Adamantane-Resistant Influenza A Viruses in the World (1902–2013): Frequency and Distribution of M2 Gene Mutations
TLDR
Concerns about the increasing prevalence of adamantane-resistant influenza A viruses are raised and the importance of monitoring the emergence and worldwide spread of adamantanes-resistant variants is highlighted.
Phylogenetic Diversity and Genotypical Complexity of H9N2 Influenza A Viruses Revealed by Genomic Sequence Analysis
TLDR
The results indicate that H9N2 viruses have undergone extensive reassortments to generate multiple reassortants and genotypes, suggesting that the continued circulation of multiple genotypical H9n2 viruses throughout the world in diverse hosts has the potential to cause future influenza outbreaks in poultry and epidemics in humans.
Relationship between domestic and wild birds in live poultry market and a novel human H7N9 virus in China.
TLDR
It is suggested that the live poultry markets are the major source of recent human infections with H7N9 in Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province of China and control measures are needed, not only in the domestic bird population, but also in the liveoultry markets to reduce human H7n9 infection risk.
Genetic Characterization of Continually Evolving Highly Pathogenic H5N6 Influenza Viruses in China, 2012–2016
TLDR
An increase in the number of its identified hosts, the expanding range of its distribution, and the continual evolution of H5N6 AIVs enhance the risk that an H4N6 virus may spread to other continents and cause a pandemic.
Reassortant H9N2 Influenza Viruses Containing H5N1-Like PB1 Genes Isolated from Black-Billed Magpies in Southern China
TLDR
The results suggest that black-billed magpies were susceptible to H 9N2 influenza viruses, which raise concerns over possible transmissions of reassortant H9N2 viruses among poultry and wild birds.
Chaetopsinectria (Nectriaceae, Hypocreales), a new genus with Chaetopsina anamorphs
TLDR
The molecular data indicate that the new genus Chaetopsinectria is distantly related to Cosmospora coccinea Rabenh.
Practice towards DNA barcoding of the nectriaceous fungi
TLDR
The partial β-tubulin gene met the requirements for an ideal DNA barcode and functions well for correct species delimitation and is proposed as the possible barcode for the nectriaceous fungi.
Influence of Novel Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza A (H5N1) Virus Infection on Migrating Whooper Swans Fecal Microbiota
TLDR
It is found that H5N1 infection shaped the gut microbiota composition by a difference in the dominance of some genera, such as Aeromonas and Lactobacillus, which highlights that increases in changes in pathogen-containing gut communities occur when individuals become infected with H 5N1.
Absolute Quantification of H5-Subtype Avian Influenza Viruses Using Droplet Digital Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification.
TLDR
This work demonstrates absolute quantification of H5-subtype influenza viruses by digital loop-mediated isothermal amplification (dLAMP) on the recently developed cross-interface emulsification (XiE) method and shows that XiE-based dLAMP is highly specific and displays comparable sensitivity to real-time PCR (qPCR) and digital PCR (dPCR).
Selenium deficiency impairs host innate immune response and induces susceptibility to Listeria monocytogenes infection
TLDR
Induced susceptibility of host resistance is associated with an impaired innate immune response following infection with L. monocytogenes in C57BL/6 Se-deficient mice.
