This study demonstrates the involvement of a large number of salivary proteins in the acquisition of resistance to Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum. Using immunoblotting, sera from hypersensitized rabbits were shown to react with nine proteins in the saliva and 17 in salivary gland extracts (SGE) from 96 h fed female ticks. The salivary antigens had molecular weights in the range of 14 400 to 130 000. All the antigens identified in the saliva and 12 of the SGE antigens were glycoprotein in nature… CONTINUE READING
