Caprine PRNP polymorphisms at codons 171, 211, 222 and 240 in a Greek herd and their association with classical scrapie.
The association between PRNP variation and scrapie incidence was investigated in a highly affected Greek goat herd. Four mutations were identified at codons 171Q/R, 211R/Q, 222Q/K and 240P/S. LysineExpand
Neurotropic Astrovirus in Cattle with Nonsuppurative Encephalitis in Europe
ABSTRACT Encephalitis is a frequently diagnosed condition in cattle with neurological diseases. Many affected animals present with a nonsuppurative inflammatory reaction pattern in the brain. WhileExpand

Identification of a second encephalitis-associated astrovirus in cattle
Dear Editor, Human astroviruses are of particular importance as one of the most common pathogens that cause juvenile gastroenteritis. In recent years, several astrovirus isolates were identified asExpand
Exploring the virome of cattle with non-suppurative encephalitis of unknown etiology by metagenomics.
Non-suppurative encephalitis is one of the most frequent pathological diagnosis in cattle with neurological disease, but there is a gap in the knowledge on disease-associated pathogens. In order toExpand
Detection of Astrovirus in Historical Cases of European Sporadic Bovine Encephalitis, Switzerland 1958–1976
European sporadic bovine encephalitis is a frequent diagnosis in neurologically diseased cattle, but its etiology remained unresolved. Using in situ hybridization, we have detected a recentlyExpand
Assessment of bluetongue viraemia in sheep by real-time PCR and correlation with viral infectivity.
Inoculation of embryonated chicken eggs is the standard method for the titration of infectious Bluetongue virus (BTV). Here, six RNA extraction methods coupled with optimised dsRNA denaturation andExpand
