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
molecular epidemiological surveillance to assess emergence and re-emergence of tick-borne infections in tick samples from china evaluated by nested investigation was performed to detect eight pathogens in ticks collected from grass tips or animals in the southern, central and northeast regions of china. dna samples extracted from ticks were collected from ten different locations in eight provinces of china and subjected to screening for tick-borne pathogens, including borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, ehrlichia spp., rickettsia spp., babesia/theileria spp., ehrlichia ruminantium, coxiella burnetii, and francisella tularensis, using nested ...201626943995
