detection of microbial agents in ticks collected from migratory birds in central italy.tick species characterization and molecular studies were performed within ornithological surveys conducted during 2010 and 2011 in the lazio region of central italy. a total of 137 ticks were collected from 41 migratory birds belonging to 17 species (four partial migrants and 13 long-distance migrants). most ticks were nymphs, with a predominance of hyalomma marginatum marginatum and h. m. rufipes, and a small portion of ixodes and amblyomma species. all tick species analyzed were infected, and ...201424576218
molecular investigation of francisella-like endosymbiont in ticks and francisella tularensis in ixodid ticks and mosquitoes in turkey.this study was carried out to investigate the molecular prevalence of francisella-like endosymbionts (fles) and francisella tularensis in ticks (acari: ixodidae) and mosquitoes in turkey. genomic dna pools were constructed from a total of 1477 adult hard ticks of rhipicephalus (rh.) annulatus, rh. turanicus, rh. sanguineus, rh. bursa, haemaphysalis (hae.) parva, hae. sulcata, hyalomma marginatum marginatum, h. anatolicum anatolicum, h. anatolicum excavatum, h. detritum detritum, h. dromedarii, d ...201626741324
detection of francisella-like endosymbiont in hyalomma rufipes from ethiopia.the expanding family of francisellaceae includes the genus francisella, where several pathogen bacteria, e.g. the zoonotic f. tularensis, and different francisella-like agents belong to. francisella-like endosymbionts (fles) are widespread in hard and soft ticks and their pathogenicity is unknown. the examination of 296 ticks collected in ethiopia was performed for the detection of f. tularensis and fles using polymerase chain reaction (pcr) assays based on the amplification of 16s rrna, sdha an ...201425108781
