Riemerella anatipestifer is a well-described pathogen of waterfowl and other avian species which can cause a great loss to the poultry industry. Here we obtained the complete genome sequence of R. anatipestifer strain RA-GD, which was isolated from an infected duck in Guangzhou, China, and was cultivated in our laboratory.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen responsible for nosocomial infections and is currently reported to be a worldwide nosocomial menace. The aim of this study was to investigate the epidemiological traits and the distribution of metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs)-producing P. aeruginosa clinical isolates in ten cities in China between… (More)
Emerging online video-sharing websites such as YouTube allow users to access a huge number of videos and generate feedback via reviews and/or live comments (a.k.a. danmu), making it possible to summarize videos based on media and user responses collectively. A video summary produced by existing techniques may not fully capture the audience's perception of… (More)
Hexokinase (HK) is one of the key enzymes in the glycolytic pathway that catalyzes the phosphorylation of glucose. In the present study, we cloned the HK gene from the coccidian Eimeria tenella (EtHK), expressed EtHK as a His-tagged fusion protein, and characterized its primary biochemical features. Mutagenesis confirmed that residues S159, N216, and D217… (More)
To investigate the prevalence and assess the zoonotic transmission burden of Cryptosporidium species in domestic pigeons in Guangdong Province, Southern China, 244 fecal samples were collected from four pigeon breeding farms between June 2012 and March 2013. Cryptosporidium oocysts were purified by Sheather’s sugar flotation technique and characterized by… (More)
