Swine share with most placental mammals the same five antibody isotypes and same two light chain types. Loci encoding lambda, kappa and Ig heavy chains appear to be organized as they are in other mammals. Swine differ from rodents and primates, but are similar to rabbits in using a single VH family (VH3) to encode their variable heavy chain domain, but not(More)
The ability to identify factors responsible for disease in all species depends on the ability to separate those factors which are environmental from those that are intrinsic. This is particularly important for studies on the development of the adaptive immune response of neonates. Studies on laboratory rodents or primates have been ambiguous because neither(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MR imaging is currently not used to evaluate CSF flow changes due to short-lasting physiological maneuvers. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of MR imaging to assess the CSF flow response to a Valsalva maneuver in healthy participants. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cardiac-gated fast cine-PC sequence with ≤15-second(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Invasive pressure studies have suggested that CSF flow across the foramen magnum may transiently decrease after coughing in patients with symptomatic Chiari I malformation. The purpose of this exploratory study was to demonstrate this phenomenon noninvasively by assessing CSF flow response to coughing in symptomatic patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore forensic pathology features of the fatal trichinosis cases and to summarize the population distribution characteristics of trichinosis in Yunnan. METHODS Nine recent fatal trichinosis cases were collected from the Forensic Science Identification Center of Kunming Forensic Hospital. Pathological and epidemiological characteristics of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the development and changes of pressure of putrefactive gas (PPG) in cadaveric enterocelia in spring, and to explore its application in estimation of postmortem interval (EPI). METHODS 57 goats were divided into 2 groups according to means of death, on land or in water. Celiac PPG were observed timely and systematically. RESULTS The(More)
RNA interference (RNAi) is considered as a potential modality for clinical treatment and anti-virus animal breeding. Here, we investigate the feasibility of inhibiting classical swine fever virus (CSFV) replication by short hairpin RNA (shRNA) in vitro and in vivo. We generate four different shRNA-positive clonal cells and two types of shRNA-transgenic(More)
