Isolation of a Novel Swine Influenza Virus from Oklahoma in 2011 Which Is Distantly Related to Human Influenza C Viruses
Results suggest that C/OK virus represents a new subtype of influenza C viruses that currently circulates in pigs that has not been recognized previously and raises the possibility of reassortment and antigenic shift as mechanisms of influenzaC virus evolution.
Spontaneous and Experimental Glycoprotein Storage Disease of Goats Induced by Ipomoea carnea subsp fistulosa (Convolvulaceae)
It is concluded that I fistulosa induces a glycoprotein storage disease primarily based on the inhibition of the lysosomal α-mannosidase by the alkaloid swainsonine.
Epidemiological considerations of rodent community composition in fragmented landscapes in Panama
It is likely that forest fragmentation has contributed to recent outbreaks of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in tropical areas, and the change in the natural environment resulting from tropical deforestation is increasing the abundance and distribution of species that are reservoirs for hantsaviruses.
Chronic Cortical and Subcortical Pathology with Associated Neurological Deficits Ensuing Experimental Herpes Encephalitis
A detailed, systematic analysis of chronic neuropathology is presented, including characterization of topography and sequential progression of degenerative lesions and inflammation, to further investigate the mechanisms of neurological defects that follow in the wake of HSE.
The Effect of Habitat Fragmentation and Species Diversity Loss on Hantavirus Prevalence in Panama
The studies suggest that habitat loss and fragmentation and species diversity loss are altering hantavirus infection dynamics in Panama and suggest that greater diversity likely reduces encounter rates between infected and susceptible hosts.
Spring viremia of carp virus in Minnehaha Creek, Minnesota.
The first report of SVCV within the state of Minnesota and the ninth documented case in North America is reported, and the virus was confirmed to be S VCV subtype Ia by reverse transcription PCR and sequencing.
Clinical Findings, Lesions, and Viral Antigen Distribution in Great Gray Owls (Strix nebulosa) and Barred Owls (Strix varia) with Spontaneous West Nile Virus Infection
The clinicopathologic findings and WNV antigen tissue distribution of six great gray owls and two barred owls with WNV infection are described, which suggest that the cause of the different manifestations of WNV disease in these fairly closely related owl species is uncertain.
Identification and Characterization of a Spore-Like Morphotype in Chronically Starved Mycobacterium avium Subsp. Paratuberculosis Cultures
Data suggest that sporulation may be a viable mechanism by which MAP accomplishes persistence in the host and/or environment, and current understanding of mycobacterial persistence, pathogenesis, epidemiology and rational drug and vaccine design may need to be reevaluated.
Sarcocystis calchasi-associated neurologic disease in a domestic pigeon in North America.
Tissue cysts of a protozoan parasite were present in the skeletal muscle of a domestic pigeon (Columba livia f. domestica) with neurologic disease in Minnesota, USA. The animal had a severe
