Abstract

The optimum gel filtration fraction from lysate of B. bovis infected erythrocytes was determined for use as an antigen in an ELISA to diagnose B. bovis infection in cattle. Of 4 enzyme labels tested, horseradish peroxidase was the most suitable. The assay is both sensitive and specific in detecting ...

Abstract

Plasma samples from cattle recovering from acute B. bovis infection contain cryoprecipitable immune complexes (IC). Production of bovine and rabbit antisera to IC and subsequent serological assays indicated IC contained antigens of both babesial and erythrocytic origin. Vaccination of naive cattle...

Abstract

In studies in Australia, Babesia bovis that had recently been exposed to gamma -radiation or had been re-isolated from cattle infected 12 months previously with irradiated parasites were not transmitted transovarially by Boophilus microplus (Can.), though the parent strain of the pathogen that had...

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

Further pathophysiological studies of the hypotensive shock syndrome associated with acute B. bovis infection in cattle demonstrated changes in the plasma concentrations of conglutinin, complement C3, fibronectin and immunoconglutinin. Decreases in the first three components are presumably due to...

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

An esterase was isolated from a crude extract of B. bovis by affinity chromatography, using soyabean trypsin inhibitor as a ligand. In native form this enzyme had a molecular weight greater than 200 000, but on denaturing gels major bands were observed with molecular weights of 20 000, 10 000 and...

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 ...
