Deep sequencing was used to bring high resolution to the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) transcriptome at the stage when infectious virion production is under way, and major findings were confirmed by extensive experimentation using conventional techniques. The majority (65.1%) of polyadenylated viral RNA transcription is committed to producing four noncoding(More)
We used deep sequencing of poly(A) RNA to characterize the transcriptome of an economically important eel virus, anguillid herpesvirus 1 (AngHV1), at a stage during the lytic life cycle when infectious virus was being produced. In contrast to the transcription of mammalian herpesviruses, the overall level of antisense transcription from the 248,526-bp(More)
Mycobacterium bovis is the causal agent of bovine tuberculosis, one of the most important diseases currently facing the UK cattle industry. Here, we use high-density whole genome sequencing (WGS) in a defined sub-population of M. bovis in 145 cattle across 66 herd breakdowns to gain insights into local spread and persistence. We show that despite low(More)
Prostate cancer does not appear to respond to immune checkpoint therapies where T-cell infiltration may be a key limiting factor. Here, we report evidence that ablating the growth regulatory kinase Erk5 can increase T-cell infiltration in an established Pten-deficient mouse model of human prostate cancer. Mice that were doubly mutant in prostate tissue for(More)
The relatively low levels of human salivary proteins in whole saliva as compared to the ductal secretions may be related to their interaction with oral bacteria. These interactions are thought to play an important role in the microbial colonisation of the mouth, and salivary proteins adsorbed to oral surfaces have been implicated in adherence. In this study(More)
