Morphological changes in human neural cells following tick-borne encephalitis virus infection.
Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is one of the leading and most dangerous human viral neuroinfections in Europe and north-eastern Asia. The clinical manifestations include asymptomatic infections,Expand
Hepatozoon and Theileria species detected in ticks collected from mammals and snakes in Thailand.
We report the detection of Hepatozoon and Theileria in 103 ticks from mammals and snakes in Thailand. By using a genus-specific 18S rRNA PCR, Hepatozoon and Theileria spp. were detected in 8% andExpand
Detection of Coxiella-like endosymbiont in Haemaphysalis tick in Thailand.
In this study, we focused on the molecular detection of Coxiella-like bacteria using a PCR technique to identify Coxiella 16S rRNA sequences in Haemaphysalis tick samples (105 adults, 8 nymph poolsExpand
Detection of Rickettsia and Anaplasma from Hard Ticks in Thailand
ABSTRACT: We collected a total of 169 adult hard ticks and 120 nymphs from under the leaves of plants located along tourist nature trails in ten localities. The results present data examining theExpand
Hard ticks and their bacterial endosymbionts (or would be pathogens)
The symbiotic microorganisms of arthropod vectors are highly significant from several points of view, partly due to their possible roles in the transmission of pathogenic causative agents byExpand
Molecular detection of Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Coxiella and Francisella bacteria in ticks collected from Artiodactyla in Thailand.
A total of 79 ticks collected from Sambar deer (Cervus unicolor), Barking deer (Muntiacus muntjak) and Wild boar (Sus scrofa) were examined by PCR for the presence of Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Coxiella,Expand
Relative Wolbachia density of field-collected Aedes albopictus mosquitoes in Thailand
ABSTRACT Female Aedes albopictus mosquitoes from natural populations of different geographical regions of Thailand were collected and allowed to oviposit to determine relative Wolbachia A andExpand
Detection of Rickettsia and a Novel Haemaphysalis shimoga Symbiont Bacterium in Ticks in Thailand
In this study, we identified two Haemaphysalis species present at the Khao Yai National Park in Thailand and investigated the presence of rickettsia in these ticks. A total of 166 HaemaphysalisExpand
Rickettsia sp. Closely Related to Rickettsia raoultii (Rickettsiales: Rickettsiaceae) in an Amblyomma helvolum (Acarina: Ixodidae) Tick from a Varanus salvator (Squamata: Varanidae) in Thailand
ABSTRACT An engorged female Amblyomma helvolum Koch tick was removed from an adult Varanus salvator Laurenti lizard during field collection in Thailand. After using polymerase chain reaction toExpand
PirAB Toxin from Photorhabdus asymbiotica as a Larvicide against Dengue Vectors
ABSTRACT We have evaluated Photorhabdus insect-related protein (Pir) from Photorhabdus asymbiotica against dengue vectors. PirAB shows larvicidal activity against both Aedes aegypti and AedesExpand
