We report here the complete genomic sequence of the giant panda rotavirus strain CH-1. This work is the first to document the complete genomic sequence (segments 1 to 11) of the CH-1 strain, which offers an effective platform for providing authentic research experiences to novice scientists. R otaviruses (RVs) are members of the family Reoviridae and cause(More)
Canine distemper virus (CDV) infects a variety of carnivores, including wild and domestic Canidae. In this study, we sequenced and phylogenetic analyses of the hemagglutinin (H) genes from eight canine distemper virus (CDV) isolates obtained from seven raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) and a giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) in China. Phylogenetic(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are innate pattern recognition receptors that play an important role in host resistance to pathogenic microbes. In this study, we cloned the coding region of the yak TLR family (1–10) genes and used bioinformatics to analyze gene characteristics. Real-time fluorescence quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to detect TLR(More)
A real-time PCR for detection and quantification of M. ovipneumoniae was developed using 9 recently sequenced M. ovipneumoniae genomes and primers targeting a putative adhesin gene p113. The assay proved to be specific and sensitive (with a detection limit of 22 genomic DNA) and could quantify M. ovipneumoniae DNA over a wide linear range, from 2.2 × 10(2)(More)
