The complete genome sequence of a virulent Newcastle disease virus (NDV) isolated from chickens in Egypt was determined and compared to the sequence of NDV strains isolated from different parts of the world. The genome is 15,186 nucleotides (nt) long and consists of 6 genes in the order of 3′-N-P-M-F-HN-L-5′. The genome contains a 55-nt leader region at the(More)
Newcastle disease virus represents APMV-1 and is the most characterized among all APMV types. The F protein cleavage site sequence is a well-characterized determinant of NDV pathogenicity in chickens. In this study, the sequences of fusion protein (F) gene of three Newcastle disease virus (NDV) strains isolated from outbreak in chickens in the Al-Sharkia(More)
disease virus in clinical samples using real time RT-PCR and melting curve analysis based on matrix and fusion genes amplification, Vet. Introduction protein (M), phosphoprotein (P), and nucleoprotein (NP), in the order 3'-NP-P-M-F-HN-L-5', [4,5]. NDVs Newcastle disease is a highly contagious and fatal were classified into three major pathotypes based on(More)
Rabbit hemorrhagic disease is an acute fatal highly contagious viral infectious disease that causes high losses among rabbitries. The disease was first reported in China in 1984 and later on in Saudi Arabia in 1996. The aim of this study was to investigate the emergence and pathogenicity of new rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) strains in Saudi(More)
Soil aquifer treatment was simulated in 1 m laboratory soil columns containing silica sand under saturated and unsaturated soil conditions to examine the effect of travel length through the unsaturated zone on the removal of wastewater organic matter, the effect of soil type on dissolved organic carbon removal and also the type of microorganisms involved in(More)
Newcastle disease (ND) is a highly devastating disease for the poultry industry as it causes high economic losses. In this present study, a DNA vaccine containing the F and HN surface antigens of a highly virulent Newcastle disease virus (NDV), NDV/1/Chicken/2005 (FJ939313), was successfully generated. Cell transfection test indicated that the vaccine(More)
There are current concerns about the presence of persistent chemicals in recharge water used in soil aquifer treatment systems. Triclocarban (TCC) has been reported as a persistent, high production volume chemical with the potential to bioaccumulate in the environment. It is also known to have adverse effects such as toxicity and suspected endocrine(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to demonstrate the genomic features of Meq gene of Marek's disease virus (MDV) recently circulating in Saudi Arabia (SA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Two poultry flocks suffering from mortalities and visceral tumors were presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, King Faisal University, SA. Subjected to different diagnostic(More)
A 2000 mm long saturated laboratory soil column was used to simulate soil aquifer treatment under saturated conditions to assess the removal of chemical and biochemical oxygen demand (COD and BOD), dissolved organic carbon (DOC), nitrogen and phosphate, using high strength artificial wastewater. The removal rates were determined under a combination of(More)
