Peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) and tissue samples from 36 sheep were examined for jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV) by hemi-nested PCR. Animals were classified according to the status of sheep pulmonary adenomatosis (SPA), which was confirmed by pathological examination, as follows: (i) sheep with classical SPA (cSPA, n=10), (ii) sheep with atypical(More)
High K+ medium and glutamate elicited a significant [3H]-GABA release in the golden hamster retina. High K+ -induced GABA release was largely calcium-dependent, while the effect of glutamate was Ca2+ -independent. After replacing Na+ by Li+, glutamate-evoked [3H]-GABA release was abolished, while high K+ -evoked release remained unchanged. The effect of(More)
BACKGROUND Jaagsiekte sheep retrovirus (JSRV) causes a contagious lung cancer in sheep and goats that can be transmitted by aerosols produced by infected animals. Virus entry into cells is initiated by binding of the viral envelope (Env) protein to a specific cell-surface receptor, Hyal2. Unlike almost all other retroviruses, the JSRV Env protein is also a(More)
