In the Northwestern part of China there have been reports of clinical cases in small ruminants of a haemoparasite with the characteristics of Theileria hirci (T. lestoquardi). However, some properties of this parasites argue against its classification as T. lestoquardi. In this paper, we present evidence that T. lestoquardi and the Chinese Theileria isolate(More)
Animal Embryonic-Stem (ES) cells represents a unique tool in animal genetic manipulation. Though putative ES cells from several species have been reported, only those from mice proved successful. In this work, a long-term embryonic cell culture, derived from the commercial fish (Sparus aurata), is reported. These cells have been in vitro characterized for(More)
A new pathogenic Theileria species transmitted by Haemaphysalis qinghaiensis was identified in the Northwestern part of China and was shown to be highly pathogenic for small ruminants. The present article aimed at identifying merozoite antigens that might be suitable for developing diagnostic methods and designing a potential vaccine. Absence of other(More)
Neoaspergillic acid (NAA), a pyrazine hydroxamic acid, was produced by mixed cultures of two epiphytic fungi from a rotten fruit of mangrove Avicennia marina from the South China Sea. In the in vitro bioassays, NAA shows significant inhibitory activities against some Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria with MIC ranges of 0.49 – 15.62(More)
