Isolation and molecular characterization of equine H3N8 influenza viruses from pigs in China
During 2004–2006 swine influenza virus surveillance, two strains of H3N8 influenza viruses were isolated from pigs in central China. Sequence and phylogenetic analyses of eight gene segments revealed… Expand
Comparative genomic analysis of Streptococcus suis reveals significant genomic diversity among different serotypes
BackgroundStreptococcus suis (S. suis) is a major swine pathogen and an emerging zoonotic agent. Serotypes 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 14 and 1/2 are the most prevalent serotypes of this pathogen. However, almost… Expand

Mastitis is one of the largest production concerns in the dairy industry worldwide. Mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus is a major concern to the dairy industry because of its resistance to… Expand
Identification and characterization of IgA1 protease from Streptococcus suis.
Streptococcus suis (S. suis) is a major swine pathogen and an emerging zoonotic agent. However, the current understanding of the S. suis pathogenesis of infection remains limited. In the present… Expand

Streptococcus suis (S. suis) is an emerging zoonotic pathogen causing significant economic losses in the swine industry. Here, we investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility, associated… Expand
Response of swine spleen to Streptococcus suis infection revealed by transcription analysis
AstractBackgroundStreptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2), a major swine pathogen and an emerging zoonotic agent, has greatly challenged global public health. Systematical information about host immune… Expand
The Special Neuraminidase Stalk-Motif Responsible for Increased Virulence and Pathogenesis of H5N1 Influenza A Virus
The variation of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 virus results in gradually increased virulence in poultry, and human cases continue to accumulate. The neuraminidase (NA) stalk region of… Expand
Identification and characterization of novel immunogenic outer membrane proteins of Haemophilus parasuis serovar 5.
Haemophilus parasuis is the aetiological agent of Glässer's disease, which is responsible for cases of fibrinous polyserositis, polyarthritis and meningitis in young pigs. To develop more effective… Expand
Identification and characterization of a novel protective antigen, Enolase of Streptococcus suis serotype 2.
Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) is a porcine and human pathogen with adhesive and invasive properties. The absence of suitable vaccine or virulent marker can be the bottleneck to control SS2… Expand
Evaluation of the protective efficacy of a newly identified immunogenic protein, HP0272, of Streptococcus suis.
Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) infection is a major cause of sudden death in pigs and is of concern for humans as it has strong zoonotic capabilities. Developing novel effective vaccines would… Expand
