Diversity of Coxiella-like and Francisella-like endosymbionts, and Rickettsia spp., Coxiella burnetii as pathogens in the tick populations of Slovakia, Central Europe.
Functional role of 64P, the candidate transmission-blocking vaccine antigen from the tick, Rhipicephalus appendiculatus.
ANTIDotE: anti-tick vaccines to prevent tick-borne diseases in Europe
ANTIDotE is an European Commission funded consortium of seven institutes, which aims to identify and characterize tick proteins involved in feeding and pathogen transmission, to develop and evaluate anti-tick vaccines that may prevent multiple human tick-borne diseases.
Non-viraemic transmission of tick-borne viruses.
For TBEV at least, NVT is an important mechanism of virus maintenance in nature and offers explanations for some specific aspects of tick-borne virus ecology such as focal virus distribution and vector competency of particular tick species.

This work describes the first association between LIV and clinical encephalitis in chamois, which suggests that special attention should be paid to the impact onChamois conservation and management in Asturias, and perhaps in other European regions.
Nuclease Tudor-SN Is Involved in Tick dsRNA-Mediated RNA Interference and Feeding but Not in Defense against Flaviviral or Anaplasma phagocytophilum Rickettsial Infection
It is demonstrated that Tudor-SN plays a role in tick RNAi pathway and feeding but no strong evidence for a roles in innate immune responses to pathogen infection was found.
Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus Structural Proteins Are the Primary Viral Determinants of Non-Viraemic Transmission between Ticks whereas Non-Structural Proteins Affect Cytotoxicity
Using laboratory-bred I. ricinus ticks, low and high efficiency NVT are demonstrated for TBEV strains Vasilchenko (Vs) and Hypr, respectively, indicating that the virion structural proteins largely determine T BEV NVT transmission efficiency between ticks.
Immunization with recombinant subolesin does not reduce tick infection with tick-borne encephalitis virus nor protect mice against disease.

Analysis of the predicted structure of I. ricinus ML-domain containing protein and its localization in the tick body could suggest that IrML is a secreted protein and is possibly involved in tick innate immunity.
the role of the struCtural proteins in the non-viraemiC transmission of ti C k-borne en C ephalitis virus
It is claimed that 3 out of 4 people infected with Flavivirus believe that the virus is caused byenza, while the rest believe that it is a result of natural causes.
