Coronavirus-like viruses, designated peafowl/China/LKQ3/2003 (pf/CH/LKQ3/03) and teal/China/LDT3/2003 (tl/CH/LDT3/03), were isolated from a peafowl and a teal during virological surveillance in Guangdong province, China. Partial genomic sequence analysis showed that these isolates had the S-3-M-5-N gene order that is typical of avian coronaviruses. The(More)
Since late 2010, porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) has rapidly disseminated all over the China and caused considerable morbidity and high mortality (up to 100%) in neonatal piglets. 79.66% (141 of 177) pig farms in 29 provinces (excluding Tibet and Hainan, China) and 72.27% (417 of 577) samples were positive for PEDV confirmed by reverse(More)
Seven overlapping truncated forms of the C subunit of porcine aminopeptidase N (pAPN-C) were expressed in Escherichia coli. By western blotting and ELISA test, all recombinant proteins were recognized by the antibody against native porcine aminopeptidase N. Recombinant proteins, rpAPN-C2 (aa 623–722) and rpAPN-C3 (aa 673–772), had the highest binding(More)
In this study, we report the complete nucleotide sequence of porcine kobuvirus CH/HZ/2011 (CH/HZ) isolated from infected piglets in China. Dendrograms indicated that CH/HZ is closely related to other porcine kobuviruses. The complete genome sequence of CH/HZ has an adenine insertion at position 124, an 18-nt deletion in the 5′UTR, and a 90-nt deletion in(More)
Transmissible gastroenteritis coronavirus (TGEV) is an enteropathogenic coronavirus that causes diarrhea in pigs, which is correlated with high morbidity and mortality in suckling piglets. Information remains limited about the comparative protein expression of host cells in response to TGEV infection. In this study, cellular protein response to TGEV(More)
We aimed at identifying the cerebral hemodynamic characteristics of acute mountain sickness (AMS). Transcranial Doppler (TCD) sonography examinations were performed between 18 and 24 h after arrival at 3,700 m via plane from 500 m (n = 454). A subgroup of 151 subjects received TCD examinations at both altitudes. The velocities of the middle cerebral artery,(More)
The fifth most important G genotype, G9 rotavirus, is recognized as an emerging genotype that is spreading around the world. Sequence analysis was completed of a rare group A rotavirus, strain G9P[23], that was designated rotavirus A pig/China/NMTL/2008/G9P[23] and abbreviated as NMTL. It was isolated from a piglet with diarrhea in China. Nucleotide(More)
BACKGROUND This randomized, open-label, multicenter, phase II clinical trial was conducted to assess the anti-tumor efficacy and safety of replication-deficient adenovirus mutant thymidine kinase (ADV-TK) in combination with ganciclovir administration in patients with recurrent high-grade glioma (HGG). PATIENTS AND METHODS 53 patients with recurrent HGG(More)
The nucleolus is a dynamic subnuclear structure, which is crucial to the normal operation of the eukaryotic cell. The porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), coronavirus nucleocapsid (N) protein, plays important roles in the process of virus replication and cellular infection. Virus infection and transfection showed that N protein was predominately(More)
Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) is a coronavirus that infects cells lining the small intestine of swine, resulting in vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration. The amino acid sequence of the spike (S) protein, which is the principal target recognized by host immune cells, has multiple mutations that distinguish the two PEDV genotypes, G1 and G2. To(More)
