Survivin is a member of the inhibitors-of-apoptosis protein (IAPs) family. It promotes cell survival through interference with multiple cell cycle-related proteins such as INCENP and Aurora B kinase. Survivin also inhibits cell death through interference with both caspase-dependent and -independent cell apoptosis. Interestingly, recent evidence suggests(More)
Koi herpesvirus (KHV) poses a significant threat to cultured koi and common carp, both Cyprinus carpio L. Since the first reported case in Israel in 1998, KHV has rapidly spread worldwide. This study investigates the spread of KHV to Taiwan by collecting 49 cases of suspected common carp and koi infections from 2003 to 2005 for analysis. Clinical signs(More)
Survivin is a member of the inhibitor-of-apoptosis (IAP) family which is widely expressed by many different cancers. Overexpression of survivin is associated with drug resistance in cancer cells, and reduced patient survival after chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Agents that antagonize the function of survivin hold promise for treating many forms of cancer.(More)

Taura syndrome virus (TSV) has spread worldwide, causing significant economic losses since Taura syndrome was first described in Ecuador in 1992. To determine the prevalence and impact of TSV infection on the shrimp farming industry in Taiwan, Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei B. were collected from 220 farms between 2004 and 2006 for viral(More)
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) has caused significant losses in shrimp farms worldwide. Between 2004 and 2006, Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei (Boone) were collected from 220 farms in Taiwan to determine the prevalence and impact of WSSV infection on the shrimp farm industry. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis detected WSSV in shrimp from(More)
