To more efficiently identify the microbial community of the yak rumen, the standardization of DNA extraction is key to ensure fidelity while studying environmental microbial communities. In this study, we systematically compared the efficiency of several extraction methods based on DNA yield, purity, and 16S rDNA sequencing to determine the optimal DNA(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)
Staphylococcus aureus produces a spectrum of enterotoxin that is recognized as the main reason for causing staphylococcal food poisoning. The aim of the current study was to investigate the phenotypic characteristics and enterotoxin genotypes of S. aureus isolated from food poisoning sufferers. On the basis of the amplification of 16S rRNA and nuc gene(More)
Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease and its underlying pathogenesis is still not fully understood. Therapeutic interventions are currently limited and restricted to the treatment of symptoms rather than targeting the mechanisms underlying the disease. Vascular remodeling is a hallmark of psoriasis; however, anti-vascular strategies to(More)
