes ricinus. (6/384)

We examined whether a reported northward expansion of the geographic distribution limit of the disease-transmitting tick Ixodes ricinus and an increased tick density between the early 1980s and mid-1990s in Sweden was related to climatic changes. The annual number of days with minimum temperatures above vital bioclimatic thresholds for the tick's life-cycle dynamics were related to tick density in both the early 1980s and the mid-1990s in 20 districts in central and northern Sweden. The winters were markedly milder in all of the study areas in the 1990s as compared to the 1980s. Our results indicate that the reported northern shift in the distribution limit of ticks is related to fewer days during the winter seasons with low minimum temperatures, i.e., below -12 degrees C. At high latitudes, low winter temperatures had the clearest impact on tick distribution. Further south, a combination of mild winters (fewer days with minimum temperatures below -7 degrees C) and extended spring and autumn seasons (more days with minimum temperatures from 5 to 8 degrees C) was related to increases in tick density. We conclude that the relatively mild climate of the 1990s in Sweden is probably one of the primary reasons for the observed increase of density and geographic range of I. ricinus ticks.  (+info)

Detection of the agent of heartwater, Cowdria ruminantium, in Amblyomma ticks by PCR: validation and application of the assay to field ticks. (7/384)

We have previously reported that the pCS20 PCR detection assay for Cowdria ruminantium, the causative agent of heartwater disease of ruminants, is more sensitive than xenodiagnosis and the pCS20 DNA probe for the detection of infection in the vector Amblyomma ticks. Here, we further assessed the reliability of the PCR assay and applied it to field ticks. The assay detected DNA of 37 isolates of C. ruminantium originating from sites throughout the distribution of heartwater and had a specificity of 98% when infected ticks were processed concurrently with uninfected ticks. The assay did not detect DNA of Ehrlichia chaffeensis, which is closely related to C. ruminantium. PCR sensitivity varied with tick infection intensity and was high (97 to 88%) with ticks bearing 10(7) to 10(4) organisms but dropped to 61 and 28%, respectively, with ticks bearing 10(3) and 10(2) organisms. The assay also detected C. ruminantium in collections of Amblyomma hebraeum and Amblyomma variegatum field ticks from 17 heartwater-endemic sites in four southern African countries. Attempts at tick transmission of infection to small ruminants failed with four of these collections. The pCS20 PCR assay is presently the most characterized and reliable test for C. ruminantium in ticks and thus is highly useful for field and laboratory epidemiological investigations of heartwater.  (+info)

Crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever: a seroepidemiological and tick survey in the Sultanate of Oman. (8/384)

In 1995 and 1996, 4 persons from the Sultanate of Oman were confirmed with clinical Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF). To assess the prevalence of CCHF virus infection in Oman, a convenience sample of imported and domestic animals from farms, abattoirs and livestock markets was examined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to CCHF virus. Ticks were collected from selected animals, identified, pooled by species, host and location and tested for evidence of infection with CCHF virus by antigen-capture ELISA. Serum samples from individuals working in animal and nonanimal contact-related jobs were also tested for CCHF antibodies. Serological evidence of infection was noted in 108 (22%) of 489 animals. Most of the ticks collected (618 of 912) from all species of sampled livestock were Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum, a competent vector and reservoir of CCHF virus. 243 tick pools were tested for CCHF antigen, and 19 pools were positive. Of the individuals working in animal contact-related jobs, 73 (30.3%) of 241 non-Omani citizens and only 1 (2.4%) of 41 Omani citizens were CCHF antibody-positive. Butchers were more likely to have CCHF antibody than persons in other job categories. The presence of clinical disease and the serological results for animals and humans and infected Hyalomma ticks provide ample evidence of the presence of CCHF virus in yet another country in the Arabian Peninsula.  (+info)

The authors also presented several lines of evidence supporting the adaptive function of dae genes transferred to the black-legged tick* (Ixodes scapularis) a vector for Borrelia burgdorferi, which causes Lyme disease: i) the dae2 gene is expressed in nymph and adult phases of the deer tick, ii) Dae2, a protein isolated from the tick, is found in tick salivary glands and the mid-gut, locations where the B. burgdorferi would be encountered by the tick during transmission of the bacteria via a blood meal, iii) Dae2 proteins isolated from the tick have antimicrobial properties (more specifically, the proteins can degrade bacterial cell walls). Essentially, dae2 contributes to the innate ability of the tick to control B. burgdorferi levels after infection ...

