Experimental infection of mice with Sendai virus (SeV) is frequently used as a model of viral pathogenesis of human respiratory disease. To understand the differences in host response to SeV among mice strains, we carried out genetic mapping studies in DBA/2 (D2) (susceptible) and C57BL/6 (B6) (resistant) mice. F(1), F(2), and N(2) backcrossed mice were(More)
Respiratory viral infections result in severe pulmonary injury, to which host immune response may be a significant contributor. At present, it is not entirely clear the extent to which lung injury is a necessary consequence of host defense. In this report, we use functional genomics approach to characterize the key roles of cellular immunity and(More)
Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a severe hepatic disorder caused by larval infection by the fox tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis. The course of parasitic development and host reactions are known to vary significantly among host species, and even among different inbred strains of mice. As reported previously, after oral administration of parasite eggs,(More)
