Vaccination againstBoophilus microplus: Localization of antigens on tick gut cells and their interaction with the host immune system

Abstract

Cattle have been vaccinated againstBoophilus microplus with antigens derived from partially fed female ticks. The immune response of the host lyses the gut cells of adult ticks, causing a reduction in the number, weight and reproductive capacity of engorging ticks. This response is different from the immunity that cattle acquire after repeated tick… (More)
