Diversity unearthed by the estimated molecular phylogeny and ecologically quantitative characteristics of uncultured Ehrlichia bacteria in Haemaphysalis ticks, Japan
This study aimed to conduct a molecular-based taxonomic and ecological characterization of uncultured Ehrlichia species or genotypes from ticks in Japan by surveyed 616 Haemaphysalis ticks by p28 -PCR screening and analyzed five additional housekeeping genes from 11 p28-PCR-positive ticks.
Molecular Characterization of Rickettsial Agents in Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) from Sri Lanka
Several of the agents identified in this survey may well be pathogenic for humans and domestic animals, and should be considered as a part of epidemiological surveillance and patient management.
Molecular Survey of Anaplasmataceae Agents and Coxiellaceae in Non-Hematophagous Bats and Associated Ectoparasites from Brazil
The present work shows, for the first time, the occurrence of Anaplasmataceae in bats and associated ectoparasites (ticks, mites, and bat flies) from Brazil.

Novel Genetic Variants of Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Anaplasma bovis, Anaplasma centrale, and a Novel Ehrlichia sp. in Wild Deer and Ticks on Two Major Islands in Japan
The results suggest that enzootic cycles of Ehrlichia and Anaplasma species distinct from those found in the United States or Europe have been established in wild deer and ticks in Japan.
Genetic diversity of Anaplasma and Ehrlichia in the Asian part of Russia.
Bacterial Profiling Reveals Novel “Ca. Neoehrlichia”, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma Species in Australian Human-Biting Ticks
The microbial communities harboured by human-biting ticks from across Australia to identify bacteria that may contribute to Lyme disease-like illness in human patients remains elusive, and phylogenetic analysis of novel “Ca. Neoehrlichia”, Anaplasma and EHRlichia based on 1,265 bp 16S rRNA gene sequences suggests that these are new species.
Genetic variability of anaplasmataceae bacteria determined in Haemaphysalis spp. and Dermacentor sp. Ticks on the territory of the Russian Far East
Examination of Anaplasmataceae bacteria collected in Amur oblast and Khabarovsk krai of the Russian Far East revealed atypical bacteria that significantly differed from each other and did not form a separate genetic group on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequences.
New genetic variants of Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Anaplasma bovis from Korean water deer (Hydropotes inermis argyropus).
This is the first report of A. phagocytophilum and A. bovis in KWD, suggesting that they may act as reservoirs for anaplasmosis zoonotic pathogens.
Novel Borrelia species detected in echidna ticks, Bothriocroton concolor, in Australia
The present study investigates the presence of Borrelia in 97 Bothriocroton concolor ticks parasitizing echidnas in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria, Australia, and concludes that the phylogenetic analysis of the partial 16S gene sequences suggests it forms a unique monophyletic cluster in the genus BorrelIA, potentially forming a fourth major group in this genus associated with monotremes in Australia.
Inhibition of the endosymbiont “Candidatus Midichloria mitochondrii” during 16S rRNA gene profiling reveals potential pathogens in Ixodes ticks from Australia
A CMM-specific blocking primer was designed that decreased CMM sequences by approximately 96 % in both tick species and significantly increased the total detectable bacterial diversity, allowing identification of medically important bacterial pathogens that were previously masked by CMM.
Transovarial Transmission of Francisella-Like Endosymbionts and Anaplasma phagocytophilum Variants in Dermacentor albipictus (Acari: Ixodidae)
The transovarial transmission of A. phagocytophilum variant-1 associated with Ixodes scapularis ticks and white-tailed deer as well as that of the human-pathogenic A. albipictus may not be solely dependent on horizontal transmission.
Molecular Detection of Tick-Borne Rickettsiales in Goats and Sheep from Southeastern China.
Members from Rickettsiales such as Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, and some spotted fever group (SFG) Rickettsiae are important tick-borne pathogens and the risk of contracting the pathogens upon tick exposure is highlighted.
