Tick saliva contains pharmacologically active molecules that allow these parasites to obtain a blood meal from the host and facilitate host infection by tick-borne pathogens. Recent transcriptomic and proteomic analyses of the salivary glands of several tick species have provided data sets that are invaluable for a better understanding of tick sialomes and tick-host-pathogen relationships. Here we performed a proteomic study of the saliva from the argasid tick Ornithodoros moubata. Saliva… CONTINUE READING
