Salivary fluid secretion in the ixodid tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus is inhibited by Thogoto virus infection.

Abstract:

Adult Rhipicephatus appendiculatus ticks, infected with Thogoto (THO) virus or control, were fed on guinea pigs and removed at intervals throughout the feeding cycle. Salivary fluid secretion was measured by an in vitro technique. The salivary glands of infected, partially-fed ticks secreted fluid in vitro at about 75% the rate of controls, but the difference between infected and controls among engorged ticks was not statistically significant. Basal and DA-stimulated levels of cyclic AMP (cAM...
