Anti-VP7 bluetongue virus (BTV) antibodies were detected in sera of ruminant livestock using competitive enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (c-ELISA). The per cent positivity for BTV antibodies recorded in sheep was 34.61% in Haryana, 7.14% in Himachal Pradesh and 28.88% in Punjab. Goat showed 64% positivity in Haryana, 67.34% in Himachal Pradesh and 88.33%(More)
Fluoride is toxic to neuronal development and its excessive intake during pregnancy cause adverse effects on neonatal development. The present study examined the presence of oxidative stress during maternal exposure of fluoride and the therapeutic strategy of Aloe vera, Curcuma longa and Ocimum sanctum extracts in functional prevention of fluoride led(More)
BALB/c mice infected with ts1, a mutant of Moloney murine leukemia virus-TB, develop generalized body wasting, profound neurologic disorders, severe thymic atrophy and lymphopenia due to destruction of T lymphocytes and drastic immunodeficiency. ts1 was found not only able to infect T lymphocytes but also to impair their function. In addition, ts1 also(More)
Newborn homozygous BALB/c nude (nu/nu) mice, their heterozygous (+/nu) littermates, and normal BALB/c (+/+) mice were infected with ts1, a paralytogenic mutant of Moloney murine leukemia virus-TB (MoMuLV-TB). Our results indicate that while infection of +/nu and +/+ mice with ts1 results in severe pathological changes in the central nervous system (CNS) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate 2 genetically engineered group-specific antigens: baculovirus- and yeast-expressed VP7 and the conventionally produced group-specific antigen of bluetongue virus (BTV), using dot immunobinding assay (DIA). SAMPLE POPULATION AND PROCEDURE: A total of 260 serum samples of sheep and cattle from various livestock farms in different Indian(More)

Gill is the main organ of osmotic regulation in teleosts and chloride cells are the sites of ion transport across gill epithelium. Thyroid hormones are implicated in the regulation of osmotic balance in teleosts also. Treatment with 6-propyl thiouracil (6-PTU) inhibited the membrane bound enzyme Na+K+ ATPase in the gill while triiodothyronine (T3) injection(More)
Neonatal BALB/c mice were inoculated (ip) with a recombinant Moloney murine leukemia virus-TB. Majority of the inoculated mice developed lymphoma within 5-7 months post infection. The cells from splenic lymphomas were cultured and 3 continuous cell lines (GP1, GP2 and GP3) developed. GP1 was single cell cloned and characterized. Based on Thy 1.2 (98.4%)(More)
