Prion gene sequence variation within diverse groups of U.S. sheep, beef cattle, and deer
The estimation of PRNP allele and genotype frequencies within these diverse groups of sheep, cattle, and deer provides a framework for designing accurate genotype assays for use in genetic epidemiology, allele management, and disease control. Expand
Differential antibody responses to Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis in sheep with naturally acquired caseous lymphadenitis.
Investigations indicate that those ELISA that use crude C pseudotuberculosis antigens are of questionable utility in the field, where C pseudOTuberculosis infection is endemic in many sheep populations, and suggest that antibodies that are reactive with components of C pseudtuberculosis and that develop in response to infection may have little impact on the recovery of the host.

Antigen specificity of antibody responses to Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis in naturally infected sheep with caseous lymphadenitis.
There was no apparent relationship between the stage of disease and the response to specific corynebacterial antigens in these animals. Expand
Antigen specificity and activity of ovine antibodies induced by immunization with Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis culture filtrate.
Results indicate that immunization with soluble C. pseudotuberculosis antigen preparations that have been used in toxoid vaccines induces antibody responses to numerous cellular antigens in addition to exotoxin and suggest that serologically mediated antibacterial effects could be an important component in the protection from disease that has been reported following immunization.
