Grapevine Syrah virus-1 (GSyV-1) was identified by small-RNA deep sequencing in Slovak grapevine co-infected by several other viruses. The RT-PCR assays developed in this work substantially improved the virus detection and allowed the identification of GSyV-1 in tested grapevine samples from Slovakia and the Czech Republic at an unexpectedly high rate (ca.(More)
DSG appears to have a unique, although as yet undefined, mechanism of action and may be a useful immunosuppressive agent. Because DSG is effective in reducing preformed antibodies in the xenograft situation, it may have a significant advantage in ABO-incompatible grafts in transplant recipients with high panel-reactive antibodies. Most important, DSG may(More)
INTRODUCTION Melanized or dematiaceous fungi are associated with a wide variety of infectious syndromes. Cladophialophora bantiana is one of the most common and dangerous neurotropic fungi, able to cause brain abscess and disseminated infection. CASE PRESENTATION We report a new case of phaeohyphomycosis brain abscesses caused by C. bantiana in Slovakia.(More)
Total RNAs from a symptomless tomato plant were subjected to next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis, revealing the presence of a single viral agent - potato virus Y (PVY). The analysis of determined full-length genome sequence assigned the PVY SL16 isolate to the recombinant PVY-N-Wi strain group. A series of primers targeting the four main recombinant(More)
Grapevine rupestris stem pitting-associated virus (GRSPaV) is a worldwide-distributed pathogen in grapevines with a high genetic variability. Our study revealed differences in the complexity of GRSPaV population in a single host. A single-variant GRSPaV infection was detected from the SK30 grapevine plant. On the contrary, SK704 grapevine was infected by(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to test the utility of benchtop NGS platforms for NIPT for trisomy 21 using previously published z score calculation methods and to optimize the sample preparation and data analysis with use of in silico and physical size selection methods. METHODS Samples from 130 pregnant women were analyzed by whole genome(More)
Although Prune dwarf virus (PDV) is one of the most common viruses infecting stone fruits (Prunus spp.), most of the molecular diversity studies have so far focused on the capsid protein (CP) gene. An alternative diagnostic primer pair targeting the movement protein (MP) gene was used in the present work, increasing then polyvalence of PDV detection in(More)
A novel monoclonal antibody DC39N1 specific for tau protein N-terminal insert N1 (residues 45-73) was developed. Species analysis revealed that monoclonal antibody DC39N1 did not recognize tau proteins derived from rat, mouse, bovine, swine and rabbit brain tissues and is human tau protein specific. The antibody recognized all and only those human tau(More)
