Risk of Lyme disease: perceptions of residents of a Lone Star tick-infested community. (1/199)

BACKGROUND: Lone Star ticks (Amblyomma americanum) have been suggested as a vector of the agent of Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato) in the USA, based on associations with an infection manifesting mainly as erythema migrans. In laboratory experiments, however, they failed to transmit B. burgdorferi sensu stricto. METHODS: In this study, carried out from 1994 to 1996, we determined the seroprevalences of B. burgdorferi (1.2%), Ehrlichia chaffeensis (7%), E. phagocytophila (0%), Rickettsia rickettsii (0%), R. typhi (0%), Coxiella burneti (0%), Francisella tularensis (0%), and Babesia microti (0%) by standard serological methods for 325 residents (97% of the total population) of Gibson Island, coastal Maryland, USA, where 15% of the residents reported having had Lyme disease within a recent 5-year span. FINDINGS: Of the 167 seronegative individuals who were followed up prospectively for 235 person-years of observation, only 2 (0.85%) seroconverted for B. burgdorferi. Of 1556 ticks submitted from residents, 95% were identified as Lone Star ticks; only 3% were deer ticks (Ixodes dammini), the main American vector of Lyme disease. B. burgdorferi s.s. infected 20% of host-seeking immature deer ticks, and borreliae ("B. lonestari") were detected in 1-2% of Lone Star ticks. Erythema migrans was noted in 65% of self-reports of Lyme disease, but many such reports indicated that the rash was present while the tick was still attached, suggesting a reaction to the bite itself rather than true Lyme disease. Sera from individuals reporting Lyme disease generally failed to react to B. burgdorferi or any other pathogen antigens. CONCLUSION: The residents of Gibson Island had an exaggerated perception of the risk of Lyme disease because they were intensely infested with an aggressively human-biting and irritating nonvector tick. In addition, a Lyme disease mimic of undescribed etiology (named Masters' disease) seems to be associated with Lone Star ticks, and may confound Lyme disease surveillance. The epidemiological and entomological approach used in this study might fruitfully be applied wherever newly emergent tickborne zoonoses have been discovered.  (+info)

Lack of parthenogenesis by Amblyomma cajennense (Acari: Ixodidae). (2/199)

Some reproductive parameters of adult stages of Amblyomma cajennense ticks were studied. The capacity of virgin females to reproduce by parthenogenesis was evaluated, during an experimental infestation, in absence of males, on a horse (Equus cabalus). Ticks were spread either completely free or in limited sites on the body of the animal. The engorged virgin females showed longer feeding periods and lighter body weights than those that had been fertilized. Some of these unmated females produced smaller egg masses, which had no embryonary development. On the other hand, females that had been inseminated produced larger egg masses, with normal embryonary development that led to viable larvae. Under the studied conditions, A. cajennense females did not reproduce by parthenogenesis.  (+info)

Biology of Amblyomma aureolatum (Pallas, 1772) (Acari: Ixodidae) on some laboratory hosts in Brazil. (3/199)

The ixodid Amblyomma aureolatum is suspected to play a role in the epidemiology of wild life-cycle hemoparasites, which frequently infect dogs in rural and hunting areas in Brazil. Little is known about its bionomics. The objective of the present study was to evaluate some bionomic aspects of A. aureolatum ticks in Brazil. One engorged female, collected from a dog (Canis familiaris) in Sao Sebastiao das Aguas Claras, State of Minas Gerais, was used to establish a colony in the laboratory. Subsequently its parasitic stage progeny were fed on domestic dogs and laboratory animals. The free-living stages were incubated at 27 degrees C +/- 2 degrees C and minimum 70% relative humidity in a BOD incubator. The egg incubation period ranged from 31 to 34 days; the parasitic period of larvae ranged from 4 to 6 days and ecdysis to nymphs occurred from day 19 up to day 22. The parasitic period of nymphs ranged from 5 to 8 days and the period of ecdysis to adults from 31 to 33 days. The parasitic period of adults ranged from 11 to 15 days, the pre-oviposition period from 6 to 12 days, and the oviposition period from 9 to 38 days. The total duration of the life cycle ranged from 116 to 168 days.  (+info)

Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) on wild animals from the Porto-Primavera Hydroelectric power station area, Brazil. (4/199)

