Abstract

Ticks of the genus Dermacentor are important vectors of human and animal pathogens in North America. They also carry a variety of endosymbiotic (i.e. non-pathogenic) bacteria. The American dog tick, D. variabilis, is known to be infected with gammaproteobacteria of the genus Arsenophonus. However,...

Abstract

A Dermacentor variabilis cDNA encoding a clip-domain serine proteinase homologue with glycine replacing the catalytic serine was identified from tick haemocytes. The D. variabilis product was most similar to Tachypleus tridentatus haemocyte antimicrobial factor D and shared significant homologies...
