The virome of Rhipicephalus, Dermacentor and Haemaphysalis ticks from Eastern Romania includes novel viruses with potential relevance for public health

Abstract : Ticks are the second arthropod vectors, after mosquitoes, responsible for the spread of viruses and bacteria from wildlife to domestic animals and humans (Labuda & Nuttall, 2004). The ability of ticks to transmit a wide range of microbial pathogens, combined with their promiscuous feeding and geographical range expansion, makes them a substantial threat to animal and human health (Jongejan & Uilenberg, 2004). Viral disease-causing vectors are found mostly in the following tick families: Ixodes, Haemaphysalis, Hyalomma, Amblyomma, Dermacentor, Rhipicephalus and Boophilus (Labuda & Nuttall, 2004). The tick microbiome consists of communities of viruses, bacteria and eukaryotes (Havlikova et al., 2013), among which several pathogens coexist within the commensal flora. Such pathogens of medical importance include Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) (Bente et al., 2013), Kyasanur
