Classical swine fever is a contagious disease of pigs characterized by fatal hemorrhagic fever. Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) induces the expression of pro-inflammatory and pro-coagulant factors of vascular endothelial cells and establishes a long-term infection. This study aimed to understand the effect of CSFV on endothelial connexin 43 (Cx43)(More)
Classical swine fever (CSF) causes severe disease in pigs, characterized by hemorrhage, fever, and leucopenia. A primary target of the virus is endothelial cells, where a pro-inflammatory and pro-coagulant response occurs with downregulation of gap junctional communication; these changes establish a basis for haemostatic imbalance. The aim of this study was(More)
