Rapid detection of feline morbillivirus by a reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification
TLDR
The FmoPV RT-LAMP assay is rapid, simple and highly specific for the detection of FMoPV, and thus, it would be a reliable detection method for FMOPV. Expand
Basic biological characterization of feline morbillivirus
TLDR
The biological characteristics of FmoPV reported here will be beneficial for establishing an efficient virus isolation method and will provide important information to take a measure to reduce the risk of FMoPV infection. Expand
In vitro host range of feline morbillivirus
TLDR
Results indicate that the receptor (s) for FmoPV are ubiquitously expressed in cats, which suggests least threatening of cross-species transmission of FMoPV from cats to humans. Expand
Endogenization and excision of human herpesvirus 6 in human genomes
TLDR
Human genomes carrying only one portion of the HHV-6B genome, a solo-DR, are reported, supporting in vivo excision and possible viral reactivation of the only intact (non-retro)viral genome known to be present in human germlines. Expand
Molecular characterization of feline paramyxovirus in Japanese cat populations
TLDR
It was found that FPaV belongs to the genus Jeilongvirus and forms a clade with Mount Mabu Lophuromys virus 1 (MMLV-1), and lacks a small hydrophobic (SH) gene that is found in members of the genusJeilongVirus ; however, some jeilongviruses also do not have this gene. Expand
Experimental infection of Japanese macaques with simian retrovirus 5.
TLDR
It is concluded that the causative agent of hemorrhagic syndrome occurred at the external breeding facility for NIPS was SRV-5, which infected a variety of tissues in Japanese macaques, especially in digestive and lymph organs. Expand
Endogenization and excision of human herpesvirus 6 in human genomes
TLDR
The incidence of HHV-6 integration into the germline is lower than its prevalence, and the evolution and risk of reactivation of the only intact non-retroviral genome known to be present in human germlines are clarified. Expand
