[Ab] Resumo:Introduction: Ticks are non-permanent obligate parasites that have considerable medical-veterinary and zoonosis importance. In this regard a study designed to investigate the distribution and fauna of ticks in the Alashtar county in Iran from April and March 2014. Methods: Ticks were collected from livestock farms and facilities from selected rural and geographically location in the Alashtar county. Based morphological characteristics and reference identification keys, ticks were identified. Results: A total of 549 ticks including 411 hard and 138 soft ticks were found. Ten tick species including (0.36%), (0.36%), (0.18%), (0.18%), (1.45 %), (0.36%), (0.18%), (28.1%), (43.63%) and (25.2%) were identified. Tick seasonal distribution were 47.26%, 22.63%, 14.96% and 15.15% in the spring, summer, autumn and winter, respectively. The tick distribution was more from plain areas (64.96%) than the mountainous areas (35.04%). The rates of the tick contamination were 97.3% and 2.7% in the traditional and industrial livestock's, respectively. The livestock contamination ranks to the hard ticks were cattle (39.51%), sheep (34.15%) and goats (26.34 %), respectively. Chi-square analysis showed a significant difference among the seasonal distribution of the ticks in the spring, summer and autumn or winter; between the tick distribution in the plain and mountainous areas; and between the traditional and industrial livestock's tick contamination (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Present study proves to change the traditional livestock's to the industrial livestock's. These findings highlight the importance of ticks and shows need to their control and tick pest management.

[Ab] Resumo:Otobius megnini infests mainly domesticated and wild animals and occasionally humans. It has been identified as an agent of human and horse otoacariasis in Sri Lanka. The number of nymphal stages in the life cycle of O. megnini varies from one to three in different geographic regions. The present study determined the life cycle of O. megnini infesting the racehorses in Nuwara Eliya. A tick colony was initiated from fully engorged nymphs collected from horses and maintained at 10°C, 22°C and 28°C. Immature stages were reared on New Zealand rabbits. Only the larvae weighing more than 0.9mg (84.9%) moulted to nymphs with a pre-moulting period of 5.6(±1.7) days. None of the larvae maintained at 10±1°C moulted. Larval survival was significantly higher at 28±1°C (44.2±4.3days) than at 22±1°C (35.6±9days). At 28±1°C, majority of nymphs (95.6%) weighing over 10mg moulted into adults within 12.5(±3.1) days. Nymphs kept at 10±1°C underwent diapause for 81.1(±72.0) days. Larger females (>13mg; 93.0%) laid eggs for of 44.6(±17.8) days with a mean pre-oviposition period of 10.3(±5.1) days. Females survived longer (369.8±128.3days) than males (210.4±54.1days; Student's t-test; t=5.9, p=0.001). Some females laid eggs without mating. Otobius megnini successfully completed the life cycle within 123days and has only one nymphal instar similar to the Neotropical population. Currently, O. megnini infestation is a serious problem to horses in the Nuwara Eliya racecourse and may pose a risk of spreading to dairy farms close by owing to its dynamic nature of the life cycle.

[Ab] Resumo:A vast number of novel tick-related microorganisms and tick-borne disease agents have been identified in the past 20 years, and more are being described due to several factors, from the curiosity of clinicians faced with unusual clinical syndromes to new tools used by microbiologists and entomologists. Borrelioses, ehrlichioses, anaplasmosis, and tick-borne rickettsial diseases are some of the emerging diseases that have been described throughout the world in recent years. In this article, we focus on the bacterial agents and diseases that have been recognized in the past 3 years and refer to major recent reviews of other recognized infections.

[Ab] Resumo:Ornithodoros atacamensis n. sp. is described from larvae collected on the lizard Liolaemus bisignatus and from free-living adults collected in desert areas from the Pan de Azúcar and Llanos de Challe National Parks, in Northern Chile. Additionally, unengorged larvae were obtained from fertilized females, which laid eggs in the laboratory. Morphological and mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequence analyses were performed in order to compare this new soft tick species with other congeneric Neotropical representatives. Larvae of O. atacamensis are morphologically closely related to Ornithodoros talaje sensu stricto, Ornithodoros puertoricensis, Ornithodoros rioplatensis, Ornithodoros guaporensis and Ornithodoros hasei, all belonging to the O. talaje species group. The larval diagnostic characters for this species are a combination of a large pyriform dorsal plate with a length of approximately 300µm, 17 pairs of dorsal setae with five central pairs, hypostome with apex pointed and dental formula 2/2 in most rows, 3/3 apically, and capsule of the Haller's organ oval in shape without reticulations. Phylogenetic analyses inferred from the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene and a Principal Component Analysis based on morphometric characters provide additional support to the description of O. atacamensis as an independent lineage within the genus clustering within the O. talaje species group.

[Ab] Resumo:Larvae, nymphs and adults of the cave dwelling tick Ornithodoros dyeri, collected in 3 Mexican states, were studied using morphological and molecular methods. The adults and nymphs were characterized by an elongated body in proportion to the width and a dorsum bounded by two contiguous ridges and one third ridge (inner) that was incomplete on each side. The larvae of this species have 14 pairs of dorsal setae, a venter body with nine pairs of setae plus a posteromedian; a moderately large, dorsal plate and piriform, a hypostome arising from a relatively short, subtriangular median extension of the basis capituli, and a capsule of Hallers organ with reticulations. Based on a maximum likelihood analysis of the sequences of a fragment of approximately 414bp of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene, we showed that O. dyeri represents an independent lineage within neotropical species of the Argasidae. The bat species Mimon cozumelae and Peropteryx macrotis represents a new host record for this argasid.

