Soft ticks are medically important ectoparasites of birds and mammals that are found throughout the world. This report describes isolation and partial characterization of two embryonic cell lines, CCE2 and CCE3, from the seabird soft tick Carios capensis (Neumann). Sequencing of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene and karyology confirmed the lines were derived from C. capensis. CCE3 cells were diploid with a modal chromosome number of 20. The population doubling time for cell lines CCE2 and 3 in… CONTINUE READING
