Abstract

Two groups (groups 2 and 3) of susceptible two-year-old non-splenectomized Hereford cattle and a group (group 1) of splenectomized three-month-old calves of mixed breeds were infected with a virulent Babesia bovis strain. All non-splenectomized cattle were severely affected, and one of six animals...

Abstract

The haemolytic activity of serum complement was measured in cattle during B. bovis infection. It fell significantly on the 5th day after infection and was not detectable by the 10th day. After clinical recovery between 15 and 20 days after infection it was again detected in serum and gradually...

Abstract

Serum carboxypeptidase B (SCPB) levels were measured in splenectomized calves and in non-splenectomized cattle infected with three virulent and one avirulent strains of B. bovis, and in splenectomized calves infected with virulent B. bigemina. SCPB levels began falling three days after infection in ...

Abstract

A cryofibrinogen complex, found in the plasma of cattle acutely infected with Babesia bovis (argentina), was characterized. The fibrinogen-like proteins of the complex were isolated and the structure of their polypeptide chains analysed. The chain structure was similar to that of soluble...

Abstract

Specific antisera against Babesia bovis (= argentina) antigens were prepared in rabbits by inoculation of precipitates from an extract of infected erythrocytes and absorption of the antisera with normal bovine components. Of 3 babesial antigens detected, one appeared to contain a modified stromal...

Abstract

Preliminary studies have demonstrated changes to the lipid metabolism of cattle acutely infected with Babesia bovis. Total lipid, total cholesterol, and phospholipids decreased significantly during infection. Associated with this was a decrease in concentration of serum lipoproteins and a loss of...

Abstract

A virulent strain of B. bovis ("L" strain) was rendered avirulent by gamma-irradiation with 35 krads. Another virulent strain of B. bovis ("C" strain) was made avirulent by rapid blood passage through 12 splenectomized calves. Both the parent virulent and the respective avirulent strains were...
