Borrelia mayonii is a newly-identified tick-borne pathogen of humans in the USA. Symptoms of B. mayonii infection include high-level bacteremia and diffuse macular rashes, which are distinct from those of its relative Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease agent. The proposed studies focus on elucidating the molecular mechanisms responsible for the unique pathogenic properties of B. mayonii.
