Genetic features of DNA of Borrelia miyamotoi transmitted by Ixodes persulcatus

Abstract

16S rRNA, p66 and glpQ gene fragments in Borrelia miyamotoi transmitted by Ixodes persulcatus are determined and analyzed. Specific nucleotide sequences of every locus have been shown to be identical. The highest homology level for nucleotide sequences of three loci has been shown for the sequences of strains isolated earlier in Japan. An analysis of the… (More)
