The bluetongue virus (BTV) core protein VP3 plays a crucial role in the virion assembly and replication process. Although the structure of the protein is well characterized, much less is known about the intracellular processing and localization of the protein in the infected host cell. In BTV-infected cells, newly synthesized viral core particles accumulate(More)
A 15-month-old castrated male dog with a history of intermittent epistaxis and sneezing was admitted for the examination of a maxillofacial mass. An impression smear of a biopsy sample from the cauliflower-shaped gingival mass contained numerous round cells, 5-25 microm in diameter, which contained a moderate amount of clear to pale blue cytoplasm and(More)
Prentatal diagnosis of 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD) in two unrelated embryos and two fetuses was attempted with the Southern hybridization method using the 21-hydroxylase (21-OHase) complementary DNA as a probe. The two embryos whose genomic DNA was extracted from their chorionic vili both had four TaqI fragments (3.7 kb, 3.2 kb, 2.4 kb and 2.3 kb)(More)
