Kobuvirus is a new genus in the family Picornaviridae. Two species are currently known: Aichi virus (human kobuvirus) and Bovine kobuvirus (U-1). In this study, the complete nucleotide and amino acid sequences and genetic organization of porcine kobuvirus (Kobuvirus/swine/S-1-HUN/2007/Hungary, EU787450) were determined. The structure of the S-1-HUN genome,(More)
which excluded false-positive results because of amplicon contamination. The second case was identifi ed among the 86 sheep investigated. Placenta and fetal lung and liver exhibited necrotizing placentitis and vasculitis (Figure, panel A), interstitial pneumonia (Figure, panel B), and mixed cellular periportal hepatitis. Fetal liver was negative by(More)
Aichi virus, genus Kobuvirus, family Picornaviridae, has been proposed as a causative agent of gastroenteritis in human. Although high seroprevalence has been detected, it has been identified in only a few cases. We report detection of Aichi virus in Hungary. A total of 65 stool samples were tested retrospectively, collected from children with diarrhea, by(More)
Wheat plants which are exposed to periods of low temperatures (cold acclimation) exhibit increased survival rates when they are subsequently exposed to freezing temperatures. This process is associated with large-scale changes in the transcriptome which are modulated by a set of tandemly duplicated C-repeat Binding Factor (CBF) transcription factors located(More)
Data from couples (n = 103) seeking artificial insemination with donor sperm because of poor sperm quality and a control group of couples treated by in-vitro fertilization due to female causes were analysed according to the occupations of the spouses. Comparison of occupational categories revealed a significant difference in the prevalence of agricultural(More)
UNLABELLED C-repeat binding factor 14 (CBF14) is a plant transcription factor that regulates a set of cold-induced genes, contributing to enhanced frost tolerance during cold acclimation. Many CBF genes are induced by cool temperatures and regulated by day length and light quality, which affect the amount of accumulated freezing tolerance. Here we show that(More)
As both abiotic stress response and development are under redox control, it was hypothesised that the pharmacological modification of the redox environment would affect the initial development of flower primordia and freezing tolerance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Pharmacologically induced redox changes were monitored in winter (T. ae. ssp. aestivum cv.(More)
It was assumed that salt-induced redox changes affect amino acid metabolism in maize (Zea mays L.), and this influence may be modified by NO. The applied NaCl treatment reduced the fresh weight of shoots and roots. This decrease was smaller after the combined application of NaCl and an NO-donor(More)
Wheat is the leading source of vegetable protein in the human diet, and metabolites are crucial for both plant development and human nutrition. The recent advances in metabolomics provided an opportunity to perform an untargeted metabolite analysis in this important crop. Wheat was characterised at the metabolite level during cold acclimation and transition(More)
The wheat and barley CBF14 genes have been newly defined as key components of the light quality-dependent regulation of the freezing tolerance by the integration of phytochrome-mediated light and temperature signals. To further investigate the wavelength dependence of light-induced CBF14 expression in cereals, we carried out a detailed study using(More)
