We describe a case of culture-confirmed TBRF caused by Borrelia turicatae acquired by an Army soldier during a military training exercise in Texas, USA.
Chromosome and linear plasmid sequences of a 2015 human isolate of the tick-borne relapsing fever spirochete, Borrelia turicatae.
Notably, cases in Texas occurred more frequently in winter months and were associated with time spent in caves, which likely represents infection with Borrelia turicatae
, another species of TBRF Borrelia transmitted by Ornithodoros turicata ticks (5).
Prevalencia de anticuerpos contra Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia parkeri y Borrelia turicatae
en poblados de la provincia cordillera, Bolivia.
Prevalence of antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia parkeri and Borrelia turicatae
in human settlements of the Cordillera Province, Bolivia.
For example, a novel spirochete that is closely related to the relapsing fever agent Borrelia turicatae
has recently been detected in Carios kelleyi, an argasid bat tick (2,3).
Phylogenetic analysis of the spirochetes Borrelia parkeri and Borrelia turicatae
and the potential for tick-borne relasping fever in Florida.
Isogenic serotypes of Borrelia turicatae
show different localization in the brain and skin of mice.
Extensive interplasmidic duplications change the virulence phenotype of the relapsing fever agent Borrelia turicatae.
Antigenic variation Of Borrelia turicatae Vsp surface lipoproteins occurs in vitro and generates novel serotypes.
