isolation of candidatus bartonella melophagi from human blood.candidatus bartonella melophagi was isolated by blood culture from 2 women, 1 of whom was co-infected with b. henselae. partial 16s rrna, rna polymerase b, and citrate synthase genes and 16s-23s internal transcribed spacer sequences indicated that human isolates were similar to candidatus b. melophagi.200919116054
identification of different bartonella species in the cattle tail louse (haematopinus quadripertusus) and in cattle blood.bartonella spp. are worldwide-distributed facultative intracellular bacteria that exhibit an immense genomic diversity across mammal and arthropod hosts. the occurrence of cattle-associated bartonella species was investigated in the cattle tail louse haematopinus quadripertusus and in dairy cattle blood from israel. lice were collected from cattle from two dairy farms during summer 2011, and both lice and cow blood samples were collected from additional seven farms during the successive winter. ...201424973066
molecular survey of arthropod-borne pathogens in sheep keds (melophagus ovinus), central the study, we screened a total of 399 adult sheep keds (melophagus ovinus) for the presence of rna and dna specific for arboviral, bacterial, and protozoan vector-borne pathogens. all investigated keds were negative for flaviviruses, phleboviruses, bunyaviruses, borrelia burgdorferi, rickettsia spp., anaplasma phagocytophilum, "candidatus neoehrlichia mikurensis," and babesia spp. all ked pools were positive for bartonella dna. the sequencing of the amplified fragments of the glta and 16s-23s ...201627325400
bartonella melophagi in blood of domestic sheep (ovis aries) and sheep keds (melophagus ovinus) from the southwestern us: cultures, genetic characterization, and ecological connections.bartonella melophagi sp. nov. was isolated from domestic sheep blood and from sheep keds (melophagus ovinus) from the southwestern united states. the sequence analyses of the reference strain performed by six molecular markers consistently demonstrated that b. melophagi relates to but differ from other bartonella species isolated from domestic and wild ruminants. presence of 183 genes specific for b. melophagi, being absent in genomes of other bartonella species associated with ruminants also su ...201627283855
bartonella melophagi in melophagus ovinus (sheep ked) collected from sheep in northern oromia, ethiopia.melophagus ovinus (sheep ked) is one of the most common ectoparasites that contributes to enormous economic losses in the productivity of sheep in many countries. the present study was conducted from january 2012 to july 2013 on m. ovinus collected from sheep at three sites in ethiopia. of the sheep studied, 65.7% (88/134) were infested with m. ovinus. the prevalence of m. ovinus was 76% (76/100), 47% (8/17) and 23.5% (4/17) at the kimbibit, chacha and shano sites, respectively. an overall numbe ...201424326024
