Sample text

The salivary chemokine-binding proteins produced by ticks have been termed ‘evasins’ and their function has been characterized. Evasin-1 binds to CCL3, CCL4 and CCL18, evasin-3 binds to CXCL8 and CXCL1, and evasin-4 binds to CCL5 and CCL11. Tick saliva also modulates the acute neutrophilic inflammatory response following tick attachment and transmission of microparasites. Neutrophilic infiltration does not affect the survival of B. burgdorferi sensu stricto after transmission via I. ricinus, and this modulatory mechanism involves inhibition of neutrophil reactive oxygen species rather than impairing the ability of neutrophils to form extracellular ‘NETs’ (neutrophil extracellular traps of extruded DNA).

Treg cells suppress immune responses by virtue of the production of cytokines such as IL-10 or transforming growth factor (TGF)-β. Treg cells may be induced during the course of an active immune response to foreign antigen (an induced Treg) or may be present continually within the body in order to control effector T cells that might promote a deleterious autoimmune response (natural Tregs). However, not all regulation is mediated via IL-10 production from classical Treg cells. It appears that there is ‘plasticity’ in the function of Th1 and Th2 cells, which means that these too can become a source of IL-10 and have some immunoregulatory function.

At 1 and 3 hours there was no tissue cellular infiltration, but upregulation of genes related to post-translational modification. At 6 and 12 hours there was a neutrophilic inflammatory response, accompanied by upregulation of genes related to cytoskeletal rearrangements, cell division, inflammation and chemotaxis, with downregulation of genes associated with formation of extracellular matrix and cellular signalling. 3. Salivary immunomodulatory factors The host immune response engendered by tick attachment fits readily within the concept of functionally diverse CD4+ T lymphocyte populations that mediate different aspects of immunity.
