 The complete nucleotide sequence of broad bean wilt virus -2 (BBWV-2) RNA 2 was determined. The sequence is 3593 nucleotides in length, and contains a single open reading frame which has the potential to encode a 119 kDa polyprotein. Direct amino acid sequencing of the virus coat proteins suggests that the polyprotein is processed to produce three(More)
Background: The Kidney Disease Quality of Life instrument (KDQOL™) consists of 79 items: 36 asking about health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in general (the Medical Outcomes Study SF-36) and 43 asking about QOL as it is affected by kidney disease and by dialysis. Aim: Translation, cultural adaptation and initial reliability and multitrait testing of the(More)
Previous serological studies strongly suggested Akabane virus to be the etiologic agent of epizootic abortion and congenital arthrogryposis-hydranencephaly in cattle, and this view was further corroborated in this study by the isolation of the virus from an aborted fetus in an epizootic of the disease and from a fetus extracted from a cow which was(More)
The tobamovirus resistance gene L 3 of Capsicum chinense was mapped using an intra-specific F2 population (2,016 individuals) of Capsicum annuum cultivars, into one of which had been introduced the C. chinense L 3 gene, and an inter-specific F2 population (3,391 individuals) between C. chinense and Capsicum frutescence. Analysis of a BAC library with an(More)
Field measurements of CH4 emission from rice paddy field during cultivation periods were performed at all of 47 Japanese prefectures under the project of ‘Research for evaluation of CH4 and N2O emissions from agricultural land, and improvement methods of soil, water and fertilizer management’ conducted by Agricultural Production Bureau, the Ministry of(More)
Antigenic relationships between the Wa, Hochi, Ito, Hosokawa and Nemoto strains of human rotavirus, the SA-11 strain of simian rotavirus, the Lincoln strain of bovine rotavirus, the OSU strain of porcine rotavirus and the R-2 strain of lapine rotavirus, which were all established in cell culture, were studied by neutralization (NT) and immunofluorescence(More)
In the outbreak of abortions, premature births, stillbirths and congenital arthrogryposis-hydranencephaly (AH) syndrome in Japan during the summer through winter of 1972–73 and 1973–74, precolostral sera from calves with congenital AH syndrome and normal calves were tested for neutralizing antibodies against some arboviruses,i. e. Akabane, Aino, Getah and(More)
The Kakegawa strain of bovine coronavirus was easily propagated in suckling mice. Infected animals died with nervous symptoms, and serial passage was readily accomplished by intracerebral inoculation with brain emulsions. The 3rd passage viral material from infected mice evoked the same disease in suckling mice, rats and hamsters inoculated by the(More)
