In this paper, we present a survey on management mechanisms used for ensuring the Quality-of-Services for Voice-over-IP applications. We first address the motivations of QoS management for VoIP. We then partition the system into two management planes: data plane and control plane, and describe mechanisms in each plane respectively. In data plane, we cover(More)
The aim of this study was to establish a method that could differentiate antibodies against live and inactivated vaccines of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV). A blocking ELISA (b-ELISA) was established using the PRRSV non-structural protein, Nsp9, as the antigen and a monoclonal antibody, 2D6, against the Nsp9 protein as the(More)
In 2004, H9N2 influenza A viruses were isolated from pigs with respiratory syndrome in commercial swine farms in Henan province, China. Antigenic and genetic characterization were performed for seven swine H9N2 influenza viruses. The hemagglutinin antigenicity of swine H9N2 viruses was similar to those of avian H9N2 viruses of A/duck/Hong Kong/Y280/1997(More)
Newcastle disease (ND) is a highly contagious disease of poultry caused by Newcastle disease virus (NDV). Multiple genotypes of NDV have been circulating worldwide and NDV is continuously evolving, resulting into more diversity. Of multiple viral genotypes, VII is particularly important given that it had been associated with most recent ND outbreaks(More)
BACKGROUND Human-like H3N2 influenza viruses have repeatedly been transmitted to domestic pigs in different regions of the world, but it is still uncertain whether any of these variants could become established in pig populations. The fact that different subtypes of influenza viruses have been detected in pigs makes them an ideal candidate for the genesis(More)
Newcastle disease virus (NDV) has only a single serotype but diversified genotypes. Genotype VII strains are the prevalent currently circulating genotype worldwide, and in particular, these strains cause outbreaks in waterfowl. In this study, a reverse genetics system for highly virulent NDV isolated from goose flocks was developed independent of(More)
Recently, poly-γ-glutamic acid synthetase A (pgsA) has been applied to display exogenous proteins on the surface of Lactobacillus casei or Lactococcus lactis, which results in a surfacedisplayed component of bacteria. However, the ability of carrying genes encoded by plasmids and the expression efficiency of recombinant bacteria can be somewhat affected by(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertension is considered the most serious risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitory peptides (ACEIPs), which are made from tuna frame protein (TFP) and yellow fin sole frame protein (YFP), have been used previously to treat hypertension. However, the production of these short peptides is usually dependent(More)
Mast cell (MC) degranulation can break peripheral immune tolerance. However, its mechanism remains unclear. Our goal was to study the stabilization of MC membranes by heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) in order to influence dendritic cell (DC) function. Mast cells and dendritic cells were prepared from 8-week-old to 10-week-old C57BL/6 mice; spleen mononuclear cells(More)
A study of 426 rabbits from 3 cities in Jilin province (Changchun City and Jilin City) and Liaoning province (Shenyang City) was conducted between May and June 2015. The overall prevalence of E. bieneusi in rabbits was 0.94% (4/426), with 0% (0/116), 1.72% (3/174), and 0.74% (1/136) in Jilin, Changchun, and Shenyang City, respectively. Only 3 farms (farm 1(More)
