In China, several subtype avian influenza viruses consistently circulate in poultry. Numerous studies have focused on the evolution of the hemagglutinin gene; however, studies on the evolution of the matrix (M) gene are limited. In this study, a large-scale phylogenetic analysis of M gene sequences of avian influenza viruses isolated in China revealed that(More)
The C-type lectins DC-SIGN and DC-SIGNR bind and transmit HIV-1 depending on the tetramer formed by "neck" region and carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD). Recent studies indicated polymorphisms in neck region of DC-SIGNR were more frequent and associated with susceptibility to HIV-1 infection, whereas no similar trends were observed on DC-SIGN for rare(More)
