Rhipicephalus microplus: Transcriptomes of Fed and Unfed Adult Females

posted on 2024-02-06, 23:55 authored by USDA-Agricultural Research Service, USA
The goal was to develop a comprehensive transcriptome of adult female Rhipicephalus microplus ticks and discover transcriptome changes that are related to feeding and host-perception prior to feeding. We have sequenced the transcriptomes of unfed newly molted adult female ticks, newly molted adult females that were feeding upon a bovine host for 3 hours following attachment to the host, and newly molted adult females that were placed in a gas-permeable bag attached to a bovine host for 3 hours (attachment to host prevented but host odors available to the ticks). There were 2 biological replicates and transcriptomes assembled from each individual experimental condition. A collective adult female transcriptome was assembled from sequence data pooled from all 3 conditions (using data from all replicates). Differential gene expression was examined using all possible comparisons to detect putative feeding-associated and host perception-associated transcripts.
