Ticks, rickettsial and erlichial infection in small mammals from Atlantic forest remnants in northeastern Brazil

Abstract: We evaluated infection by Rickettsia spp. and Ehrlichia spp in small mammals and their ticks from two Atlantic forest conservation areas in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, northeastern Brazil. A total of 39 small mammals were captured during 2012–2013, encompassing 33 marsupials (29 Didelphis albiventris, four Monodelphis domestica), three Cricetidae rodents (two Necromys lasiurus, one Rattus rattus), one Caviomorpha rodent (Thrichomys apereoides) and two armadillos (Euphractus sexcinctus). The ticks Amblyom… Show more

“…Our study found I. loricatus on D. aurita and D. albiventris as previously described in diverse Brazilian states such as Paraná, Rio Grande do Norte, São Paulo, and Pernambuco (21,(49)(50)(51). In the state of Pernambuco, I. loricatus was found infesting five marsupial species, including D. aurita and D. albiventris, with high infestation frequencies in these two marsupial species (50), similar to that observed in our study.…”

“…Several studies have described ticks from the Amblyomma genus parasitizing reptiles, amphibians, avians, and mammalians (7,20,21). To date, 23 tick species have been identified in the Amazon region, with Amblyomma being the most prevalent genus (22).…”

“…In Brazil, several genotypes of A. phagocytophilum , A. marginale , A. bovis , A. platys , E. canis , E. chafeensis , and potential new species, that are not yet named, have been detected in different species of wild animals, including deer 5 11 , wild canids 12 14 , wild felids 12 , 15 , 16 , coatis 14 , rodents 14 , 17 19 , caititus and peccaries 20 , opossums 21 , 22 , and birds 23 , 24 .…”

“…The genus Ehrlichia (Rickettsiales: Anaplasmataceae) comprises 6 formally recognized tick-transmitted species: E. canis, E. muris, E. chaffeensis, E. ewingii, E. minasensis, and E. ruminantium (2,3). Recently, other Ehrlichia species have been reported and different strains of putative novel Ehrlichia species have been molecularly detected, but their taxonomic positions are still not clearly defined (4)(5)(6). Current knowledge about this group of pathogens suggests that a large number of Ehrlichia species might be not yet described.…”

“…Several recent studies conducted in South America reported finding novel ehrlichial agents infecting jaguars, horses, crab-eating foxes, opossums, sloths, and peccaries (6). Unfortunately, only short dsb sequences are available for those ehrlichiae from South America.…”
