Use of CD134 As a Primary Receptor by the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
TLDR
A primary receptor for FIV is identified as CD134 (OX40), a T cell activation antigen and costimulatory molecule that promotes viral binding and renders cells permissive for viral entry, productive infection, and syncytium formation. Expand
A novel antigenic variant of Canine parvovirus from a Vietnamese dog
TLDR
It is shown that an amino acid substitution caused an antigenic difference demonstrable by monoclonal antibodies and that a similar evolution may have occurred in CPV in Vietnam. Expand
Sequence variation of bovine prion protein gene in Japanese cattle (Holstein and Japanese Black).
TLDR
There were differences in allele frequency between healthy Holstein and JB cattle at the 23- and 12-bp indels and at the SNPs at nucleotide positions 234 and 576, but there was no difference in allele Frequency of the octapeptide repeat. Expand
Establishment of a feline T-lymphoblastoid cell line highly sensitive for replication of feline immunodeficiency virus
TLDR
Interleukin-2 dependent feline T-lymphoblastoid cells designated as MYA-1 cells were established, free from exogenous retroviruses and sensitive for replication of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Expand
Identification of a Novel Subgroup of Koala Retrovirus from Koalas in Japanese Zoos
TLDR
The results indicate that the invasion of the koala population by KoRV-J may have occurred more recently than invasion by Ko RV-A, which was identified earlier this year. Expand
Bacteriological survey of feces from feral pigeons in Japan.
TLDR
Levels of four bacterial contaminations in fecal samples from feral pigeons in 7 prefectures indicate that pigeon feces are a source of several zoonotic agents for birds, animals and humans in Japan. Expand
Predominance of canine parvovirus (CPV) in unvaccinated cat populations and emergence of new antigenic types of CPVs in cats.
TLDR
Serological, sequence, and in vitro host range analyses of feline parvovirus isolates in Vietnam and Taiwan indicated the possibility that CPV-2a/2b-type viruses can spread in cats more efficiently than conventional FPLV under natural conditions and that CPVs are further evolving in cats. Expand
Junctional Adhesion Molecule 1 Is a Functional Receptor for Feline Calicivirus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that feline JAM-1 is a functional receptor for FCV, simian Jam-1 also functions as a receptor for some strains of FCv, and the interaction between FCV and JAM -1 molecules may be a determinant of viral tropism. Expand
Serodiagnosis of Toxoplasma gondii infection in cats by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using recombinant SAG1.
TLDR
The gene encoding surface antigen 1 (SAG1, P30) of Toxoplasma gondii was cloned into the plasmid pGEX-4T-3 and subsequently expressed in Escherichia coli as a glutathione-S-transferase (GST) fusion protein, which was evaluated in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for serological diagnosis of toxoplasmosis. Expand
Feline Host Range of Canine parvovirus: Recent Emergence of New Antigenic Types in Cats
TLDR
The pathogenic potential of CPV in cats is illustrated, the risk caused by CPV variants is assessed and the prevalence ofCPV-2a and 2b infection in a wide range of cat populations is demonstrated. Expand
