Influenza A infection is a serious threat to human and animal health. Many of the biological mechanisms of the host-pathogen-interactions are still not well understood and reliable biomarkers indicating the course of the disease are missing. The mouse is a valuable model system enabling us to study the local inflammatory host response and the influence on(More)
UNLABELLED Cleavage of influenza virus hemagglutinin (HA) by host cell proteases is necessary for viral activation and infectivity. In humans and mice, members of the type II transmembrane protease family (TTSP), e.g., TMPRSS2, TMPRSS4, and TMPRSS11d (HAT), have been shown to cleave influenza virus HA for viral activation and infectivity in vitro Recently,(More)
Infectious endocarditis (IE) in cats is rarely described in the literature. The authors are only aware of four published single case reports 1,2,3,4 and two older cases series. The diagnosis of IE in cats is difficult and mostly based on clinical evidence. This report describes the clinical, laboratory and pathological findings of a cat with evidence of IE.(More)
