[Genetic features of Borrelia miyamotoi transmitted by Ixodes persulcatus].

[Article in Russian]


The definition and molecular typing of Borrelia miyamotoi transmitted by the Ixodes persuccatus ticks was based on the partial sequencing of the 16S rRNA, p66, and glpQ genes. All the B. miyamotoi analyzed sequences of the 16S rRNA, glpQ, and p66 gene fragments from I. persulcatus were identical and had 99.9-100% similarity to corresponding genes of the B. miyamotoi strain FR64b isolated in Japan. The analyzed amino acid sequences revealed that the 66 protein B. miyamotoi in the site corresponding to the surface-exposed domain contained considerable difference from the Borrelia hermsii, the typical member tick-born relapsing fever, as from Borrelia lonestari transmitted by the Ixodes ticks.