From June 2000 to June 2001, a total of 741 ticks were collected from 51 free-living wild animals captured at the Porto-Primavera Hydroelectric power station area, located alongside an approximately 180 km course of the Paran river, between the states of S o Paulo and Mato Grosso do Sul, comprising 9 species of 3 genera: Ambly-omma (7 species), Boophilus (1) and Anocentor (1). A total of 421 immature Amblyomma ticks were reared in laboratory until the adult stage, allowing identification of the species. A. cajennense was the most frequent tick species (mostly immature stages) collected on 9 host species: Myrmecophaga tridactyla, Tamandua tetradactyla,Cerdocyon thous, Puma concolor,Tayassu tajacu, Mazama gouazoubira,Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris,Alouatta caraya, Cebus apella. Other tick species were less common, generally restricted to certain host taxa.  (+info)

Brazilian distribution of Amblyomma varium Koch, 1844 (Acari: Ixodidae), a common parasite of sloths (Mammalia: Xenarthra). (5/199)

Amblyomma varium, commonly known in Brazil as the "carrapato-gigante-da-pregui a" (sloth's giant tick) is found from southern Central America to Argentina. The present study adds information on the geographical distribution of A. varium, as well as on their hosts, based on material deposited in the main Brazilian collections and on the available literature. Eighty-two vials, containing 191 adult specimens, deposited in five Acari collections between 1930 and 2001, were examined. These vials included data on the host and collection localities. The biology of A. varium is unknown. However it is known that, during the adult stage, the tick presents a high host specificity and is found almost exclusively on the sloths Bradypus tridactylus, B. variegatus, B.torquatus (Bradypodidae), Choloepus hoffmanni and C. didactylus (Megalonychidae). Based on the material examined, the states of Rond nia, Amazonas, Bahia and Alagoas are newly assigned to geographic distribution of A. varium in Brazil.  (+info)

A new intracellular pathway of haem detoxification in the midgut of the cattle tick Boophilus microplus: aggregation inside a specialized organelle, the hemosome. (6/199)

The hard tick Boophilus microplus ingests large volumes of cattle blood, as much as 100 times its own mass before feeding. Huge amounts of haem are produced during haemoglobin digestion, which takes place inside acidic lysosomal-type vacuoles of the digest cells of the midgut. Haem is a promoter of free radical formation, so haemoglobin digestion poses an intense oxidative challenge to this animal. In the present study we followed the fate of the haem derived from haemoglobin hydrolysis in the digest cells of the midgut of fully engorged tick females. The tick does not synthesize haem, so during the initial phase of blood digestion, absorption is the major route taken by the haem, which is transferred from the digest cells to the tick haemocoel. After this absorptive period of a few days, most of the haem produced upon haemoglobin degradation is accumulated in the interior of a specialized, membrane-delimited, organelle of the digest cell, herein called hemosome. Haem accounts for 90% of the hemosome mass and is concentrated in the core of this structure, appearing as a compact, non-crystalline aggregate of iron protoporphyrin IX without covalent modifications. The unusual FTIR spectrum of this aggregate suggests that lateral propionate chains are involved in the association of haem molecules with other components of the hemosome, which it is proposed is a major haem detoxification mechanism in this blood-sucking arthropod.  (+info)

Identification and characterization of novel salivary thrombin inhibitors from the ixodidae tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis. (7/199)

Novel antithrombin molecules were identified from the ixodidae tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis. These molecules, named madanin 1 and 2, are 7-kDa proteins and show no significant similarities to any previously identified proteins. Assays using human plasma showed that madanin 1 and 2 dose-dependently prolonged both activated partial thromboplastin time and prothrombin time, indicating that they inhibit both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways. Direct binding assay by surface plasmon resonance measurement demonstrated that madanin 1 and 2 specifically interacted with thrombin. Furthermore, it was clearly shown that madanin 1 and 2 inhibited conversion of fibrinogen into fibrin by thrombin, thrombin-catalyzed activation of factor V and factor VIII, and thrombin-induced aggregation of platelets without affecting thrombin amidolytic activity. These results suggest that madanin 1 and 2 bind to the anion-binding exosite 1 on the thrombin molecule, but not to the active cleft, and interfere with the association of fibrinogen, factor V, factor VIII and thrombin receptor on platelets with an anion-binding exosite 1. They appear to be exosite 1-directed competitive inhibitors.  (+info)

Spotted fever group rickettsiae in ticks from the Masai Mara region of Kenya. (8/199)

