bartonella tamiae sp. nov., a newly recognized pathogen isolated from three human patients from thailand.three strains of a novel bartonella species (bartonella tamiae) were isolated from human patients from thailand. sequence analysis of six chromosomal regions (16s rrna, glta, groel, ftsz, rpob, and the intergenic spacer region) and phenotypical analysis supported the similarity of the three strains and placed them within the genus bartonella separately from previously described species.200818077632
detection of two bartonella tamiae-like sequences in amblyomma americanum (acari: ixodidae) using 16s-23s intergenic spacer region-specific primers.four hundred and sixty-six questing amblyomma americanum (l.) (acari: ixodidae) from carolina county, va, and 98 questing a. americanum from chatham county, nc, were screened by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for the bartonella 16s-23s intergenic spacer region. two amplicons, approximately 270-280 bp, were detected in two ticks from virginia. based upon pcr and sequencing, an adult male and adult female tick harbored dna sequences closely related to bartonella tamiae (dq395180). bartonella dna ...200818283962
detection of bartonella tamiae dna in ectoparasites from rodents in thailand and their sequence similarity with bacterial cultures from thai patients.ectoparasites, including chigger mites (genera leptotrombidium, schoengastia, and blankarrtia) and one tick (genus haemaphysalis) collected from wild-caught rodents in thailand, were assessed for the presence of bartonella dna by using a polymerase chain reaction assay targeting the 16s-23s intergenic spacer region and citrate synthase gene (glta). of the 41 pooled samples tested, 34 were positive for bartonella dna. sequence analysis demonstrated that dna detected in 33 chigger mite pools and o ...201020017718
human isolates of bartonella tamiae induce pathology in experimentally inoculated immunocompetent mice.bartonella tamiae, a newly described bacterial species, was isolated from the blood of three hospitalized patients in thailand. these patients presented with headache, myalgia, anemia, and mild liver function abnormalities. since b. tamiae was presumed to be the cause of their illness, these isolates were inoculated into immunocompetent mice to determine their relative pathogenicity in inducing manifestations of disease and pathology similar to that observed in humans.201020673363
combining culture techniques for bartonella: the best of both this study we compared some common bartonella culturing methodologies using four diverse species causing human illnesses. based on a review of the literature, we focused on three major inconsistencies between protocols: base medium, cell coculture, and temperature. our data showed that bartonella tamiae demonstrated temperature-dependent growth limitations between common culturing conditions only 2°c apart. additionally, growth of b. quintana was significantly enhanced by the presence of mamm ...201121289156
detection of bartonella tamiae, coxiella burnetii and rickettsiae in arthropods and tissues from wild and domestic animals in northeastern recent years, the scope and importance of emergent vector-borne diseases has increased dramatically. in algeria, only limited information is currently available concerning the presence and prevalence of these zoonotic diseases. for this reason, we conducted a survey of hematophagous ectoparasites of domestic mammals and/or spleens of wild animals in el tarf and souk ahras, algeria.201626791781
genomic changes associated with the evolutionary transition of an insect gut symbiont into a blood-borne pathogen.the genus bartonella comprises facultative intracellular bacteria with a unique lifestyle. after transmission by blood-sucking arthropods they colonize the erythrocytes of mammalian hosts causing acute and chronic infectious diseases. although the pathogen-host interaction is well understood, little is known about the evolutionary origin of the infection strategy manifested by bartonella species. here we analyzed six genomes of bartonella apis, a honey bee gut symbiont that to date represents th ...201728234349
