A. phagocytophilum also utilizes a secreted tick protein (P11) to infect haemocytes, enabling it to move from the midgut to the salivary glands in haemolymph. Such interactions are likely a result of the prolonged coevolution of arthropods and the microorganisms that they carry. The infectious agents transmitted by arthropods produce disease by a complex pathogenesis that may in part involve secondary immune-mediated phenomena. Both arthropod and microorganism may be involved in manipulating the host immune system to induce these sequelae to infection.

E. ticks). 1). 2). Additionally, the presence of organisms within an arthropod may modify its behaviour. For example, Borrelia-infected ticks have altered questing behaviour, which provides them with an advantage in terms of acquiring their target host. In contrast, Leishmania-infected sand flies also have modified feeding behaviour, but here the advantage is to the microorganism rather than the arthropod. The plug of Leishmania parasites within the proventriculus interferes with the intake of blood, making it necessary for the sandfly to probe the host dermis more frequently.

Treg cells suppress immune responses by virtue of the production of cytokines such as IL-10 or transforming growth factor (TGF)-β. Treg cells may be induced during the course of an active immune response to foreign antigen (an induced Treg) or may be present continually within the body in order to control effector T cells that might promote a deleterious autoimmune response (natural Tregs). However, not all regulation is mediated via IL-10 production from classical Treg cells. It appears that there is ‘plasticity’ in the function of Th1 and Th2 cells, which means that these too can become a source of IL-10 and have some immunoregulatory function.
