They questioned the finding that "the Borrelia isolates were closely related to Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia garinii
, or Borrelia afzelii.
We amplified gene sequences from Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Borrelia garinii
At the start of the project, researchers injected a European Lyme strain called Borrelia garinii
into six birds under constant conditions and eight under changing day lengths.
Lyme disease is caused by three species of Borrelia bacteria: Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii
In addition to Lyme Disease in Sweden, Swedish researchers also discovered that sea birds in the Arctic region of Norway carry Ixodes uria ticks infected with Lyme Disease, specifically the Borrelia garinii
Comparative analysis of the Borrelia garinii
Rapid differentiation of Borrelia garinii
from Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto by LightCycler fluorescence melting curve analysis of a PCR product of the recA gene.
Conversion of Borrelia garinii
cystic forms to motile spirochetes in vivo.
Her case was confirmed by detection of Borrelia garinii
DNA present in her blood and synovial fluid.
Phylogenetie relationships of Ixodes uriae (Acari: Ixodidae) and their significance to transequatorial dispersal of Borrelia garinii
was the most common species in PCR-positive samples and included genotypes associated with human infections.
