Short report: prevalence of antibodies against spotted fever, murine typhus, and Q fever rickettsiae in humans living in Zambia. (1/103)

The causative agents of rickettsial diseases (Rickettsia conorii, R. typhi, and Coxiella burnetii) have been reported throughout the African continent. However, there have been no reports on epidemiologic surveys of these infections in Zambia. This study was designed to clarify the prevalence of three rickettsioses in 377 humans in Zambia. The seroprevalence of antibodies against R. conorii, R. typhi, and C. burnetii was 16.7%, 5.0%, and 8.2%, respectively. The rates of antibody positivity against R. conorii and C. burnetii were higher in the eastern (23.1% and 11.8%) and western (16.8% and 7.4%) areas of Zambia than in the northern (3.0% and 3.0%) area of this country. There was little difference among the three areas in the distribution of antibodies against R. typhi. Since cattle breeding is more extensive in the western and eastern areas than in the northern area, it is thought that cattle-breeding areas are foci of R. conorii and C. burnetii infections in Zambia.  (+info)

Differential up-regulation of circulating soluble selectins and endothelial adhesion molecules in Sicilian patients with Boutonneuse fever. (2/103)

In 150 patients with Boutonneuse fever (BF), caused by Rickettsia conorii, we studied the plasma levels of soluble L-selectin (sL-selectin), vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sVCAM-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) and E-selectin (sE-selectin) in various phases of disease to clarify their role in disease evolution. Results indicate that during the acute phase of BF there is a significant increase in the serum levels of sL-selectin, sE-selectin, sVCAM-1 and sICAM-1. sL-selectin and sVCAM-1 returned to normal levels in the third week of disease, whereas sE-selectin and sICAM-1 persisted at significantly high levels even after the third week. The secretion of these soluble CAMs in BF is mainly the result of leucocyte expression and endothelial cell activation, but secretion also appears to mediate anti-inflammatory activities, moderating leucocyte adhesion and reducing in particular lymphocyte and monocyte infiltration. Only sL-selectin serum levels were found to correlate with the acute phase of infection characterized by fever.  (+info)

Epidemiological characteristics of spotted fever in Israel over 26 years. (3/103)

During the summer of 1997, 2 confirmed and several suspected fatal cases of spotted fever (SF) occurred in previously healthy young adults in Israel. This unusual cluster of events stimulated the current study. The incidence of SF in Israel from 1971-98 was analyzed. Incidence increased until 1980, declined until 1994, and increased slightly from 1994-97. Incidence was higher during the summer, among children aged 0-9 years, and in rural settlements in central Israel. From 1971-1997, 31 deaths were reported, mostly in the elderly. The deaths that occurred in 1997 are a reminder that, despite the fact that morbidity due to SF is described mainly in children, SF can have a rapidly fatal outcome in healthy young adults. Thus, even during periods of low incidence, careful monitoring and high awareness for prompt diagnosis and treatment are needed.  (+info)

New Rickettsiae in ticks collected in territories of the former soviet union. (4/103)

Dermacentor nuttallii from Siberia, Rhipicephalus sanguineus from Crimea, and Rh. pumilio from the Astrakhan region were infected with Rickettsia sibirica (12%), R. conorii (8%), and the Astrakhan fever agent (3%), respectively. Three new Rickettsiae of the R. massiliae genogroup were identified in ticks by 16S rDNA, gltA, and ompA sequencing.  (+info)

Short report: isolation and identification of two spotted fever group rickettsial strains from patients in Catalonia, Spain. (5/103)

Two rickettsial strains, 16B (previously isolated) and FB1, were isolated from blood from patients with Mediterranean spotted fever in Catalonia, Spain. These are the only 2 human rickettsial isolates of the spotted fever group obtained so far in Spain. These strains were identified by the polymerase chain reaction and sequence analysis of a fragment of the outer membrane protein A (ompA) gene. The partial ompA sequence was found to be 100% identical with that of Rickettsia conorii (Malish 7 strain) for both strains. These results confirm the presence of R. conorii in Catalonia, despite the fact that in a previous study, no R. conorii were isolated, but a new rickettsial strain of the spotted fever group (Bar29) was isolated from dog ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) in Catalonia. Further studies are necessary to get a better knowledge of the epidemiology of rickettsiae in Catalonia.  (+info)

The rickettsial outer-membrane protein A and B genes of Rickettsia australis, the most divergent rickettsia of the spotted fever group. (6/103)

The genes for rickettsial outer-membrane protein A (rOmpA), a distinguishing feature of spotted fever group (SFG) rickettsiae, and rOmpB, a genus-specific protein, were identified and sequenced in Rickettsia australis. The amino acid sequences of domains I, III and IV of the R. australis rOmpA share close homology with those of rOmpA of other SFG rickettsiae, but the repeat region (domain II) is dramatically different from that of other known SFG rOmpA. R. australis rOmpB is more similar to rOmpB of other SFG rickettsiae than to that of typhus group rickettsiae.  (+info)

Critical role of cytotoxic T lymphocytes in immune clearance of rickettsial infection. (7/103)

Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) activity developed against the major infected target cells of rickettsial infections, endothelial cells and macrophages. Spleen cells from mice immune to Rickettsia conorii exerted specific major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I-matched CTL activity against R. conorii-infected SVEC-10 endothelial cells, with peak activity on day 10. Similarly, spleen cells from Rickettsia australis-immune mice exerted specific CTL activity against an R. australis-infected macrophage-like cell line. Gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) gene knockout mice were more than 100-fold more susceptible to R. australis infection than wild-type C57BL/6 mice. MHC class I gene knockout mice were the most susceptible, more than 50,000-fold more susceptible to a lethal outcome of R. australis infection than wild-type C57BL/6 mice. These results indicate that CTL activity was more critical to recovery from rickettsial infection than were the effects of IFN-gamma. The observation that perforin gene knockout mice were more than 100-fold more susceptible than wild-type C57BL/6 mice indicates that perforin-mediated activity accounts for a large component, but not all, of the CTL-mediated antirickettsial effect. CTL activity was expressed by immune CD8 T lymphocytes. Adoptive transfer of immune CD8 T lymphocytes from IFN-gamma gene knockout mice into R. australis-infected IFN-gamma gene knockout mice dramatically reduced the infectious rickettsial content in the organs, confirming that CD8 T lymphocytes provide immunity against rickettsiae besides that provided by the secretion of IFN-gamma. CTLs appear to be crucial to recovery from rickettsial infection.  (+info)

Rickettsia felis: molecular characterization of a new member of the spotted fever group. (8/103)

In this report, placement of Rickettsia felis in the spotted fever group (SFG) rather than the typhus group (TG) of Rickettsia is proposed. The organism, which was first observed in cat fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) by electron microscopy, has not yet been reported to have been cultivated reproducibly, thereby limiting the standard rickettsial typing by serological means. To overcome this challenge, several genes were selected as targets to be utilized for the classification of R. felis. DNA from cat fleas naturally infected with R. felis was amplified by PCR utilizing primer sets specific for the 190 kDa surface antigen (rOmpA) and 17 kDa antigen genes. The entire 5,513 bp rompA gene was sequenced, characterized and found to have several unique features when compared to the rompA genes of other Rickettsia. Phylogenetic analysis of the partial sequence of the 17 kDa antigen gene indicated that R. felis is less divergent from the SFG rickettsiae than from the TG rickettsiae. The data corroborate results from previous reports that analysed the citrate synthase, 16S rRNA, rompB (135 kDa surface antigen), metK, ftsY, polA and dnaE genes that placed R. felis as a member of the SFG. The organism is passed trans-stadially and transovarially, and infection in the cat flea has been observed in the midgut, tracheal matrix, muscle, hypodermis, ovaries and testes.  (+info)

Abstract Spotted fever rickettsiosis in Israel has been considered as possibly somewhat more severe than boutonneuse fever, from which it also differs in having a very low proportion of cases with a tick-inoculation site eschar. This investigation was undertaken to determine whether the Israeli spotted fever group (SFG) rickettsiae differed sufficiently from Rickettsia conorii to be considered as a distinct species. Strains of Rickettsia conorii from Morocco and South Africa, four SFG rickettsial isolates from Israel, one from Russia, and one from Zimbabwe were compared by microimmunofluorescence serotyping, Western immunoblotting, monoclonal antibody reactivity, and polymerase chain reaction amplification of the repeat domain of the rickettsial outer membrane protein A (rOmpA). All are strains and isolates of R. conorii, yet there is considerable molecular and antigenic diversity of both rOmpA and rickettsial outer membrane protein B (rOmpB) among them. The rOmpA gene of the Israeli isolates and the

N2 - In order to determine the definitive importance of T- and B-lymphocytes in immunity to Rickettsia conorii, mice genetically deficient in T-cells. B-cells, or both T- and B-cells were infected experimentally. T-lymphocytes rather than humoral antibodies were crucial to rikettsial clearance and a reduced mortality rate. Mice incapable of an antibody response to polysaccharide capsular antigens effectively controlled rickettsial infection with no mortality. In contrast, nude mice produced antibody to thymus-independent antigens early in the course of infection, yet experienced severe rickettsial infection resulting in death. The observed hepatic lesions are similar to those of boutonneuse fever. This model offers the opportunity to investigate rickettsial immune mechanisms and hepatic injury..

Generally speaking, most bugs go dormant in the winter season - great news for outdoor enthusiasts. (Give a cheer, mosquitoes are gone!) But, there is one disease-carrying bug that still remains a threat to gardeners, campers, hikers and walkers: the black-legged tick. Although tick activity is high in the warm months beginning in spring, tick bites in winter are common. After all, ticks need blood to survive; and they will seek out humans, pets and livestock to remain active. Studies suggest that deer ticks hide underneath leaves and on firewood to stay insulated during the winter months. As long as temperatures are above freezing, tick bites and tick-borne illnesses threaten humans and animals. "Diseases transmitted by ticks in North America include: Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Powassan virus, American boutonneuse fever, tularemia, Colorado tick fever, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, relapsing fever, and tick paralysis."  (Thought Co.

