Serum samples from 51 apparently healthy breeding bulls were screened for bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) antibodies using an avidin-biotin enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, revealing a sero-positive prevalence rate of 45.09%. Semen samples were then collected from 12 of the sero-positive and 12 of the sero-negative bulls and tested for BHV-1 antigen using(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive bacterium that causes a variety of diseases, including bovine mastitis, which has severe economic consequences. Standard antibiotic treatment results in selection of resistant strains, leading to need for an alternative treatment such as bacteriophage therapy. Present study describes isolation and characterization of(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells capable of differentiating into various cell types, including osteocytes, chondrocytes, adipocytes, myocytes, and tenocytes. They are being highly investigated in tissue engineering and regenerative studies. This study was carried out to isolate, identify and examine the differentiation potential of canine(More)
Brucellosis is a disease caused by Brucella sp which is an aerobic, non-spore forming, non-motile gram negative coccobacillus. It is a National Institute of Health category B bioterror threat agent that causes incapacitating zoonosis. It is an emerging zoonosis, and an economically important infection of humans and livestock with a worldwide distribution.(More)
AIM This study was aimed at evaluating the anti-apoptotic effects of Bcl-2 protein in cryopreserved buffalo bull sperm. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total 10 ejaculates from two buffalo bulls (5 each) were collected using artificial vagina method, and semen was evaluated using a standard protocol. Semen was extended by Tris egg yolk extender supplemented with(More)
Canine distemper (CD), caused by canine distemper virus (CDV) is a highly contagious disease that infects a variety of carnivores. Sequence analysis of CDVs from different geographical areas has shown a lot of variation in the genome of the virus especially in haemagglutinin gene which might be one of the causes of vaccine failure. In this study, we(More)
The data described are related to the article entitled "Sequence Analysis of Meq oncogene among Indian isolates of Marek׳s Disease Herpesvirus" M. Gupta, D. Deka, Ramneek, 2016. Seven meq genes of Ludhiana Marek׳s disease virus (MDV) field isolates were PCR amplified by using proof reading Platinum Pfx DNA polymerase enzyme, sequenced and then analyzed for(More)
Bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) glycoprotein C (gC) is an immunodominant protein that is believed to play a role in initial viral attachment. In the present study a recombinant baculovirus was constructed by incorporating BHV-1 gC coding gene to characterize the expression of the glycoprotein in infected Spodoptera frugiperda cells. The BHV-1 complete gC gene(More)
The present investigation was conducted to study the genetic heterogenicity and molecular polymorphism among the field isolates and vaccine strains of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV). Samples of bursa of Fabricius from 15 suspected outbreaks of infectious bursal disease (IBD) were subjected to agar gel precipitation test (AGPT), virus isolation and(More)
AIM The active domains (TIR and NACHT) of the pattern recognition receptors (PRRs: Toll-like receptors [TLRs] and nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain [NOD]-like receptors [NLR], respectively) are the major hotspots of evolution as natural selection has crafted their final structure by substitution of residues over time. This paper addresses the(More)
