Table 4 Transstadial transmission experiment 2, A. cajennense nymphs fed to repletion on T. equi infected horse Ho-266

From: Amblyomma cajennense is an intrastadial biological vector of Theileria equi

Sex Fresh adult gut 35 day adults Transmission fed (# recovered/# applied) Tested after transmission

  1. Parasitemia (as estimated by qPCR) during time of nymphal feeding 1.16 × 105 genome copies per ml. Ticks were sampled at various intervals before and after transmission feeding (freshly molted adults, adults after 35 days, and adults after transmission feeding). 50 days after molting ticks were applied to Ho-212 for transmission feeding.