The data presented here also depicts the number of sites sampled per county, as well as the total number of ticks tested. Both tick density and pathogen infection percentage can vary greatly within a very small area, and definitely vary widely within a county. Therefore, these data should not be used to broadly predict disease risk for a larger or smaller area, such as for the county or the town. They should be used simply to educate that there is a risk to ticks and tick-borne diseases ...

Understanding the molecular basis of how ticks adapt to feed on different animal hosts is central to understanding tick and tick-borne disease (TBD) epidemiology. There is evidence that ticks differentially express specific sets of genes when stimulated to start feeding. This study was initiated to investigate if ticks such as Ixodes scapularis and Amblyomma americanum that are adapted to feed on multiple hosts utilized the same sets of proteins to prepare for feeding. We exposed I. scapularis and A. americanum to feeding stimuli of different hosts (rabbit, human, and dog) by keeping unfed adult ticks enclosed in a perforated microfuge in close contact with host skin, but not allowing ticks to attach on host. Our data suggest that ticks of the same species differentially express tick saliva proteins (TSPs) when stimulated to start feeding on different hosts. SDS-PAGE and silver staining analysis revealed unique electrophoretic profiles in saliva of I. scapularis and A. americanum that were stimulated to
Ixodes scapularis ticks harbor a variety of microorganisms, including eukaryotes, bacteria and viruses. Some of these can be transmitted to and cause disease in humans and other vertebrates. Others are not pathogenic, but may impact the ability of the tick to harbor and transmit pathogens. A growing number of studies have examined the influence of bacteria on tick vector competence but the influence of the tick virome remains less clear, despite a surge in the discovery of tick-associated viruses. In this study, we performed shotgun RNA sequencing on 112 individual adult I. scapularis collected in Wisconsin, USA. We characterized the abundance, prevalence and co-infection rates of viruses, bacteria and eukaryotic microorganisms. We identified pairs of tick-infecting microorganisms whose observed co-infection rates were higher or lower than would be expected, or whose RNA levels were positively correlated in co-infected ticks. Many of these co-occurrence and correlation relationships involved two
Now that spring is finally here and folks are venturing outdoors again, there is a certain insect that everyone should be aware of: the deer tick. Turkey hunters and anglers are especially vulnerable because they hunt and fish in ideal deer tick habitat. Sitting in the woods with your back against a tree or wading through streamside brush makes both of these outdoor enthusiasts a prime candidate for an encounter with deer ticks.. The deer tick is a tiny hard-bodied insect that can be found throughout the East and northern states of the Midwest. Not much bigger than a pinhead, it is a carrier of several diseases that can infect animals and humans alike, including Lyme disease. Whitetail deer are the primary hosts of this infectious parasite-hence the name-but it is also commonly found on mice, black bears, and wild birds, including turkeys.. Deer ticks are bloodsuckers and like mosquitoes, only the female deer tick bites and parasitizes. She has a two-year life cycle during which she goes through ...
Ixodid ticks are well known for spreading transmitted tick-borne pathogens while being attached to their hosts for almost 1-2 weeks to obtain blood meals. Thus, they must secrete many immunosuppressant factors to combat the hosts immune system. In the present work, we investigated an immunosuppressant peptide of the hard tick Amblyomma variegatum. This peptide, named amregulin, is composed of 40 residues with an amino acid sequence of HLHMHGNGATQVFKPRLVLKCPNAAQLIQPGKLQRQLLLQ. A cDNA of the precursor peptide was obtained from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI, Bethesda, MD, USA). In rat splenocytes, amregulin exerts significant anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting the secretion of inflammatory factors in vitro, such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-8 (IL-8) and interferon-gamma (IFN-γ). In rat splenocytes, treated with amregulin, compared to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) alone, the inhibition of the above inflammatory factors was significant

