Effects of cyclic hydrostatic pressure on proteoglycan synthesis in cultured chondrocytes and articular cartilage explants.
Primary chondrocyte cell cultures and explants of bovine articular cartilage were subjected to cyclic hydrostatic pressure in a novel computer-controlled pressure chamber designed for this purpose.Expand

Isolation and characterization of Dobrava hantavirus carried by the striped field mouse (Apodemus agrarius) in Estonia.
Dobrava hantavirus (DOB) was isolated from the striped field mouse (Apodemus agrarius) trapped on Saaremaa Island, Estonia, and its genetic and antigenic characteristics were subsequently analysed.Expand

Genetic variation of wild Puumala viruses within the serotype, local rodent populations and individual animal.
Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction cloning and sequencing were used to determine the range of S gene/N protein variability in wild Puumala virus (PUU) strains and to study phylogeneticExpand

Multiple parasites mediate balancing selection at two MHC class II genes in the fossorial water vole: insights from multivariate analyses and population genetics
We investigated the factors mediating selection acting on two MHC class II genes (DQA and DRB) in water vole (Arvicola scherman) natural populations in the French Jura Mountains. Population geneticsExpand

Molecular evolution of puumala hantavirus in Fennoscandia: phylogenetic analysis of strains from two recolonization routes, Karelia and Denmark.
Like other members of the genus HANTAVIRUS: in the family BUNYAVIRIDAE:, Puumala virus (PUUV) is thought to be co-evolving with its natural host, the bank vole Clethrionomys glareolus. To gainExpand

Haemogregarines of the genus Hepatozoon (Apicomplexa: Adeleina) in rodents from northern Europe.
We studied the prevalence and distribution of Hepatozoon infections in small rodents from Finland and other areas in northern Europe. Hepatozoon infections were more common in voles (Arvicolinae)Expand

Environmental Change and Disease Dynamics: Effects of Intensive Forest Management on Puumala Hantavirus Infection in Boreal Bank Vole Populations
Intensive management of Fennoscandian forests has led to a mosaic of woodlands in different stages of maturity. The main rodent host of the zoonotic Puumala hantavirus (PUUV) is the bank vole (MyodesExpand

Kinship, dispersal and hantavirus transmission in bank and common voles
Hantaviruses are among the main emerging infectious agents in Europe. Their mode of transmission in natura is still not well known. In particular, social features and behaviours could be crucial forExpand
