Molecular Survey of Anaplasmataceae Agents and Coxiellaceae in Non-Hematophagous Bats and Associated Ectoparasites from Brazil
TLDR
The present work shows, for the first time, the occurrence of Anaplasmataceae in bats and associated ectoparasites (ticks, mites, and bat flies) from Brazil.
Analysis of complete genome sequence and major surface antigens of Neorickettsia helminthoeca, causative agent of salmon poisoning disease
TLDR
Using sera from dogs that were experimentally infected by feeding with parasitized fish or naturally infected in southern California, Western blot analysis revealed that among five predicted N. helminthoeca outer membrane proteins, P51 and strain‐variable surface antigen were uniformly recognized, which will help understanding pathogenesis, prevalence and diagnostic and preventive measures of N. HelminthOeca infection among trematodes, canids and potentially other animals in nature.
Isolation and Molecular Analysis of a Novel Neorickettsia Species That Causes Potomac Horse Fever
TLDR
The cell culture isolation of a new Neorickettsia species found in two locations in eastern Ontario, Canada, in 2016 and 2017 had the characteristic intramolecular repeats within strain-specific antigen 3 (Ssa3), which were found in all sequenced Ssa3s of N. risticii strains.
Assessing bat droppings and predatory bird pellets for vector-borne bacteria: molecular evidence of bat-associated Neorickettsia sp. in Europe
TLDR
Bats were shown to pass rickettsia and haemoplasma DNA in their faeces, and testing of bird pellets may provide an alternative approach to trapping for assessing the local occurrence of vector-borne bacteria in small mammals.
Transmission Biology, Host Associations, Distribution and Molecular Diagnostics of Neorickettsia
TLDR
This chapter briefly discusses the history of research on Neorickettsia, their phylogenetic interrelationships, transmission biology of different species and species-level genetic lineages within the genus, associations among NeorICKettsia and their digenean and vertebrate hosts, geographic distribution, and PCR-based molecular diagnostics and identification of Neorckettsia.
Molecular and morphological characterization of the cercariae of Lecithodendrium linstowi (Dollfus, 1931), a trematode of bats, and incrimination of the first intermediate snail host, Radix balthica
TLDR
The application of molecular data in this study has enabled linkage of life cycle stages and accurate incrimination of the first intermediate host, emphasizing the requirement for molecular identification of lymnaeids as important intermediate hosts of medical and veterinary impact.
Transcriptomic responses of Biomphalaria pfeifferi to Schistosoma mansoni: Investigation of a neglected African snail that supports more S. mansoni transmission than any other snail species
TLDR
This study provides for the first time a large sequence data set to help in interpreting the important vector role of the neglected snail B. pfeifferi in transmission of S. mansoni, including with an emphasis on more natural, field-derived specimens.
Schistosomiasis in the Wild: A Transcriptomics Perspective on Field-Derived Biomphalaria pfeifferi and Schistosoma mansoni, and their Interactions
TLDR
The response of B. pfeifferi to both niclosamide and patent S. mansoni infection was greater than to either stressor alone with evidence of apoptosis, reduced protein synthesis, reduced production of detoxification enzymes, and diminished innate immune function.

Large Scale Screening of Digeneans for Neorickettsia Endosymbionts Using Real-Time PCR Reveals New Neorickettsia Genotypes, Host Associations and Geographic Records
TLDR
The results of screening 771 digenean samples for Neorickettsia collected from various vertebrates in terrestrial, freshwater, brackish, and marine habitats in the United States, China and Australia suggest that further surveys from broader geographic regions and wider selection ofDigenean taxa are likely to reveal new Neoricksettsia lineages as well as new digenesan host associations.
New genetic lineages, host associations and circulation pathways of Neorickettsia endosymbionts of digeneans
TLDR
Results of screening for Neorickettsia of an extensive collection of DNA extracts from adult and larval digeneans obtained from various vertebrates and mollusks in the United States suggest that current knowledge of the diversity, host associations and circulation of neorICKettsiae is far from satisfactory.
Transmission rates of the bacterial endosymbiont, Neorickettsia risticii, during the asexual reproduction phase of its digenean host, Plagiorchis elegans, within naturally infected lymnaeid snails
TLDR
This study quantified the transmission of Neorickettsia during the asexual reproductive phase of a digenean parasite, Plagiorchis elegans, developing within naturally parasitized lymnaeid pond snails, and indicates that, unlike the Wolbachia-filaria relationship, the NeorICKettsia-digenean relationship is not obligatory mutualism.
Reorganization of genera in the families Rickettsiaceae and Anaplasmataceae in the order Rickettsiales: unification of some species of Ehrlichia with Anaplasma, Cowdria with Ehrlichia and Ehrlichia with Neorickettsia, descriptions of six new species combinations and designation of Ehrlichia equi and
TLDR
It is proposed that all members of the tribes Ehrlichieae and Wolbachieae be transferred to the family Anaplasmataceae and that the tribe structure of the family Rickettsiaceae be eliminated.
Neorickettsial endosymbionts of the digenea: diversity, transmission and distribution.
An additional genus and two additional species of Forticulcitinae (Digenea: Haploporidae).
TLDR
A Bayesian inference analysis of partial 28S rDNA sequences of the two New World species of Forticulcita, XihaFastigata and previously published haploporids places Xiha fastigata within theForticulcitinae and sister to ForticULcita.
One new species of Saccocoelioides (Digenea: Haploporidae) from Liza carinatus in Taiwan Strait
TLDR
The paper deals with a new species of Saccocoelioides Szidat, 1954 obtained from the intestine of Liza carinatus, which is based on 18 specimens deposited in Parasitology Research Laboratory, School of Life Sciences, Xiamen University.
Characterization of the intestinal microbiota of two Antarctic notothenioid fish species
TLDR
The findings suggest that Antarctic notothenioids carry a gut microbiota similar in composition to that of temperate fish, but exhibiting lower species-level diversity, which may indicate that increasing herbivory in fish leads to gut microbe diversification, as found in mammals.
A new method of DNA extraction from the ethanol-fixed parasitic worms
TLDR
The method is based on the use of the guanidine thiocyanate extraction buffer after evaporation of the ethanol from the tissues of drying and provided higher DNA yield than a conventional phenol-chloroform extraction.
