the expanding lyme borrelia complex--clinical significance of genomic species?ten years after the discovery of spirochaetes as agents of lyme disease in 1982 in the usa, three genomic species had diverged from the phenotypically heterogeneous strains of borrelia burgdorferi isolated in north america and europe: borrelia afzelii, b. burgdorferi sensu stricto (further b. burgdorferi), and borrelia garinii. whereas b. burgdorferi remained the only human pathogen in north america, all three species are aetiological agents of lyme borreliosis in europe. another seven genospeci ...201121414082
prevalence of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in ticks from eastern china.to explore the tick distribution and prevalence of borrelia in zhejiang province, we performed a survey in nine sites. a total of 447 adult ticks of 11 species were captured and the dominant tick species were haemaphysalis longicornis and ixodes sinensis and the abundance of tick species in different areas varied significantly. overall, 4.70% of the ticks were polymerase chain reaction (pcr) positive for borrelia. the average pcr positive rates were 5.19% for h. longicornis, 3.45% for amblyomma ...201525548382
borrelia yangtzensis sp. nov. a rodent associated species in asia is related to b. valaisiana.twenty nine isolates of lyme borreliosis (lb) group spirochetes collected from ticks and rodents in china and japan were included into multilocus sequence analysis (mlsa). using a different typing system, three of these strains had previously been identified as being divergent from other lb spirochete species and the name "borrelia yangtze" sp. nov. was proposed. the data presented here confirm that the genetic distance calculated using sequences of mlsa housekeeping genes to other known lb grou ...201526239825
