To determine if eastern North American Ixodes dammini, like related
ticks in Eurasia, maintain tick-borne encephalitis group viruses, we
analyzed ticks collected from sites where the agent of Lyme disease is
zoonotic. Two viral isolates were obtained by inoculating mice with
homogenates from tick salivary glands. The virus, which was described
by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction and direct
sequencing of the amplification products, was similar to, but distinct
from, Powassan virus and is provisionally named "deer tick virus."
Enzootic tick-borne encephalitis group viruses accompany the agents of
Lyme disease, babesiosis, and granulocytic ehrlichiosis in a Holarctic
assemblage of emergent deer tick pathogens.
