Recent epidemics of West Nile virus (WNV) around the world have been associated with significant rates of mortality and morbidity in humans. To develop standard WNV diagnostic tools that can differentiate WNV from Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), four monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) specific to WNV envelope (E) protein were produced and characterized by(More)
NS1 of influenza A virus is a key multifunctional protein that plays various roles in regulating viral replication mechanisms, host innate/adaptive immune responses, and cellular signalling pathways. These functions rely on its ability to participate in a multitude of protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions. To gain further insight into the role of(More)
The virulence of A/Vietnam/1194/2004 (VN1194) in mice attenuated after serial passages in MDCK cells and chicken embryos, because the enriched large-plaque variants of the virus had significantly reduced virulence. In contrast, the small-plaque variants of the virus and the variants isolated from the brain of mice that were infected with the parental virus(More)
Amur virus (AMRV) is a member of the genus Hantavirus in the family Bunyaviridae. In this study, we determined for the first time the complete genome sequence of the AMRV H8205 strain, which was isolated from a patient with hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in China. The complete nucleotide sequence of the S segment of AMRV H8205 is 1699 nt long,(More)
