Abstract

The ultrastructural aspects of the interaction of R. sibirica and R. slovaca with cells of mites of the species Dermacentor reticulatus, D. marginatus and Ixodes ricinus after their parenteral infection, as well as in the organs of D. marginatus infected naturally in the environment, have been studied. Both rickettsial species have similar morphology in different organs of the vector. These rickettsiae not only multiply, their populations are also partly destroyed in phagolysosomes. The natural mixed infection of R. sibirica and orbivirus in cells of D. reticulatus is described. As shown in this study, both associates pass through the complete ontogenetic cycle of development on the level of the host body and also on the level of an individual cell.
