Serologic cross-reactions among Ehrlichia equi, Ehrlichia phagocytophila, and human granulocytic Ehrlichia.
Homology in the 16S rDNAs shows that the agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE) is closely related to the veterinary pathogens Erlichia equi and Erlichia phagocytophila. After HGE, patientsExpand

Ixodes pacificus (Acari: Ixodidae) as a vector of Ehrlichia equi (Rickettsiales: Ehrlichieae).
Ehrlichia equi, a rickettsia described from horses in California 30 yr ago, causes equine granulocytic ehrlichiosis throughout the Americas and possibly Europe. Here, we report experimentalExpand

Motility of Lyme disease spirochetes in fluids as viscous as the extracellular matrix.
When properties of extracellular fluids that might regulate the ability of the Lyme disease spirochete to locomote were investigated, the rate of progression correlated with viscoelasticity. SuchExpand

Variation in Developmental Time for Geographically Distinct Populations of the Common Green Bottle Fly, Lucilia sericata (Meigen) *
Abstract:  Time between death and discovery of remains, or postmortem interval (PMI), can be assessed using blow fly maggot age. Forensic entomologists rely on published, often nonlocal,Expand

Transmission and passage in horses of the agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis.
The human granulocytotropic ehrlichia and Ehrlichia equi produce similar diseases in their respective host species (humans, horses). Currently, the phylogenetic and biologic relationships of these 2Expand

Quantitative Evaluation of Ehrlichial Burden in Horses after Experimental Transmission of Human Granulocytic Ehrlichia Agent by Intravenous Inoculation with Infected Leukocytes and by Infected Ticks
ABSTRACT This paper describes the kinetics of the human granulocytic ehrlichiosis agent in the blood of horses experimentally infected by intravenous inoculation with infected leukocytes and byExpand

Vaccination against Lyme disease caused by diverse Borrelia burgdorferi
Diversity and mutations in the genes for outer surface proteins (Osps) A and B of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (B. burgdorferi), the spirochetal agent of Lyme disease, suggests that a monovalentExpand

Experimental Transmission of Ehrlichia equi to Horses through Naturally Infected Ticks (Ixodes pacificus) from Northern California
ABSTRACT We report the experimental transmission of Ehrlichia equi from naturally infected Ixodes pacificus ticks to horses. Three weeks after exposure to ticks, two of three horses developedExpand