Experts are predicting a big jump in black-legged tick (aka deer tick) infestations this year because of a strange chain of events involving white-footed mice and acorns. Basically the white-footed mouse is a favored carrier for black-legged ticks because it is common, low to the ground and has few natural predators. Two years ago we had a huge boom in the acorn crop which led to a huge boom in the white-footed mouse population last year. This in turn led to a huge boom in tick larvae. But this year is apparently a really bad year for acorns and so the mouse population is crashing and the tick larvae, now ready for the next stage of life, are going to have to look elsewhere for their big meal. That means lots of hungry ticks hanging out in the woods.. So, seriously, watch out for those ticks. Besides Lyme disease, ticks can carry other infections. Heres some advice from the CDC.. Other rather gross facts about ticks include that they only eat three times in their lives. Once as larvae (baby ...

Ticks are obligate blood feeders. The midgut is the first major region of the body where blood and microbes ingested with the blood meal come in contact with the ticks internal tissues. Little is known about protein expression in the digestive tract of ticks. In this study, for analysis of global gene expression during tick attachment and feeding, we generated and sequenced 1,679 random transcripts (ESTs) from cDNA libraries from the midguts of female ticks at varying stages of feeding. Sequence analysis of the 1,679 ESTs resulted in the identification of 835 distinct transcripts, from these, a total of 82 transcripts were identified as proteins putatively directly involved in blood meal digestion, including enzymes involved in oxidative stress reduction/antimicrobial activity/detoxification, peptidase inhibitors, protein digestion (cysteine-, aspartic-, serine-, and metallo-peptidases), cell, protein and lipid binding including mucins and iron/heme metabolism and transport.

Ticks are little indicators on an axis to mark special positions on that axis. In JSXGraph they come in mainly three flavors: Equidistant, functional and special ticks. Equidistant ticks are those with the same distance between each marker, the distance between two functional ticks is determined by a function taking the number i of the tick ([math]i \in \mathbb{Z}[/math]) and returning the distance between the (i-1)-th and the i-th tick. Equidistant and functional ticks are created all over the axis against what special ticks are only created once. ...

My dog is treated regularly with Bravecto for flea and tick protection, but Im not actually sure how this works with regards to ticks. We walk regularly in long grass near sheep, so I know we are at high risk of ticks, but should I still be checking for ticks and removing them if I find them? Does the treatment stop them attaching or does it just stop them passing on nasty things?
Ive just been having fun with scrolling graphs in JavaFx. It seems that when using Number axis without autoRanging graphs must always start with a major tick, even if it is not a multiple of tickUnit. For example a graph with xAxis range 4 to 24 and tickUnit 10. I would expect major ticks at 10 and 20, however I see ticks at 4, 14 and 24 - this feels weird. To me aligning tick marks to multiples makes sense and should at least be a option, its what you would have done in your Maths when drawing graphs by hand. * my question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25383566/scrolling-xychart-with-javafx/25397836 * another one I found later: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13119597/javafx-2-x-how-to-move-line-grid-and-x-ticks-together I solved this by subclassing ValueAxis - see my own answer on stackoverflow link.

Ticks are unsightly and cause disease in our pets. It is a good thing then that tick medications work to rid our pets of these pests!
After extracting DNA from the tick, our modern molecular approach utilizes primers and probes to amplify certain sequences of DNA specific to the pathogen of interest. If detected, we can confirm that the tick carries that particular pathogen. ​
A tick attaches itself to the skin of a person or animal and sucks blood. If you have a dog, it may have picked up a tick before! Learn more about ticks in this article for kids.
