Gene context of Tick Infestations

  • Significant differences in cytokine production were observed between infested and noninfested mice, as well as between the two mouse strains, following tick infestation [12].
  • Impact of a severe tick infestation at Little Rock AFB, Arkansas on volant scorpion military training [13].
  • Serum insulin, prolactin, growth hormone, and cortisol concentrations were unaffected by tick infestations [14].
  • RESULTS: Bm86 on the membrane of P. pastoris plus saponin produced high antibody titers in cattle, though the protection level against tick infestations was lower when compared to Gavac, probably due to a decrease in the IgG1/IgG2 ratio [15].
  • Individual tick resistance indices, determined after artificial tick infestation in the field, could not be correlated with hair length, skin thickness or conglutinin titres [16].
