Epidemiological survey in a natural focus of Rickettsia transmitted by Ixodes ricinus in Switzerland

, : Epidemiological survey in a natural focus of Rickettsia transmitted by Ixodes ricinus in Switzerland. Annales de Parasitologie Humaine et Comparee 56(1): 1-8

A spotted fever group Rickettsia referred to as "Swiss agent" was detected in 8.5% of Ixodes ricinus collected in a marshy forest of the Swiss plateau. This organism, in its tick vector, was found to be transmitted stadially as well as ovarially; of 433 larval, nymphal or adult ticks from 17 parental tick females, all were infected. A total of 3,612 larval I. ricinus were collected from 168 small mammals including 127 Clethrionomys glareolus, 29 Apodemus sylvaticus and flavicolis, 7 Microtus agrestis, and 5 Sorex araneus from the same forest. 143 sera were obtained from these rodents: 114 (82%) had microagglutinating antibodies to the "Swiss agent".

The c-Abl protein tyrosine kinase is activated by ionizing radiation (IR) and certain other DNA-damaging agents. The present studies demonstrate that c-Abl associates constitutively with protein kinase C delta (PKCdelta). The results show that the...

The functional roles of these trunk muscles in axial rotation are multiple and have not been well investigated. In addition, there...
