Blood-sucking acarid parasites of the order Ixodida comprising two families: the softbacked ticks (ARGASIDAE) and hardbacked ticks (IXODIDAE). Ticks are larger than their relatives, the MITES. They penetrate the skin of their host by means of highly specialized, hooked mouth parts and feed on its blood. Ticks attack all groups of terrestrial vertebrates. In humans they are responsible for many TICK-BORNE DISEASES, including the transmission of ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPOTTED FEVER; TULAREMIA; BABESIOSIS; AFRICAN SWINE FEVER; and RELAPSING FEVER. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp543-44)
The type species of the FLAVIVIRUS genus. Principal vector transmission to humans is by AEDES spp. mosquitoes.
The lone species of the genus Asfivirus. It infects domestic and wild pigs, warthogs, and bushpigs. Disease is endemic in domestic swine in many African countries and Sardinia. Soft ticks of the genus Ornithodoros are also infected and act as vectors.
A mosquito-borne species of the PHLEBOVIRUS genus found in eastern, central, and southern Africa, producing massive hepatitis, abortion, and death in sheep, goats, cattle, and other animals. It also has caused disease in humans.
Bacterial, viral, or parasitic diseases transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of infected ticks. The families Ixodidae and Argasidae contain many bloodsucking species that are important pests of man and domestic birds and mammals and probably exceed all other arthropods in the number and variety of disease agents they transmit. Many of the tick-borne diseases are zoonotic.
An infectious disease caused by a spirochete, BORRELIA BURGDORFERI, which is transmitted chiefly by Ixodes dammini (see IXODES) and pacificus ticks in the United States and Ixodes ricinis (see IXODES) in Europe.

Recombinant VP7-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for detection of immunoglobulin G antibodies to Colorado tick fever virus. (1/12)

VP6, VP7, VP9, VP10, VP11, and VP12 of Colorado tick fever virus (CTF virus), a virus member of the genus Coltivirus, family Reoviridae, were expressed in bacteria with the pGEX-4T-2 vector. A partial sequence of VP7 (designated pVP7) was chosen to elaborate an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting anti-CTF virus immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies in humans. This was based on two observations: (i) among all expressed proteins, pVP7 showed the highest immunoreactivity to an anti-CTF virus hyperimmune ascitic fluid; (ii) to provide the highest selectivity of antibody detection, the expressed sequence was chosen within a region which is highly divergent (49% amino acid identity) from the homologous sequence of another coltivirus, the Eyach virus. The pVP7 ELISA was evaluated with 368 serum samples from French blood donors and found to provide 98.1% specificity. Assays with the Calisher set of human serum samples, positive for anti-CTF virus antibodies (C. H. Calisher, J. D. Poland, S. B. Calisher, and L. A Warmoth, J. Clin. Microbiol. 22:84-88, 1985), showed that the pVP7 ELISA provided 100% sensitivity for the tested population. After elaboration of recombinant-protein-based ELISAs for diagnosis of infections with members of the viral genera Orbivirus, Orthoreovirus, and Rotavirus, it was shown that a recombinant protein could be used to detect antibodies to the human pathogen Colorado tick fever virus.  (+info)

Termination and read-through proteins encoded by genome segment 9 of Colorado tick fever virus. (2/12)

Genome segment 9 (Seg-9) of Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV) is 1884 bp long and contains a large open reading frame (ORF; 1845 nt in length overall), although a single in-frame stop codon (at nt 1052-1054) reduces the ORF coding capacity by approximately 40 %. However, analyses of highly conserved RNA sequences in the vicinity of the stop codon indicate that it belongs to a class of 'leaky terminators'. The third nucleotide positions in codons situated both before and after the stop codon, shows the highest variability, suggesting that both regions are translated during virus replication. This also suggests that the stop signal is functionally leaky, allowing read-through translation to occur. Indeed, both the truncated 'termination' protein and the full-length 'read-through' protein (VP9 and VP9', respectively) were detected in CTFV-infected cells, in cells transfected with a plasmid expressing only Seg-9 protein products, and in the in vitro translation products from undenatured Seg-9 ssRNA. The ratios of full-length and truncated proteins generated suggest that read-through may be down-regulated by other viral proteins. Western blot analysis of infected cells and purified CTFV showed that VP9 is a structural component of the virion, while VP9' is a non-structural protein.  (+info)

Diagnosis of Colorado tick fever virus infection by enzyme immunoassays for immunoglobulin M and G antibodies. (4/12)

