Abstract The rickettsial infections in 174 Amblyomma nodosum found on passeriform birds in the Atlantic forest, eastern Brazil, have recently been evaluated. Rickettsiae were successfully isolated from two ticks, using cultures of Vero cells. Both isolates were molecularly characterised, using the rickettsial genes gltA and htrA and, when possible, also ompA and ompB. Portions of the gltA and htrA genes from one of the rickettsial isolates were found be closely match the corresponding GenBank… Expand

Phylogenetic Evidence for the Existence of Multiple Strains of Rickettsia parkeri in the New World
TLDR
Genetic evidence is provided that novel isolates, namely, strains Atlantic rainforest, NOD, and Parvitarsum, are South American strains of R. parkeri. Expand
In vitro isolation and infection intensity of Rickettsia parkeri in Amblyomma triste ticks from the Paraná River Delta region, Argentina.
TLDR
In the present study, the first in vitro isolation and infection intensity of Rickettsia parkeri is reported in Amblyomma triste ticks from Argentina, finding that the prevalence of infection by R. parkeri in ticks collected from the vegetation in the Paraná Delta was high and bimodal. Expand
Rickettsia (Rickettsiales: Rickettsiaceae) Vector Biodiversity in High Altitude Atlantic Forest Fragments Within a Semiarid Climate: A New Endemic Area of Spotted-Fever in Brazil
Abstract Rickettsioses are re-emerging vector-borne zoonoses with a global distribution. Recently, Rickettsia sp. strain Atlantic rainforest has been associated with new human spotted-fever (SF)Expand

TLDR
The first molecular evidence of a novel Rickettsia (Rickettsia sp. strain Colombianensi) infecting A. dissimile ticks collected from iguanas, and also Rh. Expand
Spotted fever group Rickettsia infecting ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil.
TLDR
The role of this rickettsial agent as a possible etiological agent of spotted fever in SC is discussed. Expand
Detection of Rickettsia parkeri and Candidatus Rickettsia andeanae in Amblyomma maculatum Gulf Coast ticks collected from humans in the United States.
TLDR
Rickettsia parkeri, a spotted fever group (SFG) rickettsia recently found to be pathogenic to humans, causes an eschar-associated febrile illness and Candidatus Rickettsia andeanae, a recently described agent of unknown pathogenicity originally identified in ticks collected from domestic animals during a fever outbreak investigation in northern Peru, is found. Expand
Rickettsial infection in ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) of wild animals in midwestern Brazil.
TLDR
The results represent an impressive expansion of knowledge on tick fauna and rickettsiae and are essential for understanding the ecology of ticks and tick-borne diseases in the Neotropical region, particularly in midwestern Brazil. Expand

Isolation of Rickettsia rhipicephali and Rickettsia bellii from Haemaphysalis juxtakochi Ticks in the State of São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
Rickettsia bellii is indeed the most frequent Rickettsia species infecting ticks in Brazil, and both isolate HJ#5 and strain R300 were identified as South American strains of R. rhipicephali, which was confirmed in this continent for the first time. Expand

Rickettsia Species Infecting Amblyomma cooperi Ticks from an Area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, Where Brazilian Spotted Fever Is Endemic
TLDR
Results do not support the role of A. cooperi in the ecology of R. rickettsii in the area studied, but they add two more species of ricksettsiae to the poorly developed list of species occurring in ticks in South America. Expand
Infection by Rickettsia bellii and Candidatus “Rickettsia amblyommii” in Amblyomma neumanni Ticks from Argentina
TLDR
The results reinforce previous findings that R. bellii (and probably CandidatusR. amblyommii) are widespread among some Neotropical Amblyomma species, suggesting that these ticks gained these bacterial agents from a common ancestor and/or by recent horizontal transmission of rickettsiae between ticks. Expand
Natural Infection, Transovarial Transmission, and Transstadial Survival of Rickettsia bellii in the Tick Ixodes loricatus (Acari: Ixodidae) from Brazil
TLDR
It is suggested that R. bellii might be maintained in nature solely by transovarial transmission and transstadial survival in ticks (no amplifier vertebrate host is needed), since there has been no direct or indirect evidence of infection of vertebrate hosts by R. Bellii. Expand