[Ab] Resumo:Otobius megnini is a one host, nidicolous soft tick (Family Argasidae) whose larvae and nymphs parasitize the external ear canal of many wild and domestic animals and occasionally humans. The present study was conducted to determine the seasonal dynamics of O. megnini infesting stabled horses in Nuwara Eliya racecourses. Ticks were sampled biweekly for two years from May 2013 to May 2015 from the ear canal of seven thoroughbred male horses. Weather data: temperature, rainfall and humidity for the study period were obtained from the Meteorological Department, Colombo. A total of 23, 287 ticks of O. megnini were collected from the ear canal of horses and all of which were immature stages comprising 41.4% larvae and 59.6% nymphs. Larval counts were high during warmer months of the year with minimum numbers recording September-November. High larval abundance may be due to the high hatching rate of eggs at high temperatures. Larval abundance was significantly affected by maximum temperature, minimum relative humidity and average relative humidity (Multiple regression; r(2)=0.5, F=3.7, p=0.01). Population peaks for nymphs occurred in May, October and January. Nymph counts were low in March and April. Weather conditions did not have any correlation with the abundance of nymphs. Rainfall had no effect on both larvae and nymph counts. Even though control measures have been taken, O. megnini infestation is a serious problem for the stable owners especially because these horses are used in racing and other recreational purposes. Further, there is a high risk of spreading this tick within the country due to the presence of suitable hosts and the adaptability of the tick to survive in changing climatic conditions. Information on the seasonal dynamics of the tick population is important for employing control measures.

[Ab] Resumo:Knowledge about soft ticks (Ixodida: Argasidae) in Sardinia is incomplete and distribution data need to be updated. This work studies soft ticks on the island focusing on two species, Argas reflexus and Ornithodoros maritimus, both recently recorded. A total number of 12 specimens of these species of interest were collected between 2004 and 2015. This study reports for the first time the presence of O. maritimus in a coastal area in Italy, and more generally in a coastal area rather than small islands near the coastline, confirming the presence of this species on the island 20 years after its last recording. Moreover we confirm the presence of A. reflexus on the island, in the town of Cagliari and, for the first time, in the town of Quartu Sant'Elena. At the present state of knowledge, in Sardinia, Ornithodoros erraticus, which was actively looked for within the surveillance for African swine fever, an endemic disease since 1978 on the island, is not present. The presence of another species reported only once in Sardinia, Argas vespertilionis, needs further confirmation.

[Ab] Resumo:INTRODUCTION: Otoacariasis, the attachment of ticks and mites within the ear canal is a common phenomenon especially in rural areas. OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical and demographic features of cases with detected ticks in the ear canal, which is a common health problem, and identify tick species. METHODS: Data of patients who had otoacariasis were collected. We also investigated all ticks at the Veterinary Department of Kafkas University. RESULTS: We present the data of patients with otoacariasis. All ticks were identified as otobius. Otobius ticks were found not related with any complications. CONCLUSION: It is very important to detect ticks in the ear canal as they act as vector of some diseases. Identifying species of ticks may help clinicians to prevent further complications associated with vector-borne diseases.

[Ab] Resumo:Argasid ticks are vectors of viral and bacterial agents that can infect humans and animals. In Africa, relapsing fever borreliae are neglected arthropod-borne pathogens that cause mild to deadly septicemia and miscarriage. It would be incredibly beneficial to be able to simultaneous detect and identify other pathogens transmitted by Argasid ticks. From 2012 to 2014, we conducted field surveys in 4 distinct areas of Algeria. We investigated the occurrence of soft ticks in rodent burrows and yellow-legged gull (Larus michahellis) nests in 10 study sites and collected 154 soft ticks. Molecular identification revealed the occurrence of two different soft tick genera and five species, including Carios capensis in yellow-legged gull nests and Ornithodoros occidentalis, Ornithodoros rupestris, Ornithodoros sonrai, Ornithodoros erraticus in rodent burrows. Rickettsial DNA was detected in 41/154, corresponding to a global detection rate of 26.6%. Sequences of the citrate synthase (gltA) gene suggest that this agent is a novel spotted fever group Rickettsia. For the first time in Algeria, we characterize a novel Rickettsia species by molecular means in soft ticks.

[Ti] Título:The IS1111 insertion sequence used for detection of Coxiella burnetii is widespread in Coxiella-like endosymbionts of ticks.

[Ab] Resumo:Coxiella is a genus of obligate intracellular bacteria engaged in a variety of interactions with eukaryotes. The type species, Coxiella burnetii, infects several vertebrate species, including humans, and is the causative agent of Q fever. Multiple copies of a specific transposable element, the insertion sequence IS1111, are present in the genome of C. burnetii and are routinely used for confirmation of Q fever cases. Recently, many Coxiella-like bacteria that are closely related but genetically distinct to C. burnetii have been found in ticks. These Coxiella-like bacteria are maternally inherited endosymbionts, present at high prevalence in tick populations and engaged in mutualistic interactions with their arthropod hosts. In this study, the presence of IS1111 was examined in the Coxiella-like endosymbionts and in bacteria of the Coxiella sister-genus, Rickettsiella. This screening reveals that a wide range of IS1111 copies were present in the Coxiella-like endosymbionts of ticks. DNA sequencing further identified genetically divergent IS1111 copies, including degraded copies that constitute an important genomic fossil record of past IS1111 expansions. These results show that IS1111 is not specific to C. burnetii, suggesting that Q fever detection assays based only on this element may lead to misidentification with Coxiella-like endosymbionts.