I read with interest the article by Paddock et al. [1], who described the detection of occult mortality due to Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) by demonstrating Rickettsia rickettsii antigens or DNA in blood and tissues. In Mediterranean countries, including Israel, spotted fever is caused by members of the R. conorii complex, which are antigenically related to R. rickettsii. ... To the Editor -- We appreciate the comments by Yagupsky, which underscore several of the salient features of spotted fever- group rickettsial infections that we emphasized in our report [2]. For patients, diagnosticians, and clinicians faced with the potentially tragic consequences of Rocky Mountain spotted fever or severe Mediterranean spotted fever (MSF), these points merit repeating. First, the nonspecific signs and symptoms early in the course of rickettsial infections mimic many other infectious and noninfectious syndromes. Second, the diagnostic challenges posed by these diseases are compounded by the lack of rapid
Rickettsia conorii, the causative agent of Mediterranean spotted fever, is able to attach to and invade a variety of cell types both in vitro and in vivo. Although previous studies show that entry of R. conorii into non-phagocytic cells relies on actin polymerization, little else is known about the molecular details governing Rickettsia-host cell interactions and actin rearrangements. We determined that R. conorii recruits the Arp2/3 complex to the site of entry foci and that expression of an Arp 2/3 binding derivative of the WASP-family member, Scar, inhibited bacterial entry into Vero cells, establishing that Arp2/3 is an active component of this process. Using transient transfection with plasmids expressing dominant negative versions of small GTPases, we showed that Cdc42, but not Rac1 is involved in R. conorii invasion into Vero cells. Using pharmacological approaches, we show that this invasion is dependent on phosphoinositide (PI) 3-kinase and on protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) activities, in

To the Editor: Rickettsiae are vector-borne pathogens that affect humans and animals worldwide (1). Pathogens in the Rickettsia conorii complex are known to cause Mediterranean spotted fever (MSF) (R. conorii Malish strain), Astrakhan fever (R. conorii Astrakhan strain), Israeli spotted fever (R. conorii Israeli spotted fever strain), and Indian tick typhus (R. conorii Indian tick typhus strain) in the Mediterranean basin and Africa, southern Russia, the Middle East, and India and Pakistan, respectively (2). These rickettsioses share some clinical features, such as febrile illness and generalized cutaneous rash, and are transmitted to humans by Rhipicephalus spp. ticks (2).. MSF is endemic to Sicily (Italy); fatal cases occur each year, and the prevalence of R. conorii in dogs is high (3-6). Recently, R. conorii Malish strain and R. conorii Israeli spotted fever strain were confirmed in humans in Sicily in whom MSF was diagnosed (4), which suggests that other R. conorii strains might be present ...

The best would be the one that most suits your style of study and play. If you dont like theory, or razor sharp positions, then the Najdorf or Dragon would be the worst choice on either grounds. Thats the part of the Sicilians attraction: regardless of your style of play, or how little you like studying theory, there is a Sicilian that will fit.. The Sicilian 4 Ns, for instance, doesnt give black the winning chances he has in say the Najdorf, but its also very resilient and a good choice for someone who wants to play the Sicilian, but doesnt want a lot of theory or to be faced with the knife edged attacks a Dragon player regularly sees. The trade off is that its very drawish and when theres winning chances, they often belong to white; and you need to know how to play with an IQP, because its something black is saddled with in the mainline 4 Ns.. Also there is another factor too: transpositions. Sicilians generally have the flexibility of letting you transpose into another Sicilian, which ...
The pentose phosphate pathway is a process of glucose turnover that produces NADPH as reducing equivalents and pentoses as essential parts of nucleotides. There are two different phases in the pathway. One is irreversible oxidative phase in which glucose-6P is converted to ribulose-5P by oxidative decarboxylation, and NADPH is generated [MD:M00006]. The other is reversible non-oxidative phase in which phosphorylated sugars are interconverted to generate xylulose-5P, ribulose-5P, and ribose-5P [MD:M00007]. Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate (PRPP) formed from ribose-5P [MD:M00005] is an activated compound used in the biosynthesis of histidine and purine/pyrimidine nucleotides. This pathway map also shows the Entner-Doudoroff pathway where 6-P-gluconate is dehydrated and then cleaved into pyruvate and glyceraldehyde-3P [MD:M00008 ...

Rickettsial testing is used to determine whether a person with symptoms and a recent history of potential exposure to a specific rickettsia has been infected. Testing can help distinguish a rickettsial infection from other conditions causing similar symptoms, such as some other bacterial and viral infections and can help guide treatment. Testing may detect antibodies that your body has produced in response to the rickettsial infection or directly identify the organism by DNA testing or by culture. Because these bacteria can only live inside animal cells they are difficult to culture and must be grown in tissue cultures or chicken embryos. This test is currently only performed at specialised laboratories.. When you have your blood drawn for diagnostic testing you usually have one serum tube and one EDTA (anticoagulant) tube collected. The serum tube goes towards the serology testing whereas the EDTA tube (plasma) is used for both DNA and culture testing. PCR testing may occasionally be performed ...
