Porcine circovirus 2 quantification by real-time PCR and determination of virus specific antibodies using a peptide based ELISA test was performed on a total of 400 serum samples. Samples for antibody measurement and virus quantification were obtained from a conventional pig farm with a clinical form of post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome. Samples(More)
Expression and purification of whole and nuclear localization signal (NLS) deleted ORF2 capsid protein of porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2) is demonstrated in the present study. Gene coding for both protein forms were cloned into pDest17 vector and expressed in BL21 (DE3)AI cells and in BL21-CodonPlus (DE3)-RIPL E. coli cells. The later cells were used to(More)
Pulmonary hypertension (PH), associated with imbalance in vasoactive mediators and massive remodeling of pulmonary vasculature, represents a serious health complication. Despite the progress in treatment, PH patients typically have poor prognoses with severely affected quality of life. Asymmetric dimethyl arginine (ADMA), endogenous inhibitor of endothelial(More)
The single-strand-specific S1 nuclease from Aspergillus oryzae is an archetypal enzyme of the S1-P1 family of nucleases with a widespread use for biochemical analyses of nucleic acids. We present the first X-ray structure of this nuclease along with a thorough analysis of the reaction and inhibition mechanisms and of its properties responsible for(More)
