The development of Neospora caninum tachyzoites, an apicomplexan protozoan parasite, was studied in vitro using the human breast carcinoma cell 7 (MCF-7) as the host cell line. The extracellular NC-1 tachyzoites in MCF-7 cells were observed and counted daily for 6 consecutive days post-infection to establish the growth curve. The intracellular parasites(More)
IDH2 encodes a mitochondrial metabolic enzyme that converts isocitrate to α-ketoglutarate (α-KG) by reducing nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP+) to NADPH and participates in the citric acid cycle for energy production. Notably, this gene has been shown to be critical for cell proliferation. The abnormal expression of IDH2 has been reported(More)
Chickens are susceptible to the highly pathogenic H5N1 strain of avian influenza virus (HPAIV), whereas ducks are not. Here, we used high-throughput sequencing to analyse the microRNA expression in the spleen, thymus and bursa of Fabricius of H5N1-HPAIV-infected and non-infected chickens and ducks. We annotated the genomic positions of duck microRNAs and we(More)
BACKGROUND Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast constitutes the early stage of breast cancer when cancer cells are confined by the intact myoepithelial cell layer. Transition from DCIS to invasive carcinoma is a process yet poorly understood. MATERIALS AND METHODS By liquid chromatography (LC) and mass spectrometry (MS/MS) methods, we analyzed this(More)
Neosporosis is an intracellular protozoan disease caused by Neospora caninum. Until now, there is no effective vaccine to prevent neosporosis. The host cell binding protein has the potential as neosporosis vaccine. In the present study, a T7 phage display library was constructed and screened using Vero cells to obtain host cell binding protein of N.(More)
The growth of muscle fibers can be negatively regulated by bovine myostatin. The first two exons of myostatin gene code for the N-propeptide and its third exon codes for the C-polypeptide. Myostatin is secreted as a latent configuration formed by dimerization of two matured C peptides non-covalently linked with the N terminal pro-peptide. Pro-peptide has(More)
