Seroprevalence of Neospora caninum infection following an abortion outbreak in a dairy cattle herd.
TLDR
The abortions were associated with N caninum infection and there was evidence of reactivation of latent infection close to calving and congenital transmission of infection.
The Chemical Structure of Lipid A
TLDR
It is shown that treatment of the lipopoly- saccharide with alkali at elevated temperature leads, through a β-elimination reaction, to the generation of amice- bound δ2-tetradecenoic acid, suggesting that the 3-hydroxyl group of amide-bound hydroxy fatty acids carried a substituent.
Purification and inhibitory profile of phospholipase A2 inhibitors from Australian elapid sera.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the inhibitor forms a non-covalent association with a purified PLA(2) enzyme, suggesting a role for PLA( 2) inhibitors in the treatment of snake bite victims.
Snake inhibitors of phospholipase A(2) enzymes.
Tick paralysis: development of a vaccine.
Red-back spider (Latrodectus hasselti) antivenom prevents the toxicity of widow spider venoms.
TLDR
RBS-AV prevented both in vitro and in vivo toxicity from Latrodectus venoms and alpha-latrotoxin in mice, suggesting that RBS- AV may be clinically effective in the treatment of envenomation resulting from the bite of other widow spiders.
Functional Characteristics of a Phospholipase A2Inhibitor from Notechis ater Serum*
TLDR
A phospholipase A2 inhibitor has been purified from the serum of Notechis ater using DEAE-Sephacel chromatography and n-terminal sequence analysis reveals a high level of homology to other snake phosphate A2 inhibitors.
