Biochemical characteristics of human and animal disease carriers acari parasitiformes
During the study of the supernatants homogenates among Ixode, relapsing-fever blood-sucking ticks belonging to five different genera and ten species in polyacrylamide gel by electrophoresis the species differences were revealed in electrophoretic mobility of the tick protein fractions. Relapsing-fever ticks demonstrate as generic so as specific differences during the nymphal stage of development. The nymphs 3 Ornithodoros papillipes contain two protein fractions, O. moubata contain 3 fractions and Alveonasus lahorensis contain 5 fractions. The same kind of ticks had the same amount of protein fractions at the electrophoretic separation of proteins. During the larval stage the homogenates of ticks always show one protein fraction. The hemolymph of A.lahorensis tick showed the differences between imago and nymph 3. The antibacterial activity of the supernatant homogenate mite is revealed. The correlation between the value of antibacterial activity of the supernatant homogenate of ticks and the amount of protein fraction is showed at the electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel. A new biochemical marker is proposed to state the species of ticks.
