detection of anaplasma phagocytophilum dna in ixodes ticks (acari: ixodidae) from madeira island and setubal district, mainland portugal.a total of 278 ixodes ticks, collected from madeira island and setubal district, mainland portugal, were examined by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for the presence of anaplasma phagocytophilum. six (4%) of 142 ixodes ricinus nymphs collected in madeira island and 1 nymph and 1 male (2%) of 93 i. ventalloi collected in setubal district tested positive for a. phagocytophilum msp2 genes or rrs. infection was not detected among 43 i. ricinus on mainland portugal. all pcr products were confirmed by ...200415498168
detection of borrelia lusitaniae, rickettsia sp. irs3, rickettsia monacensis, and anaplasma phagocytophilum in ixodes ricinus collected in madeira island, portugal.a total of 300 ixodes ricinus ticks were tested by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for the presence of borrelia spp., rickettsia spp., and anaplasma phagocytophilum. sequence analysis demonstrated 8 (2.7%) ticks infected with b. lusitaniae, 60 (20%) with rickettsia spp., and 1 (0.3%) with a. phagocytophilum. seven (2.3%) ticks were coinfected with b. lusitaniae and rickettsia spp., 2 (0.6%) with r. monacensis, and 5 (1.7%) with rickettsia sp. irs3. the results of this study suggest simultaneous ...200818454598
pcr-based survey of anaplasma phagocytophilum in portuguese ticks (acari: ixodidae).a total of two-thousand and six ticks, collected from 2002 to 2006 in areas belonging to seven districts of mainland portugal and also in madeira island, were examined by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for the presence of anaplasma phagocytophilum. active infections were detected exclusively in ixodes species, including six questing i. ricinus nymphs from madeira island, one questing i. ventalloi nymph from setúbal district, and two i. ventalloi adults found parasitizing domestic cats in both s ...200818781886
detection of antibodies against anaplasma phagocytophilum in algerian mice (mus spretus), portugal.the recent detection of anaplasma phagocytophilum in portugal stimulated further research on the agent's enzootic cycle, which usually involves rodents. thus a total 322 rodents belonging to five species, including 30 apodemus sylvaticus (wood mouse), 65 mus musculus (house mouse), 194 m. spretus (algerian mouse), 5 rattus norvegicus (brown rat) and 28 r. rattus (black rat), were studied by indirect immunofluorescent assay (ifa) and/or polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for a. phagocytophilum expos ...200918973448
