Susceptibility of ferrets, cats, dogs, and other domesticated animals to SARS–coronavirus 2
Alternative hosts and model animals The severe acute respiratory syndrome–coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic may have originated in bats, but how it made its way into humans is unknown. Because ofExpand

Properties and Dissemination of H5N1 Viruses Isolated during an Influenza Outbreak in Migratory Waterfowl in Western China
ABSTRACT H5N1 influenza A viruses are widely distributed among poultry in Asia, but until recently, only a limited number of wild birds were affected. During late April through June 2005, an outbreakExpand

Emergence and predominance of an H5N1 influenza variant in China
The development of highly pathogenic avian H5N1 influenza viruses in poultry in Eurasia accompanied with the increase in human infection in 2006 suggests that the virus has not been effectivelyExpand

Evolution of H9N2 influenza viruses from domestic poultry in Mainland China.
H9N2 viruses have circulated in domestic poultry in Mainland China since 1994, and an inactivated vaccine has been used in chickens to control the disease since 1998. The present study analyzed 27Expand

Are Ducks Contributing to the Endemicity of Highly Pathogenic H5N1 Influenza Virus in Asia?
ABSTRACT Wild waterfowl are the natural reservoir of all influenza A viruses, and these viruses are usually nonpathogenic in these birds. However, since late 2002, H5N1 outbreaks in Asia haveExpand

Protective efficacy in chickens, geese and ducks of an H5N1-inactivated vaccine developed by reverse genetics.
We generated a high-growth H5N1/PR8 virus by plasmid-based reverse genetics. The virulence associated multiple basic amino acids of the HA gene were removed, and the resulting virus is attenuated forExpand

Molecular Basis of Replication of Duck H5N1 Influenza Viruses in a Mammalian Mouse Model
ABSTRACT We recently analyzed a series of H5N1 viruses isolated from healthy ducks in southern China since 1999 and found that these viruses had progressively acquired the ability to replicate andExpand

The NS1 Gene Contributes to the Virulence of H5N1 Avian Influenza Viruses
ABSTRACT In the present study, we explored the genetic basis underlying the virulence and host range of two H5N1 influenza viruses in chickens. A/goose/Guangdong/1/96 (GS/GD/1/96) is a highlyExpand
