The complete DNA sequence and genome organization of the avian adenovirus, hemorrhagic enteritis virus.
Hemorrhagic enteritis virus (HEV) belongs to the Adenoviridae family, a subgroup of adenoviruses (Ads) that infect avian species. In this article, the complete DNA sequence and the genomeExpand

Isolation and characterization of three class II MHC genomic clones from the chicken.
A genomic library was constructed from sperm DNA from an individual of the inbred chicken line G-B2, MHC haplotype B6. The library was screened with a chicken class II probe (beta 2 exon specific)Expand

Development and large-scale use of recombinant VP2 vaccine for the prevention of infectious bursal disease of chickens.
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is the causative agent of Gumboro disease, an infectious disease of global economic importance in poultry. One of the most effective types of inactivated IBDVExpand

A melanoma multiepitope polypeptide induces specific CD8+ T-cell response.
Strategies using epitope-based vaccination are being considered for melanoma immunotherapy, in an attempt to overcome failure of other modalities. In the present study, we designed and produced aExpand

B subunit of E. coli enterotoxin as adjuvant and carrier in oral and skin vaccination.
Mucosal sites are one of the main natural ports of entry into the body. Stimulation of a local response by antibodies as the systemic protection may enhance the efficacy of non-living vaccines, andExpand

Viral protein 1 sequence analysis of three infectious bursal disease virus strains: a very virulent virus, its attenuated form, and an attenuated vaccine.
Comparisons between sequences of very virulent, virulent, and attenuated strains of the infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) may indicate sites on the genome co-inciding with virulence. In anExpand

Melanoma antigens and related immunological markers.
Melanoma is a highly lethal cancer deriving from transformed dermal melanocytes. Early diagnosed primary melanoma may be curable, but the cure-rate of more advanced stages is limited, with highExpand

Coding region of segment A sequence of a very virulent isolate of IBDV--comparison with isolates from different countries and virulence.
We determined the sequence of the coding region of segment A, coding for the viral proteins (VPs) VP2, VP4, and VP3, of a very virulent (vv) infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) isolated in IsraelExpand

Selection for early responsiveness of chicks to Escherichia coli and Newcastle disease virus.
A broiler chicken population was divergently selected for high or low early immune responses to Escherichia coli and to Newcastle disease virus (NDV) vaccines. Four selection cycles were performed inExpand

Vaccine and adjuvant activity of recombinant subunit B of E. coli enterotoxin produced in yeast.
Escherichia coli heat-labile enterotoxin (LT) and cholera toxin (CT) have been studied intensively as vaccines against diseases caused by those bacteria and as adjuvants for mucosal vaccination. TwoExpand
