Babesia bovis: Effects of cysteine protease inhibitors on in vitro growth OAK
Okubo, Kazuhiro; Yokoyama, Naoaki; Govind, Yadav; Alhassan, Andy; Igarashi, Ikuo.
In the present study, we examined the effects of four kinds of cysteine protease inhibitors (E64, E64d, leupeptin, and ALLN) on the in vitro asexual growth of Babesia bovis. Of these, only the lipophilic inhibitors, E64d and ALLN, were found to effectively inhibit the growth of B. bovis. In further experiments, E64d, but not ALLN, significantly suppressed the parasite’s invasion of host erythrocytes, while both chemicals, especially ALLN, inhibited the parasite’s replication within the infected erythrocytes. These data suggested the presence of cysteine protease(s) derived from B. bovis, in which the protease(s) would play important roles in the erythrocyte invasion and/or replication processes of the parasite.

Babesia bovis: Subcellular localization of host erythrocyte membrane components during their asexual growth OAK
Okamura, Masashi; Yokoyama, Naoaki; Takabatake, Noriyuki; Okubo, Kazuhiro; Ikehara, Yuzuru; Igarashi, Ikuo; 横山, 直明; 五十嵐, 郁男.
In the present study, the subcellular localization of the host red blood cell (RBC) membrane components, the alpha 2-3-linked sialic acid (SA) residues and the lipid bilayer, was observed during the asexual growth of Babesia bovis using two erythrocyte probes, the SA-specific lectin (MALII) and the lipophilic fluorescent (PKH2) probes, respectively. In confocal laser scanning microscopy with MALII, the SA residues on the surface of parasitized RBCs appeared to accumulate into the intracellular parasites as the parasites matured as well as to remain on the surface of extracellular parasites. Furthermore, when PKH2-labeled RBCs were infected with B. bovis, PKH2 signals were also observed around both the intracellular and the extracellular parasites,...

Babesia microti is a tick-transmitted zoonotic hemoprotozoan parasite. In the present study, we investigated B. microti infection in questing ticks in Mongolia. A total of 219 questing ticks were collected from three different Mongolian provinces (Bayan-Olgii, Khovsgol, and Selenge). Of these, 63 from Selenge were identified as Ixodes persulcatus, while the remaining 156 (from all three provinces) were identified as Dermacentor nuttalli. When the tick DNA samples were screened using a B. microti-specific nested PCR, 19 (30.2%) of the 63 I. persulcatus ticks were found to be B. microti-positive. The parasite was not detected in D. nuttalli. Subsequently, the 18S rRNA, cox1, and tufA sequences of B. microti were amplified, sequenced, and subjected to...
