Background: Acute diarrhea is one of the most serious problems in global public health that causes considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide. Human caliciviruses (HuCV) including norovirus (NoV, genogroup GI and GII) and sapovirus (SaV), is a leading cause of acute sporadic diarrhea in individuals across all age groups. However, few studies had been(More)
BACKGROUND Although hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) has been strongly associated with enterovirus 71 (EV71), coxsackievirus A16 (CVA16) and other enteroviruses, studies regarding coxsackievirus A6 (CVA6) infection in HFMD are limited. The aim of this study was to identify the major etiological agents causing HFMD in Nanjing in 2013 and explore the(More)
BACKGROUND Severe complications associated with EV71 infections caused many infants death. However, the pathogenesis of EV71 infection in the severe cases remained poorly understood. METHODS In this study we collected plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens drawn in the acute and/or recovery phases from EV71-infected individuals, and plasma(More)
Zinc (Zn) nutrition affects wheat yield and the health of humans who consume wheat grain. This study determined: 1) how distributions of roots and available Zn (DTPA-Zn) in soil affect the Zn content of wheat plants; and 2) the concentrations of shoot Zn and soil DTPA-Zn needed to obtain high yields and the “target value” of grain Zn biofortification (45 mg(More)
Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is a hepatotropic picornavirus that causes acute liver disease worldwide. Here, we report on the identification of a novel hepatovirus tentatively named Marmota Himalayana hepatovirus (MHHAV) in wild woodchucks (Marmota Himalayana) in China. The genomic and molecular characterization of MHHAV indicated that it is most closely related(More)
A recent histopathologic study implicated human tonsillar crypt epithelium as an important site for EV71 replication in EV71-caused fatal cases. This study aimed to confirm the susceptibility of human tonsillar epithelium to EV71. Two human tonsillar epithelial cell lines (UT-SCC-60A and UT-SCC-60B) were susceptive to EV71, and PI3K/AKT, p38, ERK1/2, and(More)
Adequate zinc (Zn) in maize (Zea mays L.) is required for obtaining Zn-enriched grain and optimum yield. This study investigated the impact of varying Zn fertilizer placements on Zn accumulation in maize plant. Two pot experiments with same design were conducted to investigate the effect of soil Zn heterogeneity by mixing ZnSO4·7H2O (10 mg Zn kg−1 soil on(More)
Rhinovirus C (RV-C), a newly identified group of human rhinoviruses (RVs), is associated with exacerbation of severe asthma. The type I interferon (IFN) response induced by this virus and the mechanisms of evasion of IFN-mediated innate immunity for RV-C remain unclear. In this study, we constructed a full-length cDNA clone of RV-C (LZ651) from a clinical(More)
Respiratory damage is a main manifestation of severe Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection. Polymorphisms of -403G/A (rs2107538), -28C/G (rs2280788), and In1.1T/C (rs2280789) in chemotactic chemokine ligand 5 (CCL5) have linked with many respiratory diseases. In this study, we explored the possible correlation of CCL5 polymorphisms with severe EV71 infection.(More)
