Effect of antibodies on tick oviposition. (A) Ticks capillary-fed on uninfected blood without (Blood) and with preimmune and anti-tick protein IgGs (TROSPA, SILK and Subolesin). (B) Ticks capillary-fed on B. bigemina-infected blood without (Blood) and with preimmune and anti-tick protein IgGs. (C) Ticks capillary-fed on A. marginale-infected blood without (Blood) and with preimmune and anti-tick protein IgGs. Ticks (N = 5) were incubated for oviposition after feeding, the egg mass weight was determined for each tick, expressed as Ave + S.D. (mg eggs/tick) and compared between the group with preimmune antibodies and the other groups by Student’s t-test (*P < 0.05).