We have identified for the first time Rickettsia africae, and the ticks that harbored them, in Kenya. A total of 5,325 ticks were collected from vegetation, livestock, and wild animals during two field trips to southwestern Kenya. Most were immature forms (85.2%) belonging to the genera Amblyomma or Rhipicephalus. The adults also included representatives from the genus Boophilus. Ticks were assessed for rickettsial DNA by a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using primers for the spotted fever group (SFG)-specific rickettsial outer membrane protein A (rompA) gene, and positive amplicons were sequenced. While none of the immature ticks tested positive by PCR, 15.8% of the adult Amblyomma variegatum and less than 1% of the Rhipicephalus spp. were SFG positive. Sequences of amplified products were identified as R. africae. These findings extend the known range of R. africae.  (+info)

Haemaphysalis longicornis also known as cattle tick or bush tick in New Zealand, or longhorned tick, It is a known livestock pest, especially in New Zealand, and can transmit a disease called Theileriosis to cattle but not to humans. The tick has been associated with several tickborne diseases in humans. The cattle tick is a tick established in temperate areas of East and Central Asia and pacific islands, including China, Korea and Japan, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii to name a few. The tick was not known to be present on the mainland U.S. until November 9 2017, when it was first discovered on a farm in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, though it had been collected in US ports on import animals and materials at least a dozen times prior. The seasonal feeding and reproductive cycle resembles that of other ticks. The tick can breed itself bisexually or by a process called parthenogenesis. The latter exist in Northern Japan and Russia, whereas the former exist in Southern Japan, ...
TUESDAY, July 31, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Deer ticks are scary enough. Now, scientists have linked bites from the lone star tick to about one-third of all potentially life-threatening allergic reactions around Tennessee.. A lone star tick bite can cause a severe immune system response to red meat -- such as beef, pork and lamb -- said study lead author Dr. Debendra Pattanaik.. Lone star ticks, or amblyomma americanum, are found in the eastern and southeastern United States, said Pattanaik, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.. This tick has become increasingly common in recent years, as have cases of anaphylaxis -- severe allergic reactions that can be fatal if untreated. Food allergies, bee stings and medications are the better-known causes of anaphylactic shock.. Pattanaik said its not clear why lone star ticks might cause anaphylaxis. However, experts think the problem may be a carbohydrate in the ticks saliva called alpha gal, he ...

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
The galactose-α-1,3-galactose (alpha-gal) allergy was identified following a drug trial of Cetuximab. The patients who reacted with anaphylaxis had all previously been bitten by the lone star tick. This led to the discovery of the alpha-gal antigen and the alpha-gal specific immunoglobulin E antibody (IgE). Research regarding the prevention of the alpha-gal allergy is extensive, and the development of a vaccine has been in progress. Much is still unknown regarding the way this allergy is transmitted to humans through ticks. Research is to be conducted in the Liberty University labs to investigate how the lone star tick causes sensitization to the alpha-gal antigen. Additional projects include determining the stage of tick development that the antigen is passed to humans, and identifying the reason only some people bitten by the lone star tick develop the allergy. The ultimate goal of this research is to aid in discovering a treatment for, or prevention of, the alpha-gal allergy.

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

Ticks are important vectors in the transmission of a broad range of micropathogens to vertebrates, including humans. Because of the role of ticks in disease transmission, identifying and characterizing the micropathogen profiles of tick populations have become increasingly important. The objective of this study was to survey the micropathogens of Hyalomma rufipes ticks. Illumina HiSeq2000 technology was utilized to perform deep sequencing of small RNAs (sRNAs) extracted from field-collected H. rufipes ticks in Gansu Province, China. The resultant sRNA library data revealed that the surveyed tick populations produced reads that were homologous to St. Croix River Virus (SCRV) sequences. We also observed many reads that were homologous to microbial and/or pathogenic isolates, including bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. As part of this analysis, a phylogenetic tree was constructed to display the relationships among the homologous sequences that were identified. The study offered a unique opportunity to gain

Discussion. The variability in the females pre-oviposition weight before immersion can be considered random and common to this species, since, under the same laboratory conditions, Faccini et al. (2010) completed the cycle of this tick and found significant variations in the weight of engorged females. However, a comparison of the mean weight of the females showed no statistically significant differences, thus eliminating any potential interference in the results.. The weight gain observed in A. auricularium females after different periods underwater, as has already been observed in other tick species (PAULA et al., 2000), can be explained by the flow of water into the body through the spiracles (SUTHERST, 1971). However, there may be a limit to this water flow, since the groups of A. auricularium females immersed for 48, 72 and 96 hours showed no difference in the average percentage of weight gain. It is likely that after about 48 hours underwater, A. auricularium females are already water ...

