Detection and identification of equine herpesvirus-1 and -4 by polymerase chain reaction.
The PCR system could differentiate the two virus types rapidly in a one-step reaction and there was complete accordance between the results of PCR and virus isolation. Expand
Detection of cytokines in bovine colostrum.
Colostrum contains factors that are protective for the neonate and may be a source of immunomodulary molecules that positively influence the immune status of the neonate. To confirm that colostrumExpand
Changes in interleukin-6 concentration in peripheral blood of pre- and post-partum dairy cattle and its relationship to postpartum reproductive diseases.
The results indicate that measurement of change in the IL-6 concentration during pregnancy is one useful tool for predicting crisis in postpartum reproductive diseases in dairy cattle. Expand
Detection of interleukin-1 and interleukin-6 on cryopreserved bovine mammary epithelial cells in vitro.
The results indicate that bovine mammary epithelial cells of lactating cows produce IL-1 and IL-6 and have gene expression for multiple cytokines by RT-PCR in mammary cell cultures. Expand
Effects of bacterial flora on cecal size and transit rate of intestinal contents in mice.
Concentrations of IL-6 in Serum and Whey from Healthy and Mastitic Cows
Results suggest that serum IL-6 concentrations may be of prognostic value in identifying cows with severe mastitis. Expand
Interferon-gamma and tumor necrosis factor-alpha levels in sera and whey of cattle with naturally occurring coliform mastitis.
Concentrations of interferon-gamma (lFN-gamma) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) were determined in serum and whey samples from cattle with naturally occurring coliform mastitis for twoExpand
Variation of Virulence and Other Properties among Sendai Virus Strains
The results indicate that Sendai virus prevailing in laboratory rodents is not homogenous with respect to virulence and some other properties. Expand
Comparative lung pathology of inbred strain of mice resistant and susceptible to Sendai virus infection.
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) was detected immunohistologically in edematous perivascular regions and in some mononuclear cells infiltrating to the regions, suggesting that TNF is involved in the development of lung lesions by SV infection in the three mouse strains. Expand
Detection of Borna disease virus in a pregnant mare and her fetus.
A pregnant mare showing pyrexia, reduced appetite, ataxia and paresis, and the histologically normal brain of the fetus were both positive for BDV RNA, the first report of the possible vertical transmission of BDV in a horse. Expand
