Abstract:

Tick-borne pathogens, especially the ehrlichias, anaplasmas, and spirochetes, are recognized as causing a growing spectrum of diseases in domestic and feral animals and humans. One of the underlying principles governing the life cycle of tick-borne pathogens is their ability to survive and thrive in two extremely different environments—one presented by the homeostatic environment of the mammal, and the other presented by the vector tick, under conditions that change dramatically with activity and feeding status. The microbes must be able to sense pathophysiological changes in their hosts, distinguish the multitude of signals received, and react appropriately. Differential expression of specific antigens (DESA) mediates transition to the new host. This chapter highlights what is known about the response of these microbes to host cues and how they manage existence in and passage between the divergent environments of mammalian host and vector tick. It focuses on the human pathogenic rickettsiae and spirochetes as they prepare to leave the ticks and invade the mammalian host. The chapter also covers the basic features of the tick as a microbial environment and how the tick environment differs from that of the vertebrate host and how ticks recognize and respond to microbial invaders.

Phylogenetic relationship of bacteria associated with ticks. Endosymbionts and pathogens transmitted by ticks are shown in boldface type. The relationships between major bacterial groups are somewhat uncertain, and those shown in this unrooted tree are inferred from 16S rDNA sequences available in GenBank with the neighbor-joining method with PAUP*. The number of nucleotides being compared is 791. A list of the sequences used to construct this tree is available on request.