A recent study, as many are aware, performed PCR testing on stored sera of 52 patient samples from patients diagnosed with Lyme disease. Four were PCR positive. This underscores the problem with PCR. It has a low yield. If it were feasible to do 5-10 tests on every patient we would probably have a pretty good test. The finding are intriguing. Two of four, 50% were positive for Lyme as we know it, Borrelia burgdorderi. One was positive for B. Miyamotoi and one a novel species of Borrelia. The paradigm is changing. Lyme disease more often than not may be caused by species other than the one over which there has been so much fuss: B. burgdorferi. This is just where the story begins. A recent survey of a nearby park (Montgomery County, Maryland) was performed by Clongen (Dr. Kilani). His team collected 45 ticks. Two were dog tick and the rest were lone star ticks.

The buyer, Animal Supply Co., said in a statement that the purchase of Lone Star Pet will enable it to sell products from 300 manufacturers to 4,000 pet retail stores in 20 states, expanding its reach to six new states. Lone Star Pet now has 93 employees at its warehouse and offices on Triton Drive, and no layoffs are planned.
Lone star ticks, (Amblyoma americanum). are taking over. They now comprise more than 80% of the small black legged, hard bodied ticks found in the D.C metro area and elsewhere. These guys are very aggressive. They may be hard to distinguish from their deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) colleagues. Adult females are easy to spot: white spot on top. The shape and coloration is somewhat different. Take a careful look with a magnifying glass and compare to pix on google images. The CDC party line is: Lone stars do not transmit Lyme; they transmit STARI which is a mild disease and easy to treat. The CDC website states it is unknown wich bacteria causes the syndrome. The CDC website says Borrelia lonstari was a suspect but further research showed this not to be the case. This definitive research is the product of a small study published by Gary Wormser (name familiar) in 2005. Thirty EM rashes were examined for B. burdorferi (classic Lyme) and B. lonestari. Wormser did not find the genetic signature of ...

Although the Lone Star Tick (Amblyomma americanum) has been shown to transmit Lyme borreliosis (Borrelia americana and Borrelia andersonii), it can transmit other infections such as Ehrlichia and Tularemia.. In addition, victims bitten by the Lone Star Tick will occasionally develop a circular rash, similar to the rash of early Lyme disease. The rash may be accompanied by flu-like symptoms, and this condition has been named Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness (STARI). STARI is treated with oral antibiotics. Newer research is now associating a Lone Star Tick bite to a mammalian meat allergy.. ...
Spotted-fever-caused Rickettsia rickettsii infection is in Brazil the major tick-borne zoonotic disease. Recently, a second and milder human rickettsiosis caused by an agent genetically related to R. parkeri was discovered in the country (Atlantic rainforest strain). Both diseases clearly have an ecological background linked to a few tick species and their environment. Capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) and Amblyomma cajennense ticks in urban and rural areas close to water sources are the main and long-known epidemiological feature behind R. rickettsii-caused spotted-fever. Unfortunately, this ecological background seems to be increasing in the country and disease spreading may be foreseen. Metropolitan area of São Paulo, the most populous of the country, is embedded in Atlantic rainforest that harbors another important R. rickettsii vector, the tick Amblyomma aureolatum. Thus, at the city-forest interface, dogs carry infected ticks to human dwellings and human infection occurs. A role for R.
We found that 14.3% (15/105) of Amblyomma maculatum and 3.3% (10/299) of Dermacentor variabilis ticks collected at 3 high-use military training sites in west-central Kentucky and northern Tennessee, USA, were infected with Rickettsia parkeri and Rick ...

