Identification of microbial taxa present in Ctenocephalides felis (cat flea) reveals widespread co-infection and associations with vector phylogeny


By: C. Manvell n, H. Berman n, B. Callahan n, E. Breitschwerdt n, W. Swain n, K. Ferris n, R. Maggi n, E. Lashnits*

author keywords: Flea microbiome; Bartonella; Wolbachia; Rickettsia; Flea phylogenetics; Flea diversity; DNA barcoding; 16S NGS
MeSH headings : Animals; Cats; Bartonella / genetics; Cat Diseases / parasitology; Coinfection; Ctenocephalides / microbiology; Flea Infestations / epidemiology; Flea Infestations / veterinary; Phylogeny; Rickettsia / genetics
TL;DR: The findings confirm the widespread coinfection of fleas with multiple bacterial genera and strains, proposing three additional microbiome members and have important implications for flea-borne pathogen transmission and control. (via Semantic Scholar)

Prevalence of Vector-Borne Pathogens in Reproductive and Non-Reproductive Tissue Samples from Free-Roaming Domestic Cats in the South Atlantic USA


By: C. Manvell n, K. Ferris n, R. Maggi n, E. Breitschwerdt n & E. Lashnits n

author keywords: Bartonella spp; hemotropic Mycoplasma spp; reproduction; cats; prevalence
TL;DR: Ear tip and reproductive tissues of FRCs from two locations in the South Atlantic United States for Anaplasma, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, hemotropic Mycoplasma, and Rickettsia species suggest that B. henselae preferentially infected cats’ reproductive tissue and reinforces the importance of investigating the potential for vertical transmission or induction of reproductive failure.
