The surface glycoprotein G is considered as the major neutralizing and protective antigen of bovine ephemeral fever virus (BEFV). Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence of G protein of BEFV isolates during the period 1984-2004 outbreaks in Taiwan showed amino acid substitutions in the neutralizing epitopes. All the isolates differ markedly in the(More)
Previously, we showed that murine prothymosin alpha (ProT) enhances the efficacy of a pseudorabies DNA vaccine delivered by bacterial vectors. In this study, we cloned and sequenced the cDNA for porcine ProT. The deduced amino acid sequence of porcine ProT exhibited high homology to ProT from other mammals. Oral Salmonella choleraesuis vaccine carrying the(More)
In this study, we exploited a crp (cAMP receptor protein) gene-deleted, virulence plasmid-cured Salmonella choleraesuis mutant with decreased carbon source utilization, designated S.C.-Deltacrp/vpl(-), as a live vaccine strain. Normal weight gain with no clinical signs was observed in pigs immunized with high doses of S.C.-Deltacrp/vpl(-) live vaccine.(More)