Canine ehrlichiosis is a disease of dogs and wild canids (e.g.; wolves) and is found worldwide. Canine ehrlichiosis is also known by other names such as tracker dog disease, tropical canine pancytopenia, canine hemorrhagic fever, and canine typhus. It affected a large number of military dogs in the war in Vietnam. What causes ehrlichiosis? Ehrlichiosis in dogs is most commonly caused by Ehrlichia canis, E. chaffeensis, E. ewingii, and possibly E. ruminantium. There are multiple strains of Ehrlichia, affecting different species of animals. Some also affect people. Some organisms that were formerly classified as Ehrlichia have now been reclassfied as Anaplasma. The Ehrlichia organisms are what we call rickettsia, which on the evolutionary scale are between bacteria and viruses. How is Ehrlichia transmitted? Ehrlichia are transmitted by ticks including the Brown Dog Tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and the Lone Star Tick Amblyomma americanum. The immature form of the tick feeds on an animal ...
In Vitro Effect of Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) Seed Extracts as a Biological Acaricidal Against Some Hard Tick (Ixodidae) in Sulaimani Governorate - Kurdistan Region/Iraq
ABSTRACT. The species composition and geographic distribution of ixodid ticks infesting domestic dogs owned by people in rural communities and villages in Maputo Province was established by collecting ticks from dogs at each of 27 localities spread throughout the province. Ticks were collected from a total of 132 dogs, and nine species belonging to four genera were identified. One dog was infested with six species, three with five and 13 with four species. Haemaphysalis elliptica followed by Rhipicephalus simus were present on dogs at most localities, and their geographic distribution in Maputo Province has been mapped for the first time.. Keywords: Dogs, geographic distribution, Haemaphysalis elliptica, ixodid ticks, Maputo Province, Mozambique, Rhipicephalus simus. ...
White-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus (Zimmermann), are a major host for the adult stage of the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis Say, and lone star tick, Amblyomma americanum L. The resurging population of deer in the twentieth century is linked to the emergence of multiple tick-borne pathogens associated with these and other tick species, particularly Lyme disease. Acaricides and parasiticides have long been the principal method for controlling ticks on domestic livestock, applied either topically or orally. The use and development of oral ivermectin and the passive topical treatment deer feeding station called the 4-poster for the control of the blacklegged tick on white-tailed deer is reviewed ...
Introduction. The ability of ticks to transmit pathogens to livestock and their direct effect on the health and condition of animals has resulted in great economic losses in various parts of the world. McCosker (1979) estimated the global costs of control and productivity losses as $7000 million annually ($7/head/annum). In a recent study carried out in Tanzania, it was estimated that the total annual national loss as a consequence of tick-borne diseases was $364 million with a mortality of 1.3 million cattle (Kivaria 2006).. The current methods of tick control rely heavily on chemical acaricides and repellents. These chemicals have numerous detrimental effects, including environmental pollution (Bhattacarya, Sarkar & Mukherjee 2003) and acaricide resistance (Li et al. 2003), promoting the search for novel compounds from alternative sources such as plants. Plants contain secondary metabolites that are frequently stored in specialised tissues, and which may have biological or repellent properties ...
The more scientists look into allergies, the more questions seem to rise. One mystery was solved, after all up the East Coast patients were reporting allergies to meat. Scientists found a lone star tick that spreads meat allergies to be the cause of the mystery.. A recent research from the University of Virginia shows that ticks are even more dangerous. Besides being responsible for the spread of Lyme disease and the Rocky Mountain spotted fever, the lone star tick has been linked to a meat allergy. Enjoying a juicy stake comes with the risk of itchy hives that appear within three to six hours. People will eat beef and then anywhere from three to six hours later start having a reaction; anything from hives to full-blown anaphylactic shock explains a researcher with the University of Virginia. The mysterious meat allergy has so far impacted over 1,500 people up the East Coast. Dr. Scott Commins, assistant professor of medicine with the University of Virginia, explained in a statement for CNN ...
