Loss of Apc heterozygosity and abnormal tissue building in nascent intestinal polyps in mice carrying a truncated Apc gene.
Mutations in the APC (adenomatous polyposis coli) gene appear to be responsible for not only familial adenomatous polyposis but also many sporadic cases of gastrointestinal cancers. Using homologousExpand
Potential for transmission of avian influenza viruses to pigs.
Pandemic strains of influenza A virus arise by genetic reassortment between avian and human viruses. Pigs have been suggested to generate such reassortants as intermediate hosts. In order for pigs toExpand
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in rabbit haemorrhagic disease.
Seven rabbits experimentally infected with rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus were examined haematologically and histologically. Haematologically, activated partial thromboplastin time and prothrombinExpand
Hereditary hypotrophic axonopathy with neurofilament deficiency in a mutant strain of the Japanese quail
SummaryA primary axonal disease affecting the central and peripheral nervous system was discovered in a new mutant strain of the Japanese quail, named quiver (Quv). Quv showed significantly smallerExpand
Distribution of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus RNA in experimentally infected rabbits.
Adult rabbits were inoculated with liver homogenate from a rabbit that died in a Japanese outbreak of rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD). All experimentally infected rabbits died with typicalExpand
Histopathology and immunohistochemistry of renal lesions due to infectious bronchitis virus in chicks.
Two-day-old specific-pathogen-free chicks were inoculated intranasally with the MA-87 strain of infectious bronchitis virus, and trachea and kidney lesions studied histologically andExpand
Aspergillosis and candidiasis in psittacine and passeriforme birds with particular reference to nasal lesions.
High incidences of aspergillosis (12.9%) and candidiasis (15.4%) were encountered in 241 psittacines and passeriformes which died within 2 weeks of quarantine after being imported into Japan.Expand
Herpesvirus infections in psittacine birds in Japan.
Herpesvirus infection was diagnosed histologically and electron microscopically in 21 out of 241 pet birds examined. The infected birds included 14 parakeets (Psittacula krameri manillensis) withExpand
Neuropathological studies of chickens infected with highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.
Central nervous system lesions of chickens inoculated with three highly pathogenic avian influenza virus strains, A/chicken/Victoria/1/85 (H7N7), A/turkey/England/50-92/91 (H5N1), and A/tern/SouthExpand
Pathological studies of chickens experimentally infected with two highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.
Lesions of chickens inoculated with two highly pathogenic avian influenza virus strains, A/turkey/England/50-92/91 (H5N1) and A/chicken/Victoria/1/85 (H7N7) were examined histologically andExpand
