The seroprevalence of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) infection in yaks was investigated in Qinghai and Tibet of China during the year 2011. A total of 549 (Tibet 287, Qinghai 262) serum samples was collected from Tibet and Qinghai and were examined for BVDV p80 antibody by ELISA. The results of the experiment showed that 145 (53.65 %) of Tibetan samples(More)
Bovine ephemeral fever (BEF) is caused by the arthropod-borne bovine ephemeral fever virus (BEFV), which is classified in family Rhabdoviridae and genus Ephemerovirus. However, it is still unclear whether yaks from the Tibetan plateau of China are exposed to BEFV. It is the first time that a survey was conducted to investigate the seroprevalence of BEFV(More)
The Pasteurella multocida lipoprotein B (PlpB) was cloned from Pasteurella multocida (P. multocida) strain LZ-PM (serotype A) and expressed in Escherichia coli (E. coli). Sequence analysis showed that PlpB from different strains of P. multocida exhibited 80.8-99.4% sequence identity to each other, suggesting that PlpB might serve as a cross-protective(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) trigger the innate immune response by responding to specific components of microorganisms. The TIR domain-containing adaptor inducing IFN-β (TRIF) plays an essential role in mammalian TLR-mediated signaling. The role of TRIF in ducks (duTRIF) remains poorly understood. In this study, we cloned and characterized the full-length(More)
Toxocara vitulorum has been rarely reported in yaks at high altitudes and remote areas of Sichuan Province of Tibetan Plateau of China. The current study was designed to investigate the prevalence, associated risk factors, and phylogenetic characteristics of T. vitulorum in yak calves on the Qinghai Tibetan plateau. Fecal samples were collected from 891 yak(More)
Parasitic nematodes of Oesophagostomum spp., commonly known as 'nodular worms' are one of the most widely distributed and prevalent emerging zoonotic nematodes. However, little is known about the prevalence and gene characteristics of those parasites in Tibetan pigs. Therefore, a study was carried out to investigate the prevalence, isolation and(More)
The prevalence of swine pandemic H1N1/2009 influenza A virus (SIV-H1N1/2009) in pigs has the potential to generate novel reassortant viruses, posing a great threat to human health. Cellular microRNAs (miRNAs) have been proven as promising small molecules for regulating influenza A virus replication by directly targeting viral genomic RNA. In this study, we(More)
Bovine tuberculosis (BTB), a chronic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis, has been widely reported in bovines in developing countries, but there is little information on this infection in domestic yaks. Seroprevalence of antibodies to M. bovis in yaks from six and three regions of Tibet and Qinghai plateau, China, respectively, was investigated in 2011 by(More)
Pasteurella multocida (P. multocida) was first shown to be the causative agent of fowl cholera by Louis Pasteur in 1881. First genomic study was performed on an avirulent avian strain Pm70, and until 2013, two genomes of virulent avian strains X73 and P1059 were sequenced. Comparative genome study supplied important information for further study on the(More)
