Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) infection causes postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome and porcine circovirus-associated diseases in many regions. A total of 77 sequences, including 31 sampled from Henan province of China, were retrieved from GenBank and subjected to amino acid variation and phylogenetic analyses. The two PCV genotypes prevailing in(More)
Volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) are the main source for malodor from composting plants. In this study, the VSCs generated from composting of 15-80 mm municipal solid waste (T0), kitchen waste (T1) and kitchen waste mixed dry cornstalks (T2) were measured in 60 L reactors with forced aeration for a period of 30 days. The VSCs detected in all treatments were(More)
PRRSV infection ADE facilitates the attachment and internalization of the virus onto its host cells, such as monocytes and macrophages, through Fc receptor-mediated endocytosis. FcγRIIB is the only inhibitory receptor with a tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) in its cytoplasmic tail, where counters the "ITAM triggered" activation signals and(More)
We report the strategies leading to the large-production of soluble non-tag full-length porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) Cap protein in Escherichia coli. Under neutral pH condition, the purified recombinant Cap protein derived from E. coli expression self-assembles into homogenous round virus-like particle at the similar size of that of the intact PCV2(More)
PRRSV infection ADE facilitates the attachment and internalization of the virus onto macrophages through Fc receptor-mediated endocytosis. FcγRI is the activating receptor with a tyrosine-based activating motif (ITAM) in its cytoplasmic tail, where up-regulates phagocytosis. However, porcine FcγRI's role in the antiviral immune response to PRRSV infection(More)
We report here the complete genome sequence of HeN1505, a field isolate of classical swine fever virus belonging to the new subgenotype 2.1d. HeN1505 distinguishes itself from other classical swine fever virus (CSFVs) by 1 amino acid substitution in position 159 (threonine by isoleucine), which led to the loss of one N-glycosylation site in the N(pro)(More)
Pseudorabies (PR) is an economically important viral disease of pigs which can infect numerous species of mammals including rodents. Commercial PR vaccines have been widely used worldwide to control and eradicate this disease. However, some PRV vaccines such as Bartha-K61 were occasionally reported to be lethal to mice. Since mice are commonly found in pig(More)
The effects of adding a bulking agent and chemically pretreating municipal kitchen waste before aerobic composting were studied using a laboratory-scale system. The system used 20-L reactors and each test lasted 28days. The objective was to decrease NH3 and H2S emissions during composting. The bulking agent, dry cornstalks, was mixed with the kitchen waste(More)
The new-emerging PRV variants plague the vaccinated pigs and caused huge economic loss to local pig industry in China since 2011. The current commercial PRV vaccines cannot provide complete protection as the new-emerging PRV variants are antigenically different from the classical viruses. It is urgent to develop more safe and effective PRV vaccines based on(More)
