Establishment of three new genera in the family Geminiviridae: Becurtovirus, Eragrovirus and Turncurtovirus
The establishment of three new genera (Becurtovirus, Eragrovirus and Turn- curtovirus) to accommodate various recently discovered geminiviruses that are highly divergent and, in some cases, have unique genome architectures. Expand
Serological and virological survey of hepatitis E virus in wild boar populations in northwestern Italy: detection of HEV subtypes 3e and 3f
Serological and virological data show that HEV genotypes 3e and 3f circulate in wild boars in northwestern Italy, and provide evidence that autochthonous HEV infections in Italy could also be linked to wild boar populations, suggesting an increased risk for domestically acquired HEV infection in humans through wild animals.

Gammasphaerolipovirus, a newly proposed bacteriophage genus, unifies viruses of halophilic archaea and thermophilic bacteria within the novel family Sphaerolipoviridae
A group of bacteriophages infecting extreme thermophilic Thermus thermophilus and sharing a number of structural and genomic properties with archaeal sphaerolipoviruses is proposed to be included, to include the so far unclassified P23-77-like bacter iophages into a new genus, ''Gammasphaerlipovirus'', within the family SphaerolIPoviridae.

Nine-month follow-up of the insulin receptor signalling cascade in the brain of streptozotocin rat model of sporadic Alzheimer's disease
Results indicate a biphasic pattern in time dependency of onset and progression of changes in brain insulin signalling of STZ-icv model (partly reversible acute toxicity and chronic AD-like changes) which should be considered when using this model as a tool in translational sAD research. Expand
Dietary L-glutamine supplementation increases Pasteurella multocida burden and the expression of its major virulence factors in mice
Glutamine supplementation increased P. multocida burden and the expression of its major virulence factors, while affecting the functions of the lung and spleen, in mouse model. Expand
Taurine chloramine produced from taurine under inflammation provides anti-inflammatory and cytoprotective effects
Taurine is one of the most abundant non- essential amino acid in mammals and has many physio- logical functions in the nervous, cardiovascular, renal, endocrine, and immune systems. UponExpand
Hydrophilic interaction ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled with triple-quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry for highly rapid and sensitive analysis of underivatized amino acids in
This work presented a new analytical method- ology based on hydrophilic interaction ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled with triple-quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry inExpand
Genetic variation analysis of apple chlorotic leaf spot virus coat protein reveals a new phylogenetic type and two recombinants in China
Genetic variation and phylogenetic analyses were carried out on sequences of the apple chlorotic leaf spot virus (ACLSV) coat protein (CP) gene and two natural recom- binants were detected for the first time among ACLSV isolate/genotypes from China. Expand
Carnosine: from exercise performance to health
The current evidence baserelating to the use of b-alanine as an ergogenic aid as well as the potential limitations of its use for these purposes are reviewed, which mainly focusses on issues surrounding carnosinebioavailability. Expand
Dynamic Brazilian Tests of Granite Under Coupled Static and Dynamic Loads
Rocks in underground projects at great depth, which are under high static stresses, may be subjected to dynamic disturbance at the same time. In our previous work (Li et al. Int J Rock Mech Min SciExpand
