Investigation of a serious pig disease with high mortality and typical lung lesions yielded a bacterial isolate identified as Providencia alcalifaciens based on the 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analysis. The pathogenicity of this bacterial isolate was confirmed in piglets and mice. The bacterial strain caused the typical illness in piglets, which suffered(More)
The crested ibis is one of the most endangered birds in the world, found only in Shaanxi Province in Central China, and it has been reintroduced in Sadogashima in Japan. Two Newcastle disease virus (NDV) isolates were collected from sick crested ibises, and their pathogenic and phylogenetic characteristics were investigated. The results showed that they are(More)
Nitrogen and metal doped nanocarbons derived from polyaniline (PANI) have been widely explored as electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in fuel cells. In this work, we report surfactant-template synthesis of PANI nanostructures and the ORR electrocatalysts derived from them. By using cationic surfactant such as the cetyl trimethyl(More)
OBJECTIVE The mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of intractable epilepsy (IE) are still unclear. This study aimed to investigate the role of phosphorylation of Cyclase Response Element Binding Protein (p-CREB)/microRNA-132 (miR-132) signal pathway in the epileptogenesis. METHODS Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) was induced in rodents, and the brain(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the virulence and evolution of genotype IX Newcastle disease virus (NDV) isolates obtained from wild birds in the northern Qinling Mountains of China. Five isolates were obtained from 374 larynx and cloacae swabs, which were collected from multiple asymptomatic wild bird species from August 2008 to July 2011, and were(More)
Combined with air annealing, rutile-structured IrO2 nanoparticles with various sizes were prepared using colloidal method. The nanoparticles were used as the electrocatalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) in acidic media, and their grain size effect was studied. The results show that with the increase in annealing temperature, the grain size of(More)
This paper describes the complete genome sequence of HX01, an isolate of the Newcastle disease virus (NDV) collected from a swine disease outbreak. The genome is 15,186 nt long and consists of six genes in the order of 3′-NP-P-M-F-HN-L-5′. This genome has the same length as the old NDV genotypes (I–IV), whereas the new NDV genotypes (V–IX) are 15,192 nt(More)
