    Numerous parameters affect the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay activity and the assay conditions must therefore be carefully controlled to obtain reproducible results. These parameters include temperature, pH, ionic ...
  • Heartwater : Past, Present and Future. Workshop (1986 : Kruger National Park, South Africa); Gothe, R.; Bigalke, R.D. (Pretoria : Government Printer, 1987)
    According to their activity profiles tick pheromones can be characterized as assembly pheromones, aggregation/attachment pheromones, pre-attachment or pre-feeding pheromones, attractant sex pheromones, contact sex pheromones, ...
  • Potgieter, F.T.; Van Rensburg, L.; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    Anaplasma centrale was isolated from a field collection of Rhipicephalus simus. Transstadial transmission of A. centrale with adult ticks was demonstrated, but the infection was not carried transovarially. Ticks from this ...

    Twelve species of Amblyomma are presently known to be capable of transmitting Cowdria ruminantium. Of these A. variegatum is the most important and widely distributed vector in Africa. It has also extended its range ...
  • De Waal, D.T.; Potgieter, F.T.; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi larvae were fed on the ears of rabbits. Seven days after larval infestation, unfed, newly moulted nymphae were manually removed to infest a splenectomized donkey showing a patent Babesia ...

    Two field strains of Haemonchus contortus, one from Pretoria on the Highveld and the other from White River in the Lowveld of the Transvaal, showed pronounced resistance to rafoxanide at a dosage rate of 7,5 mg/kg live ...
  • Kocan, Katherine M.; Bezuidenhout, J. Dürr; Hart, Alet; Bigalke, R.D. (Pretoria : Government Printer, 1987)
    Colonies of Cowdria ruminantium were studied in midgut epithelial cells and salivary gland acini of nymphal Amblyomma hebraeum that were infected experimentally as larvae. Colonies were found in both tissues and studied ...
  • Heartwater : Past, Present and Future. Workshop (1986 : Kruger National Park, South Africa); Van Amstel, S.R.; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    Both electro-encephalography and brain biopsy were examined as possible aids in the confirmation of a clinical diagnosis of heartwater in field cases. Results showed that electro-encephalographic changes associated with ...
