Event Description

Full Description:
Scorpions, spiders, and snakes are the most common metazoan species recognized as venomous animals. Ticks are of major importance since they are vectors for diverse diseases affecting humans and livestock. These haematophagous arthropods are considered principally as ectoparasites, and are rarely considered as venomous animals despite that tick saliva contains several protein families present in tick taxa with many venomous species inducing paralysis and other types of toxicoses. This talk will focus on recent advances in the genomic study conducted on Ixodes holocyclus (Australian Paralysis tick) for the identification of proteins with toxicological importance and related to vector disease transmission.