Research has revealed that the bite of the lone star tick has now been linked to the development of an allergy to red meat. The brownish-red ticks known for their arrival alongside spring each year in the American Southeast are now also known for causing many to develop an allergy specifically to a sugar found in red meat known as alpha-gal. The allergy can generally be detected through a simple blood test.. Researchers from the University of Virginia collaborating with other professionals first identified the link between the tick bites and an allergy to red meat in 2009 and established a conclusion to that end in 2011. They found that following a bite from the lone star tick, patients typically developed at least 20 times the number of antibodies to the alpha-gal sugar than are present in someone that has not experienced such a bite. This increase leads to the increased release of histamines responsible for typical allergic reactions.. After years of curiosity about the possibility of such a ...
Doctors across the nation are seeing a surge of sudden meat allergies in people bitten by a certain kind of tick. In some cases, eating a burger or a steak has landed people in the hospital with severe allergic reactions. Researchers think some other types of ticks also might cause meat allergies; cases have been reported in Australia, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, Japan and Korea. [...] a tick bite triggers an immune system response, and in that high-alert state, the body perceives the sugar the tick transmitted to the victims bloodstream and skin as a foreign substance, and makes antibodies to it.
The Lone Star tick is found predominantly in the southeastern United States, and most cases of alpha-gal syndrome occur in this region. The condition appears to be spreading farther north and west, however, as deer carry the Lone Star tick to new parts of the United States. Alpha-gal syndrome also has been diagnosed in Europe, Australia, and Asia, where other types of ticks carry alpha-gal molecules.. Researchers now believe that some people who have frequent, unexplained anaphylactic reactions - and who test negative for other food allergies - may be affected by alpha-gal syndrome.- Mayo Clinic. Theres no treatment other than avoiding mammalian meat and by-products.. Avoiding tick bites is the key to prevention. Protect against tick bites by wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirts and using insect repellents when youre in wooded, grassy areas. Do a thorough, full-body tick check after spending time outside. -Mayo Clinic ...
Between hosts, the ticks undergo life cycle phases such as molting for the larvae and nymphs, and egg-laying for the adult females (Barré et al. 1995). These stages occur on the ground or on vegetation (Barré et al. 1995). All stages have the capability of surviving host-less in the environment for months to years depending on environmental conditions (Barré and Garris 1990, Pegram et al. 2004). Due to the ticks ability to survive in the environment for extended periods, it is recommended that livestock are not reintroduced into pasture that had been vacated in an attempt at eradication for a period of not less than 46 months (Barré and Garris 1990). Primary control of tropical bont tick is through the use of acaricides (Norval et al. 1992). Use of acaricides should coincide with the on-host phases of the tick and focus on areas of aggregation (Barré and Garris 1990). Some work has been done using a combination of pheromone and acaricides to help reduce the costs associated with the ...
Pseudomonas is a genus of bacteria commonly found in investigations of gut microbes in malaria mosquitoes. Among those mosquitoes is the dominating malaria vector in Asia, Anopheles stephensi, where Pseudomonas is a prevailing bacterium and natural inhabitant of its breeding places. In order to explore the reason for finding Pseudomonas so frequently, an investigation of its localization and transstadial properties was undertaken. A Pseudomonas isolate from An. stephensi was transformed successfully with an endogenous plasmid modified to express green fluorescent protein (GFP). Subsequently, the Pseudomonas-GFP was added to the laboratory larval breeding place of An. stephensi and taken up by the larvae. After 24 hours, the larvae were cleaned and moved to a bath with double-distilled water. Also, female adults were fed sugar solution containing Pseudomonas-GFP. The Pseudomonas-GFP was traced in the alimentary canal of larvae, pupae and adults. Fluorescent microscopy and PCR assays
One year ago today Peter Gleick posed as a Heartland insider to expose the evil nature of this institution. For the back story see: Heartland Institute: Hey Kids, Have a Smoke and Denial where I showed how Heartland was trying to undermine the science education being provided to our K-12 school children. Unfortunately, much of the news was focused on what Dr. Gleick did wrong and not what Heartland was doing wrong. As I wrote in Do Not Take Your Eyes Off Lex Luthor (Heartland Institute), Peter Gleick is a great man who made a mistake. The focus should NOT have been on him but on Heartland. It is easy to point the finger at Superman when he makes a mistake than it is to Lex Luthor who is expected to be the bad guy. ...

