actually Lyme borreliosis:
The Borrelia turicatae murine
model of Lyme disease
Alan G. Barbour, MD. JSTD 1996;
Borrelia turicatae is
an agent of relapsing fever. During
relapsing fever spirochetes avoid the
immune response of the host by a
multiphasic antigenic variation. In Borrelia hermsii, another agent of
relapsing fever, the mechanism for the
switch in antigens is a gene
rearrangement, namely an interplasmidic
gene conversion or an intraplasmidic
deletion between direct repeats. In
severe combined immunodeficiency (scid)
mice, B. turicatae causes the
constellation of arthritis, myocarditis,
uveitis, and a cranial nerve disorder.
In this way, the infection in these mice
is similar to Lyme disease. Moreover, B. turicatae invades and persists in
the central nervous system of laboratory
mice. The severity of illness,
particularly the arthritis, and the
entry into the brain appear to be
determined by the small Vmp proteins of
this species. These proteins are
homologous to the polymorphic OspC
proteins of B. burgdorferi, the
agent of Lyme disease.

Experimental infection of the mouse

Cadavid D, Bundoc V, Barbour AG.

The spirochetal disease relapsing fever
is notable not only for multiphasic
antigenic variation but also for central
neurologic manifestations. To further
characterize involvement of the brain in
this disorder, immunocompetent and
-deficient mice were infected with
Borrelia hermsii. Immunodeficient mice
were treated while spirochetemic with
neutralizing IgM monoclonal antibodies
to the infecting serotype. Blood,
cerebrospinal fluid, and brain tissue
were examined by culture and polymerase
chain reaction. In immunocompetent mice,
antigenic variation occurred in the
brain as well as in the blood. In
immunodeficient mice, the infecting
serotype was still present in the brain
after it had been eliminated from the
blood by the administered antibodies. These latter results cannot be accounted
for by contamination of brain tissue and
cerebrospinal fluid by blood and, hence,
establish the direct involvement of the
central nervous system in this
experimental infection. PMID:

activities of ceftriaxone and vancomycin

Diseases), University of Texas Health
Science Center at San Antonio 78284,
Borrelia burgdorferi, the agent of Lyme
disease, and B. turicatae, a neurotropic
agent of relapsing fever, are
susceptible to vancomycin in vitro, with
an MIC of 0.5 microgram/ml. To determine
the activity of vancomycin in vivo,
particularly in the brain, we infected
adult immunocompetent BALB/c and
immunodeficient CB-17 scid mice with B.
burgdorferi or B. turicatae. The mice
were then treated with vancomycin,
ceftriaxone as a positive control, or
normal saline as a negative control. The
effectiveness of treatment was assessed
by cultures of blood and brain and other
tissues. Ceftriaxone at a dose of 25
mg/kg of body weight administered every
12 h for 7 to 10 days eliminated
cultivable B. burgdorferi or B.
turicatae from all BALB/c or scid mice
in the study. Vancomycin at 30 mg/kg
administered every 12 h was effective in
eliminating infection from
immunodeficient mice if treatment was
started within 3 days of the onset of
infection. If treatment with vancomycin
was delayed for 7 days or more,
vancomycin failed to eradicate infection
with B. burgdorferi or B. turicatae from
immunodeficient mice. The failure of
vancomycin in eradicating established
infections in immunodeficient mice was
associated with the persistence of
viable spirochetes in the brain during

Antigenic variation in Borrelia.
Saint Girons I, Barbour AG.
Unite des Leptospires, Institut Pasteur,
Antigenic variation was demonstrated for
the agent of relapsing fever, Borrelia
hermsii. The phenomenon is correlated
with changes in major surface proteins
called Vmp. The genes encoding these
antigens are located on linear plasmids.
Expression occurs by transposition of
genes encoding Vmp to a telomeric
expression site located on another
linear plasmid. Activation of a vmp gene
occurs by placing it downstream from a
promoter. Resemblance to the
antigenic variation of trypanosomes is

Several pathogens of humans and domestic
animals depend on hematophagous
arthropods to transmit them from one
vertebrate reservoir host to another and
maintain them in an environment. These
pathogens use antigenic variation to
prolong their circulation in the blood
and thus increase the likelihood of
transmission. By convergent evolution,
bacterial and protozoal vector-borne
pathogens have acquired similar genetic
mechanisms for successful antigenic
variation. Borrelia spp. and Anaplasma
marginale (among bacteria) and African
trypanosomes, Plasmodium falciparum, and
Babesia bovis (among parasites) are
examples of pathogens using these
mechanisms. Antigenic variation poses
a challenge in the development of
vaccines against vector-borne pathogens.
