Inclusion of I. ricinus saliva into co-cultures of splenic dendritic cells from C3H/HeN mice and Borrelia afzelii led to reduction in phagocytosis of the bacteria by the dendritic cells, reduced cytokine production by the dendritic cells (including IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 and TNF-α) and reduced ability of the dendritic cells to activate CD4+ T cells. A recombinant salivary gland protein from R. 7 kDa N-glycoslyated lipocalin) has been shown to alter dendritic cell expression of membrane co-stimulatory molecules, to alter their secretion of pro-inflammatory, anti-inflammatory and T-cell polarizing cytokines and to inhibit their differentiation from monocytes.
Ricinus. Genetic analysis of the strains of A. phagocytophilum demonstrated that the strain present in small mammals and I. trainaguliceps did not appear in either deer or questing I. ricinus, and vice-versa. Similarly, no B. microti was detected in questing I. ricinus, and detailed genetic analyses of B. microti strains indicates that only a small cluster of strains are associated with human infections, while many others are restricted to their wildlife host. These results suggest that when identifying potential reservoir hosts for infectious diseases, it is important to ascertain the genotype of the agent as they may be of limited epidemiological significance.
However, testosterone can impair this acquired immunity in male bank voles. In addition, B. microti infections in bank voles given testosterone implants produce a more severe parasitaemia of longer duration than those in control animals. It is therefore apparent that certain groups within a host population, such as reproductively active males, may be of greater significance in the perpetuation of arthropod-borne infections than others. The importance to microparasite transmission of cohorts determined by age and gender within a population is demonstrated by the following example.
