Data from: Horizontal transmission of Rickettsia felis between cat fleas, Ctenocephalides felis

Supanee Hirunkanokpun, Chutima Thepparit, Lane D. Foil & Kevin R. Macaluso
Rickettsia felis is a rickettsial pathogen primarily associated with the cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis. Although laboratory studies have confirmed that R. felis is maintained by transstadial and transovarial transmission in C. felis, distinct mechanisms of horizontal transmission of R. felis among cat fleas is undefined. Based on the inefficient vertical transmission of R. felis by cat fleas and the detection of R. felis in a variety of hematophagous arthropods, we hypothesize that R. felis is...
