The complete genomic sequence of a BLV strain from a Holstein cow from Argentina.
DNA was extracted from the peripheral blood of a seropositive, PCR-positive, BLV-infected Holstein cow (No. 38) from Argentina. The DNA was amplified via PCR with a series of overlapping primersExpand

Association of BLV infection profiles with alleles of the BoLA-DRB3.2 gene.
Bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) causes lymphosarcoma and persistent lymphocytosis (PL). Some MHC class II gene polymorphisms have been associated with resistance and susceptibility to the development ofExpand

Determination of proviral load in bovine leukemia virus-infected cattle with and without lymphocytosis.
OBJECTIVE To determine proviral load in bovine leukemia virus (BLV)-infected cattle with and without persistent lymphocytosis to assess the potential of transmitting the virus. ANIMALS Cattle in 6Expand

Differential regulation of putrescine uptake in Trypanosoma cruzi and other trypanosomatids.
Putrescine uptake in Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes is 10 to 50-fold higher than in Leishmania mexicana or Crithidia fasciculata. Polyamine transport in all these trypanosomatids is anExpand

Sensitivity of trypanosomatid protozoa to DFMO and metabolic turnover of ornithine decarboxylase.
alpha-Difluoromethylornithine (DFMO), the specific and irreversible inhibitor of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), was able to induce the arrest of proliferation in Leishmania mexicana andExpand

Cloning of a trypanosomatid gene coding for an ornithine decarboxylase that is metabolically unstable even though it lacks the C-terminal degradation domain.
Mammalian ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) is among the most labile of cellular proteins, with a half-life of usually less than an hour. Like other short-lived proteins ODC is degraded by the 26SExpand

The complete genomic sequence of an in vivo low replicating BLV strain
DNA was extracted from lamb lymphocytes that were infected in vivo with a BLV strain after inoculation with the peripheral blood mononuclear cells from a persistently sero-indeterminate, low viralExpand

Ornithine decarboxylase from Crithidia fasciculata is metabolically unstable and resistant to polyamine down‐regulation
Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) of Crithidia fasciculata extracts shows maximal activity during exponential growth of the parasite and decreases markedly in the stationary phase. The inhibition ofExpand

Chicken Antibodies: A Useful Tool for Antigen Capture ELISA to Detect Bovine Leukaemia Virus without Cross-reaction with Other Mammalian Antibodies
The 24 kDa protein from the gag of the bovine leukaemia virus was cloned and expressed as a fusion protein GST-p24. This recombinant protein was then used to immunize a Leghorn chicken. The partiallyExpand
