Salivary glands and saliva of Amblyomma variegatum ticks: comparison of immatures and adults in relation to the pathogenesis of dermatophilosis

Abstract

Salivary glands from immature and adult Amblyomma variegatum were compared for differences in potential components responsible for the systemic aggravation by adult ticks of the skin disease dermatophilosis. Whole salivary glands from adult, nymphal and larval A. variegatum ticks were compared for structural differences by light microscopy and for protein content by gel electrophoresis. Type-2 salivary gland acini from adult ticks at the second stage of feeding contained significantly greater (P
