tick Haemaphysalis longicornis vitellogenin midgut Babesia transovarial transmission

Abstract

Ticks are hematophagous arthropods and have a remarkable ability to transmit various parasites. Babesia ovata, a protozoan parasite that causes babesiosis in cattle, is transmitted from parent to offspring in Haemaphysalis longicornis. Although transovarial transmission is demonstrated experimentally, little is known about the molecular mechanisms of tick-Babesia in that phenomenon.
