In this study, we analyzed Rickettsia species in Haemaphysalis
longicornis ticks collected from Shandong Province, China, and found R.
sanguineus (n=13, 1.46%), Haemaphysalis
parva (n=9, 1.00%), H.
longicornis is a tick indigenous to eastern Asia and an important vector of human and animal disease agents, resulting in such outcomes as human hemorrhagic fever and reduction of production in dairy cattle by 25%.
Invasive-species tick: A National Veterinary Services Laboratory test confirmed the Haemaphysalis
longicornis tick, native to East Asia, is in Maryland.
Tunicamycin, an inhibitor of N-linked glycosylation has been used to study the functional significance of glycosylation in Sf9 (Spodographa frugiperda) cells expressing a chitinase from a tick Haemaphysalis
Ixodes spp, Hyalomma spp., Haemaphysalis
spp., Dermacentor spp.
In its home range, the Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis

canis infection is the brown dog tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, although the infection may also be transmitted by other dog tick species such as Haemaphysalis
longicornus and Haemaphysalis
flavas (Dwyer et al., 2001).
The tick Haemaphysalis
longicornis is of great medical and veterinary importance, and can transmit a great diversity of pathogens.
