Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome bunyavirus is a newly discovered bunyavirus with high pathogenicity to human. The transmission model has been largely uncharacterized. Investigation on a cluster of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome cases provided evidence of person-to-person transmission through blood contact to the index patient with(More)
To investigate the infections of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus (SFTSV) in domesticated animals, we sampled a total of 3,039 animals in 2 counties in Shandong Province, People's Republic of China, from April to November 2011. SFTSV-specific antibodies were detected in 328 (69.5%) of 472 sheep, 509 (60.5%) of 842 cattle, 136 (37.9%) of 359(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of dengue, an infectious disease caused by dengue virus (DENV), has dramatically increased around the world in recent decades and is becoming a severe public health threat. However, there is currently no specific treatment for dengue fever, and licensed vaccine against dengue is not available. Vaccination with virus-like particles(More)
Network virus propagation is influenced by various factors , and some of them are neglected in most of the existed models. So, mathematical model of network virus propagation is simplified. In fact, many factors are very important during the virus propagation. In this paper, we investigate epidemiological models to reason about email virus propagation. The(More)
Fingerprint classification is a fundamental method for the identification of people. Fingerprint classification is based on the immutability and the individuality of fingerprint. Because of the large collections of fingerprints and recent advances in computer technology , there has been increasing interest in automatic classification of fingerprint. In this(More)
ICE1 transcription factor plays an important role in plant cold stress via regulating the expression of stress-responsive genes. In this study, a PuICE1 gene isolated from Pyrus ussuriensis was characterized for its function in cold tolerance. The expression levels of the PuICE1 were induced by cold, dehydration and salt, with the greatest induction under(More)