Many people are now afraid of the possibility of developing an allergy to mammal meat following a lone star tick bite. Thats because a single bite from this aggressive tick may render your body unable to recognize a carbohydrate found in mammal cell membranes called galactose-alpha-1, 3-galactose (alpha-gal). This allergy to meat sets off an immune response whenever alpha-gal is ingested. Eat a steak for dinner and youll likely wake in the night with hives, itching, vomiting, and diarrhea. In rare cases, anaphylaxis may occur. Diagnosis may be difficult since the allergy may not appear for days, weeks, or months after a tick bite. Making the condition worst is that there is no treatment. Currently, the only way to deal with alpha-gal syndrome is to avoid eating any type of meat. Poultry and seafood are perfectly safe, but it may take years for your body to be able to handle meat again, and its possible that you may never be able to eat meat again. ...

There is an established link between Lone Star tick bites and red meat allergy, but chiggers — or the Trombiculidae mite — may be another source of immunoglobulin E antibodies that contribute to this allergy, research published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology suggests. According to the researchers, chiggers bite hosts only while they are in the larval phase.
Like petrological phase space, the boundaries in climate space for climate proxies can be determined by experiment. For faunal and floral proxies such experiments are rarely pursued since any move outside of their climate space results, by definition, in death. In my thesis and the papers that followed (Markwick, 1996, 1998) I relied on a different approach, which used the modern distribution of each taxonomic group or assemblage to define at least part of the climate space. The assumption was that the distribution of these taxa was more or less in equilibrium with their environment and that the occurrence of a taxon did represent the presence of a viable, re-producing population. By intersecting these distributions with modern climate information (the last 30 years at least), I could define a basic climate space for each group ...
COLLEGE STATION - Everything is bigger and better in Texas. That is true of the competition at the adidas Texas 7v7 Championship that took place in College Station, Texas this past weekend.. Sixty-four Division II teams (Class 4A and under) from all over the Lone Star state arrived on Thursday to showcase what their teams have in store for the upcoming season.. Day One was pool play. The teams grabbing first and second place are moved into the championship bracket. Teams who fall to third and fourth place make their way to the consolation bracket. In past tournaments, it was standard for most of the four teams in each pool to finish 3-0, 2-1, 2-1 & 0-3 frequently. It was often very clear who were the stronger teams as of the 16 pools as many as 13 or 14 would end this way.. Of the 64 squads this year, only 6 managed a perfect 3-0 record during day one pool play - Sonora, Brock, China Spring, Carthage, McGregor and Kaufman. Surprisingly, some of the anticipated teams that were expected to make ...

The life cycle of Dermacentor albipictus lasts for about a year, and it is a single-host tick. This means that the entire life cycle of the tick (larvae, nymphs, and adults) progress on a single host animal.[2] First, in late summer larvae hatch from eggs. After lying dormant for some time, they start to ascend vegetation and to group in clusters on plants up to 1.25 m in height. This allows them to latch onto animals that pass by and begin to feed on their host. While on this host, the larvae go through the stages of nymph and then finally transform into an adult.[6] Addison and McLaughlin, in a 1988 study of ticks on young moose in captivity, reported that larvae became nymphs about 10 days after being applied to the moose. Nymphs then underwent a long diapause before becoming adults in roughly mid-February. One moose, which had been infected with larvae 37 days after the others, still showed a similar timing of adult ticks appearing. The authors suggest the diapause may serve to delay ...
Ticks generally are obligate blood feeders. All active stages (larvae, nymphs and adults) require blood as a source of nutrition (except for a few Argasid genera in which the adult mouthparts are non-functional, i.e. Antricola, Otobius and Nothoaspis). Adults also require the blood for sperm or egg production. The feeding process of Ixodid ticks has first a slow phase for several days followed by a fast phase in the last 12-24 hours before detachment. There may be a tenfold increase in fed: unfed weights by the end of the slow phase, but there is an additional tenfold increase by the end of the final fast phase. Leaving the full engorgement as late as possible reduces the chances of detection and removal by the host. The process of feeding is called engorging. The hypostome has a groove along its dorsal surface forming a food canal (also known as the preoral canal) through which blood is drawn from the host and passed on to the mouth and pharynx. During blood feeding by Ixodid ticks, the liquid ...

Ticks are important vectors of numerous human diseases and animal diseases. Feeding stimulates spermatogenesis, mating and insemination of male factors that trigger female reproduction. The physiology of male reproduction and its regulation of female development are essentially a black box. Several transcriptomes have catalogued expression of tick genes in the salivary glands, synganglion and midgut but no comprehensive investigation has addressed male reproduction and mating. Consequently, a new global approach using transcriptomics, proteomics, and quantitative gene expression is needed to understand male reproduction and stimulation of female reproduction. This first transcriptome to the reproductive biology of fed male ticks, Dermacentor variabilis, was obtained by 454 pyrosequencing (563,093 reads, 12,804 contigs). Gene Ontology (Biological Processes level III) recognized 3,866 transcripts in 73 different categories; spermiogenesis; spermatogenesis; peptidases, lipases and hydrolases; oxidative and
