A comparison of the reproductive parameters of females of two reptile tick species

, : A comparison of the reproductive parameters of females of two reptile tick species. International Journal For Parasitology. 21(8): 907-912

In comparisons of females of two reptile tick species Aponomma hydrosauri and Amblyomma limbatum, Ap. hydrosauri was initially larger, and after mating on the host engorged faster and remained attached for a shorter time before completing engorgement and detaching. Amb. limbatum had a longer period of engorgement, and achieved a greater engorged weight. Engorged Amb. limbatum females laid significantly more eggs than equivalent sized Ap. hydrosauri. Although the two species are ecologically similar and were collected from the same site for this study, their reproductive differences probably reflect adaptations to different conditions in their largely allopatric ranges.

The chemokine receptor CXCR3 has been shown to play a key role in the recruitment of T cells to sites of inflammation such as allografts. Here, we investigated which signals and conditions are responsible for CXCR3 induction. CXCR3 was induced on...
