The ability of alphaherpesviruses to infect different ruminant species may have important implications for control/eradication efforts. Serological data indicate that goats may be naturally infected with bovine herpesviruses. To investigate the susceptibility of goats to bovine herpesvirus-5 (BoHV-5), 3-4-month-old kids were inoculated intranasally with(More)
We herein report an investigation of nitric oxide (NO) levels, a candidate molecule for neuronal toxicity and dysfunction, in the brain of rabbits during experimental neurological infection by bovine herpesvirus 5 (BoHV-5). Spectrophotometry for NO products (NO2 and NO3) revealed that NO levels were significantly increased (F(4, 40) = 3.33; P <.02) in(More)
Contamination of cell cultures with adventitious viruses may pose serious risks for virology diagnosis, research and vaccine production. This article reports the selection and characterization of three cell lines resistant to bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), a major contaminant of cell cultures. The resistant cells were obtained from canine (MDCK), swine(More)
Methylmalonic acidemias consist of a group of inherited neurometabolic disorders caused by deficiency of methylmalonyl-CoA mutase activity clinically and biochemically characterized by neurological dysfunction, methylmalonic acid (MMA) accumulation, mitochondrial failure and increased reactive species production. Although previous studies have suggested(More)
