Application of a Reverse Transcription-PCR for Identification and Differentiation of Aichi Virus, a New Member of the Picornavirus Family Associated with Gastroenteritis in Humans
ABSTRACT Aichi viruses isolated in Vero cells from seven patients in five gastroenteritis outbreaks in Japan, five Japanese returning from Southeast Asian countries, and five local children inExpand

Molecular epidemiology of rotaviruses among healthy calves in Japan: isolation of a novel bovine rotavirus bearing new P and G genotypes.
A total of 171 fecal specimens collected from healthy calves on a beef farm in Gifu Prefecture, Japan in 2006-2007 were examined for group A rotaviruses by RT-semi-nested PCR targeting the codingExpand

Improved Recovery of Rabies Virus from Cloned cDNA Using a Vaccinia Virus‐Free Reverse Genetics System
To improve efficiency of recovery of rabies virus from cloned cDNA, we established a BHK cell clone that stably expresses T7 RNA polymerase, which we named BHK/T7–9. We also constructed new helperExpand

Whole genome characterization of new bovine rotavirus G21P[29] and G24P[33] strains provides evidence for interspecies transmission.
We have reported a novel bovine rotavirus, the AzuK-1 (G21P[29]) strain, isolated from an asymptomatic calf. We isolated another bovine rotavirus, the Dai-10 strain, bearing new G24P[33] genotypes,Expand

Molecular epidemiology of rabies in Indonesia.
In order to clarify the genetic relationships and dynamics of rabies viruses that are epidemic in Indonesia, we determined and analyzed 1307 nucleotides of nucleoprotein genes of 34 rabies fieldExpand

Complete nucleotide sequence of a group A avian rotavirus genome and a comparison with its counterparts of mammalian rotaviruses.
The nucleotide sequences encoding four structural proteins (VP1-4) and six nonstructural proteins (NSP1-6) of avian rotavirus PO-13 were determined. Based on the results of earlier sequencing studiesExpand

B95a, a marmoset lymphoblastoid cell line, as a sensitive host for rinderpest virus.
We reported earlier that B95a, an Epstein-Barr virus-transformed marmoset B lymphoblastoid cell line, is more susceptible to infection with measles virus than other cells. The cell line also wasExpand

Rabies Virus Nucleoprotein Functions To Evade Activation of the RIG-I-Mediated Antiviral Response
ABSTRACT The rabies virus Ni-CE strain causes nonlethal infection in adult mice after intracerebral inoculation, whereas the parental Nishigahara (Ni) strain kills mice. We previously reported thatExpand

Natural infection with canine distemper virus in a Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata).
A case of encephalitis in a Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata) was examined histopathologically and serologically. The animal had brain lesions consisting of perivascular cuffs, malacia, inclusionExpand

A Comparison of Complete Genome Sequences of the Attenuated RC‐HL Strain of Rabies Virus Used for Production of Animal Vaccine in Japan, and the Parental Nishigahara Strain
In order to establish the molecular basis of the pathogenicity of the attenuated RC‐HL strain of rabies virus used for the production of animal vaccine in Japan, the complete genome sequence of thisExpand
