The major envelope glycoprotein genes (ORF5) of seven Czech isolates of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) were amplified and their nucleotide sequences were determined. ORF5 displayed nucleotide and amino acid identities of 87.5-100% and 87. 6-100%, respectively, among the isolates. In a phylogenetic tree, all European isolates(More)
Several bacteria-based assays, notably Vibrio fischeri luminescence assays, are often used as environmental monitoring tool for toxicity in sediments that may serve as both sinks and secondary source of contamination in aquatic ecosystems. In this study, we used 30-s kinetic bioassays based on V. fischeri to evaluate the toxicity associated to sediments(More)

Introduction The study of plastic marine debris in oceans is attracting attention due to the large amounts involved and the dangers it may pose 1,2. Floating plastics in the oceans can travel long distances 3,4. Other chemicals that may also be facilitated by this transport are the chemicals that are inherent in the plastics (which are added during(More)
