detection of francisella tularensis in ticks and identification of their genotypes using multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis.tularemia was reported in china over 50 years ago, however, many epidemical characteristics remain unclear. in the present study, the prevalence of francisella tularensis in ticks was investigated during an epidemiological surveillance in china and then we measured their genetic diversity by conducting multiple-locus variable- number tandem repeat analysis (mlva).200818798995
francisella tularensis in rodents, china.a total of 420 rodents in china were examined for francisella tularensis by polymerase chain reaction. the infection rates were 4.76% in total, and 11.65%, 10.00%, 6.56%, 1.77%, and 0% in jilin, xinjiang, heilongjiang, inner mongolia, and zhejiang, respectively. sequence analysis showed that all the detected agents belonged to f. tularensis subsp. holarctica.200616707060