An immunoglobulin M (IgM) capture enzyme immunoassay technique was adapted for the detection of antibody to Colorado tick fever virus in sera from 84 individuals for whom diagnosis had been confirmed by virus isolation or neutralization test. Titers were compared with those for IgG and neutralizing antibodies in these Colorado tick fever cases. IgM antibody titers were higher than neutralizing antibody titers, but neither appeared until 1 to 2 weeks after the onset of illness. Neutralizing antibodies were detected earlier than IgM antibodies, and both were detected with greater frequency than IgG antibodies. Late-convalescent-phase sera contained both neutralizing and IgG antibodies, but IgM was all but undetectable by 2 months after onset. Although the neutralization test may remain the serological test of choice, the enzyme immunoassay for IgM antibody offers a simple and more rapid method of serodiagnosis; the enzyme immunoassay is, however, less sensitive than the neutralization test. Furthermore, because there was a sharp decline in IgM antibody after 45 days, the presence of IgM antibody in a single serum sample provides a basis for the presumptive serodiagnosis of recent Colorado tick fever virus infection.  (+info)

Genetic relatedness of Colorado tick fever virus isolates by RNA-RNA blot hybridization. (5/12)

The sequence relatedness of ten isolates of the Colorado tick fever (CTF) serogroup of orbiviruses was examined by RNA-RNA blot hybridization. The 12 dsRNA genome segments of each of the isolates were electrophoresed in a 10% polyacrylamide gel, the segments were transferred electrophoretically to membranes and hybridized to radiolabelled genomic RNA from CTF Florio mouse-adapted strain (CTF FMA) or CTF SS-18. All genome segments of the ten CTF viruses exhibited cross-hybridization signals with either CTF FMA or CTF SS-18, under conditions in which greater than or equal to 74% sequence homology was required to form stable hybrids. Although the dsRNA polyacrylamide gel profiles were unique for each isolate examined, the CTF genes did not exhibit sequence divergence as has been seen among other Orbivirus serogroups. These hybridization analyses suggest that the CTF gene pool is relatively homogeneous which may be a reflection of the lack of multiple serotypes of CTF strains in neutralization tests. Nevertheless, the hybridization signals of segments 4 and 6 were lighter than those of the other genes, indicating that these two genes exhibited the highest degree of sequence variability among these isolates. These data are compared with hybridization data on other Orbivirus serogroups.  (+info)

Antigenic variants of Colorado tick fever virus. (6/12)

Twenty strains of Colorado tick fever (CTF) virus, isolated from ticks, mammals and humans, and two antigenic relatives of CTF virus were compared in cross-neutralization tests. Viruses were tested using single-inoculation sera prepared in hamsters. Antigenic variation, as measured by differences detected in the neutralization test, was noted among the virus isolates identified as strains of CTF virus. The virus strains isolated from humans appeared to vary the most in serological reactions. The two antigenic relatives of CTF virus are clearly distinct from strains of CTF and are different from each other. Antigenic relationships between these two viruses were established using two sets of single-inoculation antisera and both complement fixation and neutralization tests. Six distinct antigenic variants of CTF virus isolated from humans and the virus strain from ticks (75V1906) that showed the least antigenic variation, were tested against 49 coded serum pairs from clinically diagnosed cases of CTF. Significant differences were noted in the number of convalescent-phase sera that reacted with each virus strain and in the number of seroconversions observed with each test virus strain. Convalescent phase sera that reacted with multiple virus strains often varied significantly in antibody titre from one virus strain to another. This indicates that, in some instances, antibody was probably produced in response to infection by different antigenic variants of CTF virus.  (+info)

Inhibition of bluetongue and Colorado tick fever orbiviruses by selected antiviral substances. (7/12)

The effects of four ribonucleic acid virus inhibitors were evaluated in cell cultures and in mice to determine inhibitory effects against bluetongue virus and Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV). Test compounds included 1-beta-D-ribofuranosyl-1,2,4-triazole-3-carboxamide (ribavirin), 3-deazaguanine, 3-deazauridine, and 9-(S)-(2,3-dihydroxypropyl)adenine. Ribavirin-2',3',5'-triacetate (ribavirin triacetate) was evaluated in vivo against CTFV. Inhibition of cytopathic effect and plaque reduction were used to evaluate antiviral activity. In cytopathic effect inhibition studies, bluetongue virus was markedly inhibited by 3-deazaguanine and 3-deazauridine in Vero cells with moderate inhibition by the other agents. Ribavirin and 3-deazaguanine markedly inhibited CTFV in MA-104 cells, 3-deazauridine was slightly less active, and 9-(S)-(2,3-dihydroxypropyl)adenine was negative. Ribavirin was less effective in Vero cells against CTFV. When mice were inoculated intracerebrally with CTFV and treated by a single intracerebral injection with drug, ribavirin triacetate increased the number of survivors, 3-deazaguanine increased mean survival time, and ribavirin was negative. Intraperitoneal treatment of infected mice with ribavirin triacetate for 1 week significantly increased the number of survivors and mean survival time, providing strong evidence that the agent is active across the blood-brain barrier.  (+info)

