Versatile roles of CspA orthologs in complement inactivation of serum-resistant Lyme disease spirochetes.
 

Author(s): Claudia Hammerschmidt, Arno Koenigs, Corinna Siegel, Teresia Hallström, Christine Skerka, Reinhard Wallich, Peter F Zipfel, Peter Kraiczy

Journal: Infect. Immun.. 2014 Jan;82(1):380-92.

 

CspA of the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi represents a key molecule in immune evasion, protecting borrelial cells from complement-mediated killing. As previous studies focused almost exclusively on CspA of B. burgdorferi, here we investigate the different binding capacities ...

DipA, a pore-forming protein in the outer membrane of Lyme disease spirochetes exhibits specificity for the permeation of dicarboxylates.
 

Author(s): Marcus Thein, Mari Bonde, Ignas Bunikis, Katrin Denker, Albert Sickmann, Sven Bergström, Roland Benz

Journal: PLoS ONE. 2012 ;7(5):e36523.

 

Lyme disease Borreliae are highly dependent on the uptake of nutrients provided by their hosts. Our study describes the identification of a 36 kDa protein that functions as putative dicarboxylate-specific porin in the outer membrane of Lyme disease Borrelia. The protein was purified ...

Biological aspects of Lyme disease spirochetes: unique bacteria of the Borrelia burgdorferi species group.
 

Author(s): Michal Krupka, Milan Raska, Jana Belakova, Milada Horynova, Radko Novotny, Evzen Weigl

Journal: Biomed Pap Med Fac Univ Palacky Olomouc Czech Repub. 2007 Dec;151(2):175-86.

 

Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato is a group of at least twelve closely related species some of which are responsible for Lyme disease, the most frequent zoonosis in Europe and the USA. Many of the biological features of Borrelia are unique in prokaryotes and very interesting not only ...

Vector interactions and molecular adaptations of lyme disease and relapsing fever spirochetes associated with transmission by ticks.
 

Author(s): Tom G Schwan, Joseph Piesman

Journal: Emerging Infect. Dis.. 2002 Feb;8(2):115-21.

 

Pathogenic spirochetes in the genus Borrelia are transmitted primarily by two families of ticks. The Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, is transmitted by the slow-feeding ixodid tick Ixodes scapularis, whereas the relapsing fever spirochete, B. hermsii, is transmitted ...

Author(s): D M Roberts, J A Carlyon, M Theisen, R T Marconi

Journal: Emerging Infect. Dis.. ;6(2):110-22.

 

Species of the genus Borrelia cause human and animal infections, including Lyme disease, relapsing fever, and epizootic bovine abortion. The borrelial genome is unique among bacterial genomes in that it is composed of a linear chromosome and a series of linear and circular plasmids. ...
