The HPAIV continues to occur in some countries in Southeast Asia despite control programmes encompassing surveillance, vaccination and(More)
Classically, activated transcription by nuclear receptors (NRs) is due to a ligand-induced switch from corepressor- to coactivator-bound states. However, coactivators and corepressors recognize overlapping surfaces of liganded and unliganded NRs, respectively. Here we show that, at sufficiently high concentration, the NR corepressor (NCoR) influences the(More)
4-Cyano-3-oxido-1-beta-D-ribofuranosylpyridazinium (10a) has been prepared from 4-cyano-3(2H)-pyridazinone (4) by using a low-temperature, kinetically controlled, silyl Hilbert-Johnson reaction followed by deblocking of the resulting triacetate derivative, 8a, with NaHCO3 in methanol. 10a is apparently the first example of a mesoionic analogue of a(More)
The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) carries out Gap Analysis missions (if a country so wishes) as part of its programme to assess and improve the Performance of Veterinary Services (the 'PVS Pathway') in Member Countries. These Gap Analysis missions have found that many national Veterinary Services comply to only a limited extent with the(More)