The development of Colorado tick fever virus within cells of the haemopoietic system. (8/12)

Electron microscopic examination of haemopoietic liver tissue from mice infected in utero or when newborn showed inclusions of Colorado tick fever virus within erythroblasts, reticulocytes and erythrocytes. Inclusions were also seen within erythroblastoid cells undergoing mitosis. Other evidence of virus replication within erythropoietic cells was the presence of intracytoplasmic and intranuclear fibres, which have been shown to be associated with Colorado tick fever virus replication. The findings reported here support the hypothesis that virus replication within infected erythropoietic cells occurs concurrently with differentiation of the infected cell, resulting in the presence of virions within erythrocytes.  (+info)

Colorado tick fever (CTF) (also called mountain tick fever, American tick fever, and American mountain tick fever) is a viral infection (Coltivirus) transmitted from the bite of an infected Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni). It should not be confused with the bacterial tick-borne infection, Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The type species of the genus Coltivirus, Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV) infects haemopoietic cells, particularly erythrocytes, which explains how the virus is transmitted by ticks and also accounts for the incidence of transmission by blood transfusion. The disease develops from March to September, with the highest infections occurring in June. The disease is found almost exclusively in the western United States and Canada, mostly in high mountain areas such as Colorado and Idaho. The CTFV was first isolated from human blood in 1944. The virus particle, like other coltiviruses, is about 80 nm in diameter and is generally not enveloped. The double-stranded RNA ...
Colorado tick fever (CTF) is a disease caused by an RNA virus, Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV). Symptoms, which are often non-specific, begin 3 to 5 days after the bite with an abrupt onset of fever and any of these: headaches, chills, malaise, photophobia, myalgias, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. In 5 to 15% of cases a rash occurs. Neurologic complications may also occur. 50% of patients have single recurrence of fever (saddleback fever).. IFA titers for diagnosis. PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) is the test most often used to diagnose the disease. CTF is transmitted by Dermacentor andersoni (Rocky Mt. wood tick) which causes illness from the Western Black Hills to the West Coast in the USA. Some cases of transmission through blood transfusion have been reported. Treatment consists of supportive care.. ©LDA. 2014. 2015.

Abstract Isolation of the virus, the most reliable means of diagnosing Colorado tick fever, is not always practicable. The standard complement-fixation test, using a mouse-brain-derived antigen, may not detect significant rises in antibody titer during the usual 2- or 3-week observation period. Complement-fixation (CF) tests, with antigens derived from infected mouse brains and from an established line of hamster-kidney cells, were compared with a neutralization (plaque-reduction) test and an indirect fluorescent-antibody (IFA) staining test for usefulness in the serologic diagnosis of 34 cases of Colorado tick fever. The cell-culture antigen was as reliable as the mouse-brain antigen, and its preparation was simpler. The CF-antibody titers and the neutralizing-antibody titers tended to be lower and slower to appear than the IFA titers. The IFA method was simple, rapid, and accurate. The IFA titers frequently appeared earlier after onset of illness and reached higher levels than did the CF titers.

Its important to consult your doctor even if signs and symptoms disappear - the absence of symptoms doesnt mean the disease is gone. Left untreated, Lyme disease can spread to other parts of your body from several months to years after infection, causing arthritis and nervous system problems. Ticks also can transmit other illnesses, such as babesiosis and Colorado tick fever.. In the United States, Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii bacteria, carried primarily by blacklegged or deer ticks. The ticks are brown and, when young, often no bigger than a poppy seed, which can make them nearly impossible to spot.. To contract Lyme disease, an infected deer tick must bite you. The bacteria enter your skin through the bite and eventually make their way into your bloodstream. In most cases, to transmit Lyme disease, a deer tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours. If you find an attached tick looks swollen, it may have fed long enough to transmit bacteria. Removing the ...
Ticks can transmit a number of diseases to children; these include bacterial (Lyme, RMSF, ehrlichiosis, tularemia), protozoal (babesiosis), and viral (Colorado tick fever) pathogens. The index of suspicion for tick-borne pathogens should be high in children with unexplained fever or dermatologic findings: a childs play or other activities may put them at higher risk of contact with ticks than adults; the history of tick exposure infrequently is elicited; even if a child notes a tick, tick removal may not occur promptly or thoroughly; and children may become more ill with certain tick-borne diseases than adults. ...
Summary Neutralizing antibodies formed after inoculation of man with a purified Colorado tick fever vaccine have persisted in most instances for 5 years or more. Intradermal inoculation of small amounts of vaccine for skin tests, even that long after original vaccination, resulted in a significant rise in titer of neutralizing antibody. There was no evidence of development of hypersensitivity to any of the components in the vaccine. Results of prevaccination skin tests did not differ significantly from those obtained in tests given after several inoculations of vaccine.
